The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

In The Tales of Beedle the Bard, J.K. Rowling revives the essence of magic with enchanted fairytales. These fables don't always end happily, but tell important morals for all ages. They remind each of us that we all have our own weaknesses and vulnerabilities. We are more likely to choose power over what's right and seek after our own desires without realizing the consequences that follow. Each of us have a choice of being the hero/heroine. Magic can't solve every problem. Witches and wizards are quite similar to Muggles. One of the most emphasized morals and theme I certainly agree with is that immortality doesn't exist. In the end, nobody lives forever. Having love and compassion for others never ceases. In addition to these enjoyable stories, J.K. Rowling creates enjoyable charming illustrations. Plus each book is donated towards a good cause, Children's High Level Group. Muggles and Harry Potter fans will be sure to enjoy The Tales of Beedle the Bard and read it over again. 

My favourite stories listed in order. 

1. The Fountain of Fair Fortune
2. The Tale of the Three Brothers
3. The Warlock's Hairy Heart
4. The Wizard and the Hopping Pot
5. Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump
