The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

From the back cover: The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a Wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers' attention in the book known as Harry Pooter and the Deathy 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", "Babbity Rabbity and Her Cackling Stump", and of course "The Tale of the Three Brothers." But not only are they equal of fairy tales we now know and love, reading them gives new insight into the world of Harry Potter. This was cute. I mean, I read it in like 40 minutes, but I liked the stories. My favorite would probably have to be "The Foutain of Fair Fortune." "The Warlock's Hairy Heart" was pretty scary though, the picture of that hairy heart, ew! But all in all it was good. But I'm glad I bought it online and not at the store for alot more.
