Have you noticed I'm in a row of posting!?!?... lol~ Three days straight baby! ;) Anyways, I bought a book before Christmas at Costco. I finally had a chance to read it.
Title: The Tales of Beedle the Bard
Author: J.K. Rowling
Price: $7.06 at Costco ($12.99 price on the back)
Description on the back: 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.
My thoughts: I really did enjoy reading the five different stories. They're like fairy tales like Cinderella to us humans, muggles, but fitting to the wizarding world! :) My favorite has to be "The Fountain of Fair Fortune." If you're expecting thick Harry Potter books, then you're mistaken. It's an easy read that you can read in one sitting. It only has 107 pages!!!
I also took a picture of the inside of the book so you guys can see it.
On the right is how Albus Dumbledore's comments look after each story.
* Interesting stories.
* Albus Dumbledore comments after each stories.
* You can relate more to the Harry Potter series.
* Great addition to Harry Potter freaks.
* The book is way too short.
* Some of the stories you can conclude what will happen.
