Synopsis:

Bloomsbury, in association with the Children's High Level Group, is delighted to announce THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD, the first new book from J. K. Rowling since the publication of the final book in the Harry Potter series, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS. THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD played a crucial role in assisting Harry, aided by his friends Ron and Hermione, to finally defeat Lord Voldemort. Fans will be thrilled to have this opportunity to read the tales in full.THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD is without doubt an exciting addition to the canon of Harry Potter. They also 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 included in the book: 'The Tale of the Three Brothers', which is recounted in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; plus four more-- 'The Fountain of Fair Fortune', 'The Warlock's Hairy Heart', 'The Wizard and the Hopping Pot', and 'Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump'. Each tale has its own magical character and will variously bring delight, laughter and the thrill of mortal peril.THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD, translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, is introduced and illustrated by J. K. Rowling. Also included are notes on the stories by Professor Albus Dumbledore, which appear by generous permission of the Hogwarts Headmasters' Archive.


Review:

"The minimalist style, tone, and character construction of the tales all differ significantly from those of Rowling's novels--as they should, given the folkloric conceit--but the additional content will appeal primarily to those already steeped in the details of Harry's universe."

Horn Book, 03/01/2009

Review:

"Rowling's formidable imagination produces stories that have the sleek lines of actual folktales, which are limned with sly humor, folk morality, and a sense of the macabre, and well integrated into the wizarding world that she created in the series proper."

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, 03/01/2009
