Book #56: The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Coming out of my Harry Potter immersion, I picked up The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling. The Tales plays a role in the seventh Harry Potter book, and after she finished the series, Rowling actually created this book, straight out of Harry Potter’s world. It’s a collection of tales much like Aesop’s fables or Grimm’s fairy tales, but what they would be like if they’d come out of the wizard community. It doesn’t contribute to the Harry Potter plot at all, but it was cute and another example of Rowling’s amazing creativity.
