[good reads] the tales of beedle the bard

August 13, 2017

I was so incredibly sad when I finished the Harry Potter series (both times that I’ve read the entire set of seven books). You can imagine my excitement when I found out that she was going to publish some of the textbooks and other books mentioned within the Harry Potter series. One of these was The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Within the magical world that Harry Potter lived, The Tales of Beedle the Bard was a collection of children’s fairy tales that taught children certain morals that pertain to the magical world, like not abusing magic and using magic to help others. The neatest thing about the way J.K. Rowling wrote this book is that it’s write as though Professor Dumbledore had written commentary about each of the stories so not only as readers do we get to read the stories that young wizards and warlocks learn, we also get Professor Dumbledore’s thoughts about each of the stories, the reason why each of them were or were not included in the “nicer” versions that were printed later, and how young ones in the magical world were supposed to act in accordance to each of the story morals. I just love how this book lets Potter fans like me delve slightly deeper into the magical world. Besides, it’s important I learn these fairy tales because I might get my Hogwarts letter soon!
