Published by the Children's High Level Group in association with Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, The Tales of Beedle the Bard is the first new book from J.K. Rowling since the publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Tales of Beedle the Bard played a crucial role in assisting Harry, with his friends Ron and Hermione, to finally defeat Lord Voldemort. Fans will be thrilled to have this opportunity to read the tales in full, and now for the first time, with full-colour illustrations by award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell.
An exciting addition to the canon of Harry Potter, the tales reveal the wonderful versatility of the author, as she tackles with relish the structure and varying tones of a classic fairy tale.
There are five tales: 'The Tale of the Three Brothers', recounted in Deathly Hallows, plus 'The Fountain of Fair Fortune', 'The Warlock's Hairy Heart', 'The Wizard and the Hopping Pot', and 'Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump'. Each has its own magical character and will bring delight, laughter and the thrill of mortal peril. These tales come to life, with lively illustrations showing each tale's characters in their various dilemmas.
Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, the tales are introduced by J.K. Rowling, and include notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore, which appear by kind permission of the Hogwarts Headmasters' Archive.
In beautiful high-quality hardback, this edition is a must for every serious Harry Potter collection.
