The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Okay, for starters, I'm not sure I can help but love anything by J.K. Rowling.
This is a great series of fairy tales. I have the collector's edition version, so mine came in an awesome box and the book itself has a scull on the cover and one of those latch things that are on diaries. And some prints. That I'm thinking about framing.
The stories are actually really rather good. They don't feel overly J.K. Rowling-ish...as in, when I read them, I didn't hear Harry's voice reading them. They could stand alone without the Harry Potter series, although I really don't know why you should bother. (Or more accurately, not bother.)
It was also fun that the stories were followed by commentary by Professor Dumbledore and footnotes by J.K. Rowling.
