Tales of Beedle the Bard


The Tales of Beedle the Bard have been favourite reading in wizarding households for centuries. Full of magic and trickery, these tales both entertain and instruct, and remain as captivating to young wizards today as they were when Beedle first put quill to parchment in the 15th century. These narrative gems are accompanied by explanatory notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore. His illuminating thoughts are sure to make Babbitty Rabbitty as familiar to Muggles as Snow White.

This edition of wizarding fairy tales pairs the original text with jacket art by Jonny Duddle and illustrations by Tomislav Tomic. The Tales of Beedle the Bard is published in aid of Lumos, an international children's charity founded by J.K Rowling dedicated to ending the institutionalisation of children.

Loved by fans worldwide, J.K. Rowling 's Harry Potter series has sold over 450 million copies, been translated into 79 languages, and made into 8 blockbuster films. She has written three companion volumes in aid of charity: Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (in aid of Comic Relief) and The Tales of Beedle the Bard (in aid of Lumos), as well as a film script inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
