Just heard the news: J.K. Rowling is adding another volume to the her Harry Potter offerings: The Tales of Beedle the Bard. It will be a book of 5 fairy tales, “translated” by Hermione Granger, with commentary from Albus Dumbledore and illustrations throughout.
Previously, only 7 copies of this book existed. Six were given to friends of Rowling’s, and the 7th was auctioned off to Amazon.com for $4 million. Now, the book will be made available to the masses, with the proceeds going to charity.
I’m going to be counting down the days till December 4th.
Scoff if you will, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in the Harry Potter series, and find J.K. Rowling’s books imaginative, creative, and fun. Her other Potter-related offerings (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through the Ages) were slim volumes that were surprisingly enjoyable reads, so I have high hopes for this latest addition.
