The Tales of Beedle the Bard (J.K Rowling) BOOK REVIEW

17:00 Hannah - 10 Comments

Ahoy!

Now, before I start, I would just like to say how much I love the Hogwarts Library. It is so unique and special and awesome and well-written! Thank-you, J.K Rowling for writing these!





In a Nutshell:

Translated from runes by Hermione Granger, she shares with you the traditional wizarding fairytales we all wish were a part of our toddler-hood!

The Actual Review:
I love the Tales of Beedle the Bard and the first word that comes to mind is 'charming.' True to all fables each of the five stories featured in the book carry a message to learn something from and a loveable story that sticks with you. 

    My favourite stories are Babbity Rabbity and the Wizard and the Hopping Pot although the Fountain of Fair Fortune left me a little bored, but this was, of course, compensated by Dumbledore's hilarious comments which just add to the whimsy and charm of the Hogwarts Library.

  2. I was literally looking at the Hogwarts Library collection in waterstones today and thinking a) how lovely the collection looked in the way the books were designed and b) how interesting they would be to read ! I can't wait to read them ( I'm hoping someone will love me enough to get them me as a Christmas pressie hehe ) I always love your reviews !

    Lots of love, Marianne xxx

    1. Not many people do, surprisingly! Yes, all of the books in the Hogwarts Library (Fantastic Beasts, Qudditch tpThrough the Ages and Tales of Beedle the Bard) are all mentioned somewhere in the main books - I love them and strongly recommend them to Potterheads!
