The Tales of Beedle the Bard
by

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 Tales of Beedle the Bard
by J. K. Rowling

The dazzlingly brilliant Chris Riddell brings his magical illustration talents to J.K. Rowling’s gloriously inventiveThe Tales of Beedle the Bard in a fully illustrated colour edition of this essential classic for Harry Potter fans. Translated from the runes by Hermione Granger, the volume includes ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’, familiar to readers of Harry Potter from the crucial role it played inHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Mischievous and witty, these five rollicking tales are a deeply satisfying read in the tradition of all great fables and fairytales. Kindnesses are rewarded and selfishness shown to be the ruin of many a wizard. Burping cauldrons, hairy hearts and cackling stumps are met along the way. Each of the tales is accompanied by a deliciously subversive and insightful commentary by Professor Albus Dumbledore, all brought vividly to life with Riddell’s trademark wit and elegance.

Former Waterstones Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell is the only illustrator to have won the Kate Greenaway Medal three times, and is brought together here for the first time with one of the world’s best loved storytellers in this new edition of J.K. Rowling’s fairytale classic.

Much loved by generations of witches and wizards since they first appeared in the fifteenth century, this deluxe slipcased edition is a must-have for any fan, aficionado or collector and is set to become a firm favourite at bedtime in non-magical households the world over.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard is published in aid of Lumos, an international children’s charity founded in 2005 by J.K. Rowling.

Rowling Revisited: Return Trips to Harry, Fantastic Beasts, Quidditch, & Beedle the Bard
by James W. Thomas

Dr. James W. Thomas is the author of Repotting Harry Potter: A Professor’s Guide for the Serious Re-Reader. Readers of that book will find in Rowling Revisited additional insights as Professor Thomas revisits the seven Potter books. Once again, he focuses on humor, puns, foreshadowing, and literary parallels and echoes in Harry’s saga, in addition to re-examining some of his previous conclusions. Rowling Revisited also provides readers with insight to and analysis of Rowling’s three ancillary books, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Dr. Thomas takes readers through Rowling’s wise and witty brief books, emphasizing the surprising rewards of rereading. He approaches Rowling’s books about beasts and Hogwart’s favorite magical sport with the whimsy they warrant and gives readers an experienced literary analyst’s view on Beedle’s tales. Especially useful in Rowling Revisited are three extensive appendixes-“Fantastic Beasts and the Pages Where You’ll Find Them,” “Quidditch Through the Pages,” and “The Books in the Potter Books.” These listings include all significant references in the Harry Potter books to magical creatures, to Quidditch, and to Beedle the Bard and all the other books that magic folk read. In addition to making another rereading of the Potter books more rewarding, Rowling Revisited encourages readers to return to-or to discover for the first time-Rowling’s delightful books on beasts and Quidditch, as well as Beedle’s wonderful tales.
