These tales are known for the part they play in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. After the success of the book, J. K. Rowling decided to write them all down! Please read on for my review of
The Tales of Beedle The Bard
It is supposedly a book with children’s stories, written by Beedle the Bard, with notes from Albus Dumbledore.
But after reading those stories, I can tell you that not all are suitable for children. Nonetheless, they are very educating, reminding of me Aesop’s fables. Some of them may be suitable for younger ages, too. Having grown up with those classics, it was a very nice change reading well worked stories.
It is a very interesting addition to the Harry Potter Universe, that takes us back to small moments of magic.
The heroes and heroines who triumph in his stories are not those with the most powerful magic, but rather those who demonstrate the most kindness, common sense and ingenuity.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a Wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers’ attention in the book known as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger’s new translation from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an introduction, notes, and illustrations by J. K. Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore.
Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: “The Wizard and the Hopping Pot,” “The Fountain of Fair Fortune,” “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart,” “Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump,” and of course, “The Tale of the Three Brothers.” But not only are they the equal of fairy tales we now know and love, reading them gives new insight into the world of Harry Potter.
