Book Drops: "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" by JK Rowling (Childrens/YA) (rated 4 stars)

by J. K. Rowling

“The Tales of Beedle the Bard” by J.K. Rowling is collection of fairy tales that young wizards and witches grew up hearing from the parents. This edition of the Tales is translated by Hermione Granger and contains commentaries from Professor Albus Dumbledore.

This is a highly entertaining read especially if you love the Harry Potter series. These are the stories referenced in the books and movies and it is great having the opportunity to read them. However, one of the tales, “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart,” is not one for small children. You can read it with your kids or to your nieces and nephews but definitely skip reading “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart.” It is a good story but not for little ears because in the end the Warlock kills the woman he wants to fall in love with. I won’t tell you how he kills her so you will go and read the book.

If you like fairy tales or the Harry Potter series, you should also add this to your collection.
