    “No man or woman alive, magical or not, has ever escaped some form of injury, whether physical, mental, or emotional. To hurt is as human as to breathe.”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 magical as the ones I grew up with. But I also never thought that a writer could have such an impact on my life.Find more of my books on Instagram

    Apparently I'm getting this for Christmas. ROCK ON....Having not read this yet, my favorite part was that on the day it showed up on Amazon it immediately placed above Breaking Dawn for most preorders ever received (currently in system, obvy). It was like, okay, everyone who says Smeyer is the new JKR. Smackdown.Finally read, years later: Loved it.

    I felt very warm and fuzzy reading new JKR. How can I not love an alleged children's writer who mentions murder, mutilation, cannibalism, adultery, and bestiality all within the span of 110 (ultra-short) pages? The stories are on the meh side, but Dumbledore's commentaries showed a smart, literary eye that reminded me briefly of Pale Fire. I'm all, "Hey, JK, you did your thang." Be that as it may, I'm a bit offended by the Dumbledore's anti-anti-Muggle bias. I see nothing wrong with witches and wizards not wanting to associate with Muggles. I hate Muggles, they are the worst! And I have Muggle heritage myself (but don't tell anyone I said that, EEW EEW EEW!) so you know I can't be magicist. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I think, "Go back to where you came from, Mudblood!" So I did -- but the staff at New York Presbyterian wouldn't take me back.

    I actually started this a few nights ago and would read one story each night but completely forgot to add it to my currently reading shelf! I absolutely loved these stories, as well as Dumbledore's commentary. I learned some new things, and connected a few others. They were such a phenomenal addition to the books, especially Deathly Hallows. I will forever love The Tale of the Three Brothers, and it will always be a classic tale for me. I can't believe how much effort J.K. Rowling put into every single aspect of her series, just to make it that much more wonderful. I love how she wove magic into five completely different stories of her own making. This takes so much time, effort, and devotion and I will forever be grateful for all the love that she puts into her books. I will continue to reread these lovely tales whenever I need a little magic in my life. Hopefully in the future I will also read these to my children along with the Harry Potter series. Every addition to this amazing series brings me so much joy and I can't say enough good things. I highly recommend giving these a read! You won't be disappointed! She gave it her all and I could never give this less than 5 stars!

    This didn’t work at all for me. It felt too gimmicky. It felt like it was trying too hard to be part of wizarding universe rather than actually being part of it. Dumbledore’s notes were here in an attempt to guide the reader though in actual fact they just made the experience much worse. They felt more patronising than anything really. That being said, it’s a fun attempt to create a foundation for Rowling’s already vast and complex fantasy world. But I don’t think it needs it. If you look at Tolkien andThe Silmarillion,that book actually added something to middle earth. It builds upon the groundwork and explores the full history of the writing. It gives you so much more detail. Granted, this is an altogether different creature, but I don’t think it adds much to the wizarding world. There are glimpses of this book through the full Harry Potter series, and we hear about its nature, but I don’t think seeing it here changes much.If anything, my perceptions of the book are lessoned because it just didn’t live up to expectations. It’s supposed to be this legendary book containing dark stories perhaps a bit similar to Grimm’s fairy tales in the real world. Generations and generations of wizards have read it and it is always raved about by the characters. It’s supposed to be something fantastic, and it’s not. It’s a book of very, very, basic stories that do not have the ability to stand on their own feet. It cannot be read in isolation from the main work and it is terribly short lacking any sense of substance or literary merit. All in all, it’s a book written for the strongest of Harry Potter fans. I love the series too, but because of this it doesn’t mean this book is automatically going to receive my admiration. It’s a good idea, though it is very poorly executed.

    Reading a Hogwarts' library's book with the fables taken from ancient times in it along with the notes and guidance of Dumbledore himself, is a magical feeling beyond explanation.With every J.K.Rowling book, before reading it, I instruct my mind that you are holding a brilliant collection in your hand, and so it turns out to be.The five legendary tales in The Tales of Beedle the Bard, took me to the time I used to hear tales from my grandparents when I was a kid and they were with me. Most intriguing part about the stories were that unlike the heroines in the fairy tales, the real world witches had to do their homework in time, so they can acquire the magic, power and mastery they are searching for. It is their hardship and their tenderness that led them to gain what they wished for.The stories are not just stories. If you go by Dumbledore's notes and analysis, they'll relate you to Harry Potter books more and how they were being taught.It was a constant jump from fables to rational thinking that has been described by Dumbledore. A great book to have in a Potterhead's collection, with the stories that every child who wants to perform magic must know.I just want to add this image here though it might seem not related :

    If you know me, then you may know that I've tried to read fairytales from the Grimm Brothers, Hans Christian Anderson, and from the collection of Arabian Nights and have been unable to finish any of them because I honestly didn't like the stories and thought they were overly preachy and odd.This, however, will be the book of fairytales that I read to my future children. I fucking loved it. The stories were a mix of wonder and darkness, of hope and love, and the extra notes from both Dumbledore and Jo were the perfect addition to this wonderful little book. I only wish there were more stories! What a gem!

    Now, I happened to be at a Wal-Mart at 11:53 pm on December third, the day before this book was to be released. Upon my arrival to the inside of the store, I saw a table decorated with a single blue balloon, and a plastic tablecloth. Taped across the front of the small buffet table was a sign that said "Join us at 12:01 for Tales of Beedle the Bard!" Needless to say, I squealed aloud with delight, and my best friend blushed with embarrassment at being seen in public with a squealing Harry Potter fan. I could hardly believe that I had forgotten the realease date for the storybook Harry Potter fans everywhere were waiting for! Of course, I searched frantically for my wallet, but it was nowhere to be found, lost in the abyss that is my purse. As I began to walk away with my head hung low, Kristen, the dearest friend I've ever known, then took me by the hand and led me back to the table. She told me that she would buy me the book as an early Christmas present, but I had to promise to love it. And that very night, after I had finished the book, my promise was kept, and I loved it.

    Zuerst einmal muss ich sagen, dass mir die Neuauflage aus dem Carlsenverlag rein optisch schon mal super gut gefällt. Der Inhalt des Buches besteht aus 5 Märchen, an deren Ende jeweils ein Kommentar von Albus Dumbledore folgt. Am besten hat mir natürlich das Märchen von den drei Brüdern gefallen, welches man ja auch schon aus den Filmen kennt (hat es noch jemand außer mir in Hermines Stimme gelesen?!) Für alle Potterheads einfach ein Must-read, welches auch einfach sehr hübsch aufgemacht ist und im Bücherregal nicht fehlen darf!

    What a great and cute addition to the Harry Potter series! Fairy tales from the wizarding worlds which very much look like our fairy tales, but which are unique as well. I especially loved the tales about the hairy heart and the three brothers, and now I'm quite eager to watch the upcoming movie as well :) If you love fairy tales and if you love Harry Potter, I'm pretty sure you're going to love these tales as well!

    I'm having a hard time deciding which is my favorite tale, but I'd lean towards The Fountain of Fair Fortune, with the The Warlock's Hairy Heart coming in a close second (if only it had been executed a little better!).Keeping in mind that these are wizarding fairy tales, with commentary by Dumbledore and translated by Hermione (oh MAN, wouldn't it be awesome to get into a crazy discussion about Hermione as a biased translator? Dumbledore's comments are obviously 100% biased) - the book is really quite cute. It shouldn't take you much more than 30 minutes to read it but I was expecting a short read(and honestly, my #1 complaint is the binding -t he book just feels awkward, and I am dreading when the spine is obviously cracked open).Spoilers start here:Tale #1: The Wizard and the Hopping Pot: The most obvious morality tale in the book. A young man inherits his father's cauldron and his father's requests for aid from needy (but humble & worthy!) Muggle neighbors, resists with an attitude, and is taught a lesson in charity. I found Dumbledore's notes more interesting than the tale itself.Tale #2: The Fountain of Fair Fortune: Almost a Wizard of Oz-type story; a Muggle Knight and 3 witches quest for their greatest wish to be granted at the Fountain of Fair Fortune, but end up solving their problems on the journey. I really think JKR could have expanded this out into much more of a short story, although it does make sense in the fable/fairy tale format. Really quite cute, and the "happiest" of the bunch.Tale #3: The Wizard's Hairy Heart: Obviously the darkest tale; a man turns to the Dark Arts and cuts himself off from enjoying life by literally taking his beating heart out of his chest so he will never be hurt. Dumbledore's notes sort of point towards the ZOMG TERRIBLE HORCRUX IS TERRIBLE idea, but never outright says, so this Tom Riddle kid TOTALLY ate this one up at the Muggle orphanage--OH WAIT, HE TOTALLY DIDN'T.Tale #4: Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump: A really stupid Muggle king wants to wipe out witches and wizards, gets scammed by a con man, but his dishwasher is a real witch and not only stops the persecution but even gets a gold statue through her own cunning. I think this was my least favorite out of the 5.Tale #5: The Tale of the Three Brothers: We know this one from Deathly Hallows, but 3 brothers run into Death, get the Elder Wand, the resurrection stone thing, and the Invisibility Cloak. Brothers 1 and 2 are totally dumb and die pretty quickly, but Brother 3 knows meeting Death is inevitable, but hides and lives into old age. Again, Dumbledore's notes are very vague, and full of, NOW, THIS WAND/STONE BUSINESS IS TOTALLY FOLKLORE (also, can I just say how much the term Deathstick amuses me to no end??) BUT INVISIBILITY CLOAKS RUUUULE. Overall, it's sort of cool to think how these tales might have played into the upbringing of some of the characters. The Weasley kids probably heard all of these 10 million times.Oh, AND! I forgot, my favorite part is when "Dumbledore" goes into as close as he can get into a rant about censorship concerning the content of the tales (the Malfoys across the ages are big into banning books). It's even more funny considering HP's history, and the fact that JKR was nice enough to let Dumbledore give the gentle smackdown.

    A sense of completion."The fairy tales of the wizarding world for the muggle readers."The tales are what the children of the wizards and witches have grown up reading. I loved the connection this book establishes with the main frame of the story. The tale of three brothers and death no doubt was heard and was fabulous.What made the book immersing was the moral giving stories that fills the young magical mind with the essence of good and bad. The teachings and controversies drawn from the interpretations are no different than the muggle world.Books are banned, content is censored! Humor laden analogy is a JKR signature. My favorite part has to be the message scribbled by Dumbledore himself at the end of every story.The hopping pot instills you with the ideology that you must help others if you can. The message is loud and clear - face the consequences should you go immoral.Laced with emotions and selfless love are the stories of three women who seek redemption.Though,Babbity Rabbity takes the cake with her wit smacked aura.Verdict : Future schedule - reading this to my children pretending ourselves to be James and Lily Potter.

    Sa "Pripovestima barda Bidla" susreli smo se u sedmoj knjizi serijala i potom upoznali sa "Pričom o Tri brata". Ova priča je u čarobnjačkom svetu toliko jaka i važna da je iz nje proistekla najveća znana legenda - onaj čarobnjak ili veštica koji uspe da objedini sve tri relikvije smrti postaće nepobediv, a relikvije su ništa drugo do predmeti koje je Smrt dala braći na poklon nakon što su je prevarili.Odmah moram napomenuti komentare koje ostavlja Albus Dambldor nakon svake od ovih priča, dajući im novu dimenziju i pobliže nam predstavljajući ne samo čarobnjački svet, već i način na koji funkcioniše svaka osoba, bila ona normalac ili čarobnjak. Za mene su ti komentari možda i najbolji deo knjige, uz simpatičnu opasku da nijedna veštica zapravo nije pokušala da objedini sve tri relikvije smrti.Pored pomenute "Priče o Tri brata", tu su još četiri priče: "Čarobnjak i skakućući lonac", "Vrelo velike sreće", "Veščevo kosmato srce" i "Baka-zekonja i njen Cerekajući panj". Svaka je dragocena i poučna, a ujedno propraćena već pomenutim komentarima. Volela bih da izdvojim "Vrelo velike sreće" jer je kroz avanturu tri veštice i normalskog viteza odlično prikazana činjenica da smo mi sami tvorci svoje sreće i da nema te magije koja nam može pomoći ukoliko ne pomognemo mi sami sebi.Više nego toplu preporuku bih dala i audio verziji ovih priča koje su svojevremeno na mene ostavile izuzetan utisak.

    Not much to this book. Rowling uses double spacing, huge margins and mediocre pencil art (that she drew) to stretch out what should have been some short stories published on the internet, a magazine, or saved for inclusion in a bigger book. The tales are all very concise, you can tell she tries hard to make them deep and classical, but they fall short, and most fail to draw you in or make you interested. After each story is a boring (almost arrogant) review by Dumbledore, who tries to convince you how great and meaningful they are. The longest story in the book, about the brothers involved with the Deathly Hallows, is just repeated word for word from the last book in the Harry Potter series. You will glean a few tiny tidbits of information you never knew about some of the unimportant characters from the series (such as Sir Nicholas the Ghost), but otherwise this 'book' will be forgotten. A shame since I loved the main series.

    As some people know, it took me one hell of a long time to become a fan of Harry Potter. But once I did, I was completely sucked into that world. So when The Tales of Beedle the Bard came out, I was such a huge Potterhead that I had no choice but to buy this enormous special edition. I've included a number of photographs in this review to give you a good impression of just how special this special edition actually is.The actual book has small iron works which make it quite heavy and just add to the overall atmosphere.The tales actually are tales - not encyclopedic information as in the two previous school books. As fans of the series know, the tales (one especially) are quite important in the end. There are five tales in total, as well as Dumbledore's thoughts on all of them, an introduction and a "personal message" at the end.All the tales are fantastically magical and quirky but also carry a sense of foreboding and are heavy with meaning. Great writing in all of them, that sucks the reader right back into this fantastic magical world.

    Strangely enough, I loved this one a lot more than all the other short stories by Rowling. Perhaps it's because they're actual stories with characters and even moral underpinnings, or perhaps this collection just hit the spot. :)I enjoyed Albus's voice here, but in the end, I think I simply enjoyed the tales for themselves. Little dark fairy tales. :) I have nothing bad to say about little dark fairy tales. :)

    The most beautiful fun you can have is when you know more about a once loved book that you couldn't departure easily.Unlike many authors, JKR knew better than to abandon her hard work of creating such world, so she spoils her readers with more every chance she gets and as a reader and basically a girl who grew up with Harry Potter books as her only friends, I am grateful for what she presents.One of my favourite tales is of course The Tale of the Three Brothers as I always hear Hermione's voice while reading it, but being introduced to the rest of the tales was fantastic. I lovedThe Fountain of Fair Fortuneand The Wizard and the Hopping Pot, the concept and the meaning behind these two were so beautiful. The highlight of this short book was Dumbeldore's notes, they left me in awe and laughing.

    Που λέτε, αυτα τα παραμύθια, αν μη τι άλλο, αποδεικνύουν για ακομη μια φορά το ταλέντο της Rowling. Ενθουσιάστηκα καθώς αντιλήφθηκα σε ποσο βάθος εχει δουλέψει η συγγραφέας τον μαγικό κόσμο της: Έφτασε στο σημείο να μας παρουσιάσει παραμύθια για μικρούς μάγους, να χτίσει ιστορικό υπόβαθρο πισω απο αυτά, να προσθέσει σχόλια απο τον μέγιστο Albus Dumbledore και να με κανει να αναρωτηθώ " Μα μήπως κάπου εκεί εξω υπαρχει οντως αυτός ο μαγικός κοσμος και η Rowling ειναι ο σύνδεσμος μας μ' αυτόν;"Τα ίδια τα παραμύθια, όσο απλά κι αν φαίνονται, επιτελούν τον διδακτικό τους ρόλο και αποτελούν μαθήματα ζωής: Ανοχη στη διαφορετικότητα, το τρωτό της ανθρώπινης ύπαρξης, το μεγαλείο και η αξία της αγάπης και αλλα τόσα..Ειλικρινα να βγάζω το καπέλο μου στην Rowling και δηλώνω οτι θα διαβάσω ο,τι κυκλοφορεί και φέρει την υπογραφή της!

    What a beautiful, special book. Jk never ceases to amaze me with her ability to immerse us all into her vast Wizarding World. I truly enjoyed this book so much, as a huge Potterhead myself, I felt the magic in me for this one hour it took me to finish it. Furthermore, Dumbledore's comments added more to the fantasy, to the imagination, they added a background to the five stories that were told. These five stories, so different from our own Muggle fairytales but also so alike, convey lots of important messages. I would totally recommend this book to a Harry Potter, or anyone to be honest, this books is truly a journey.

    Magic causes as much trouble as it cures.Indeed true! The most striking part of this one – Notes from Prof. Dumbledore The difference between Muggle and wizard fairytales is the remarkable one. The interwoven miraculous perceptions in-between both the worlds justifying the importance of each along with paradoxical messages to be followed – not to be drawn or indulged or exploit the power bestowed upon.Each tale withstands its own ground and particular significance along with the beautiful illustrations. Let me end with the most insightful quote: Tamper with the deepest mysteries – the source of life, the essence of self – only if prepared for consequences of the most extreme and dangerous kind. P.S.: HP fan?! Who isn’t? I recommend it for all. After all we all need to learn to greet Death as an old friend!
