The Tales of BeedleThe Bard - J. K. Rowling
The Tales of Beedle The Bard is a short collection of fairy tales written from a wizard's perspective. It's enhanced by commentary from Professor Dumbledore. In fact, the commentary exceeds the length of the stories in most cases. It falls short of a Harry Potter tale, but I enjoyed the read. It's like the scent of a favorite food compared to eating the meal. You enjoy it, but it leaves you wanting more. This would be a good Christmas present for a young reader. The proceeds go to a worthy charity. Recommended.
