The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a children's fantasy book, written and illustrated by J. K. Rowling. It consists of five short stories, interspersed with fictional commentary and footnotes written by Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts. The Tales of Beedle the Bard plays a part as a fictional book in Rowling's Harry Potter series, specifically in the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. One of the five stories is included in its entirety in Deathly Hallows. Rowling originally produced just seven copies of Tales, all handwritten and illustrated by herself. It was later published for the general public on December 4, 2008, with all proceeds going to the charity Children's High Level Group.

Would recommend it to EVERYONE.


I've got it and it's great! Including special notes from Prof. Dumbledore makes it twice as better as it is!
