Manufacturer:Scholastic
Author:J. K. Rowling
Publisher:Scholastic
Illustrator:Mary GranPre
Binding:hardcover
Pages:128


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
* The Tale of the Three Brothers

The stories are accompanied by delightful pen-and-ink illustrations by Ms. Rowling herself, featuring a still-life frontispiece for each one. Professor Dumbledore's commentary -- apparently written some eighteen months before his death -- reveals not just his vast knowledge of Wizarding lore, but also more of his personal qualities: his sense of humor, his courage, his pride in his abilities and his hard-won wisdom. Names familiar from the Harry Potter novels sprinkle the pages, including Aberforth Dumbledore, Lucius Malfoy and his forebears and Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington (or "Nearly Headless Nick"), as well as other professors at Hogwarts and the past owners of the Elder Wand. Dumbledore tells us of incidents unique to the Wizarding world, like hilariously troubled theatrical productions at Hogwarts or the dangers of having a "hairy heart". But he also reveals aspects of the Wizarding world that his Muggle readers might find all too familiar, like censorship, intolerance and questions about the deepest mysteries in life.

But not only are these tales the equal of fairy tales we now know and love, reading them gives new insight into the world of Harry Potter. This purchase also represents another very important form of giving: From every sale of this book, Scholastic will give its net proceeds to The Children's High Level Group, a charity cofounded in 2005 by J. K. Rowling and Emma Nicholson MEP to make life better for vulnerable children.
