From the Inside Flap
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 know and love, reading them gives new insight into the wizarding world.
This purchase also represents another very important form of giving: From every sale of this book, Scholastic will give its net proceeds to Lumos, an international non-profit organization founded by J.K. Rowling that works globally to transform the lives of disadvantaged children. wearelumos.org

It includes a beautiful outer "box" that is a mock leather bound edition, and inside a book of The Tale of Beedle the Bard which is encased in a velvet back for protection. The illustrated prints are incredible. A great purchase!

The first time I heard of The Tales of Beedle the Bard was - of course - in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. And I laughed out loud, crying and giggling for minutes when I first heard of Babbity Rabbity and Her Cackling Stump.
My favourite tale is The Fountain of Fair Fortune. It just warms my heart every single time I read it. It's quite the opposite of The Warlock's Hairy Heart, but in a way, I still love the utter disgust and shock it produces.
Dumbledore's notes are pretty spectacular as well. I love how he shamelessly tells Lucius Malfoy off in his letter about banning a tale from the Hogwarts Library. And by Merlin's Beard is Aberforth so fascinated by goats? It's always going to remain a mystery to me.
This is an amazing, original collection of wondrous and beautiful, cruel and magical tales. If someone can create fairytales that feel like they could be in Grimm's collection, then it's definitely J. K. Rowling. I never thought it possible that someone could write a fairytale, that feels as old and as magical as the ones I grew up with. But I also never thought that a writer could have such an impact on my life.
THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT!
They obviously aren't about Harry and co, but they are a wonderful look into the folklore of the series. They are written in the style of nursery rhymes, and are easy to read.
Having read the books or seen the films, you will probably know about the tale of the three brothers, but the other tales are just as fascinating.
There has been so much effort put into the book.
The outer book is very secure and beautifully made. It actually looks like a book its self but its cradling the smaller book which is inside a lovely little back with jk rowlings signature stitched into it.
The smaller book is decorated as you can see in the pics and its done in a way that makes you think it could actually be THE orginal!
The print inside the book is very nice and theres a foreword written by jk rowling which is lovely and in her own writing.
all in all a fantastic buy. If more become available i would highly recommend them to all big harry potter fans. a great book collectable and also the tales themselves are brill. I will be telling them to my children one day =)
I have hardly looked at the book as it is a present for my much better half and I am sure she will be delighted with it. Another plus point is the way the book is hidden away in a much larger book that looks as though it could have come off a bookshelf at Hogwarts. There will not be many left now but if you do get the chance to purchase this I have no hesitation in recommending it. Expensive but worth it.
JK Rowling expands the HP universe in a lovely way with stories for all ages.
Recommend for sure for any HP fans of any age and even as a story book for kids.
At the end of each story Professor Dumbledore evaluates each story, sometimes it seems long winded but there's some facts that are interesting.
