    No man or woman alive, magical or not, has ever escaped some form of injury, whether physical, mental or emotional To hurt is as human as to breathe The first time I heard of The Tales of Beedle the Bard was of course in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows And I laughed out loud, crying and giggling for minutes when I first heard of Babbity Rabbity and Her Cackling Stump.My favourite tale is The Fountain of Fair Fortune It just warms my heart every single time I read it It s quite the opposite of The Warlock s Hairy Heart, but in a way, I still love the utter disgust and shock it produces.Dumbledore s notes are pretty spectacular as well I love how he shamelessly tells Lucius Malfoy off in his letter about banning a tale from the Hogwarts Library And by Merlin s Beard is Aberforth so fascinated by goats It s always going to remain a mystery to me.This is an amazing, original collection of wondrous and beautiful, cruel and magical tales If someone can create fairytales that feel like they could be in Grimm s collection, then it s definitely J K Rowling I never thought it possible that someone could write a fairytale, that feels as old and as magical as the ones I grew up with But I also never thought that a writer could have such an impact on my life.Find of my books on Instagram

    English The Tales of Beedle the Bard Italiano There was once a kindly old wizard who used his magic generously and wisely for the benefit of his neighbours Directly from the Hogwarts Library, with commentaries by Albus Silente, here we have a collection of stories for young witch or wizard, the equivalent of muggle fables for muggle kids namely un magic children And muggle Arianna, my daughter, cannot but appreciate the umpteenth bedtime reading on the Rowling s universe In fact, she listens carefully, wide eyed, then she giggles, then she gets serious, again she laughs heartily, and so on In short the perfect goodnight. The Wizard and the Hopping Pot tale deserves a special mention It is a quite criticised story by the magical community, due to its bottom line in favour of the muggles A father teach a lesson to his son, preaching love and tolerance for un magic people, the muggles, that is to say ourselves, the readers.And I, muggle for many generations, am so jaelous of all the un muggles Damn Vote 7,5 C era una volta un vecchio mago gentile che adoperava la magia con generosit e saggezza a beneficio dei suoi vicini Direttamente dalla Biblioteca di Hogwarts, commentate nientemeno che dal Professor Silente, arriva una raccolta di storie per giovani maghi e streghe, l equivalente delle fiabe babbane per bimbi babbani ossia per bambini non magici E la babbana Arianna, mia figlia, non pu non apprezzare questa ennesima lettura serale sull universo narrativo della Rowling E difatti ascolta con attenzione, occhi sgranati, poi sghignazza, poi si fa seria, poi di nuovo ride di cuore, e cos via La buonanotte perfetta.Menzione speciale merita la fiaba Il mago e il pentolone salterino , racconto piuttosto criticato dalla comunit magica per via della morale pro babbana in esso contenuta In questa fiaba infatti si predica, attraverso una lezione che impartisce un padre al proprio figlio, a e tolleranza verso il popolo non magico, i babbani, vale a dire noi, i lettori.Ed io, babbano da svariate generazioni, provo invidia per tutti i non babbani Mannaggia Voto 7,5

    I felt very warm and fuzzy reading new JKR How can I not love an alleged children s writer who mentions murder, mutilation, cannibalism, adultery, and bestiality all within the span of 110 ultra short pages The stories are on the meh side, but Dumbledore s commentaries showed a smart, literary eye that reminded me briefly of Pale Fire I m all, Hey, JK, you did your thang Be that as it may, I m a bit offended by the Dumbledore s anti anti Muggle bias I see nothing wrong with witches and wizards not wanting to associate with Muggles I hate Muggles, they are the worst And I have Muggle heritage myself but don t tell anyone I said that, EEW EEW EEW so you know I can t be magicist Sometimes I look in the mirror and I think, Go back to where you came from, Mudblood So I did but the staff at New York Presbyterian wouldn t take me back.

    I actually started this a few nights ago and would read one story each night but completely forgot to add it to my currently reading shelf I absolutely loved these stories, as well as Dumbledore s commentary I learned some new things, and connected a few others They were such a phenomenal addition to the books, especially Deathly Hallows I will forever love The Tale of the Three Brothers, and it will always be a classic tale for me I can t believe how much effort J.K Rowling put into every single aspect of her series, just to make it that much wonderful I love how she wove magic into five completely different stories of her own making This takes so much time, effort, and devotion and I will forever be grateful for all the love that she puts into her books I will continue to reread these lovely tales whenever I need a little magic in my life Hopefully in the future I will also read these to my children along with the Harry Potter series Every addition to this amazing series brings me so much joy and I can t say enough good things I highly recommend giving these a read You won t be disappointed She gave it her all and I could never give this less than 5 stars

    This didn t work at all for me It felt too gimmicky It felt like it was trying too hard to be part of wizarding universe rather than actually being part of it Dumbledore s notes were here in an attempt to guide the reader though in actual fact they just made the experience much worse They felt patronising than anything really That being said, it s a fun attempt to create a foundation for Rowling s already vast and complex fantasy world But I don t think it needs it If you look at Tolkien and The Silmarillion, that book actually added something to middle earth It builds upon the groundwork and explores the full history of the writing It gives you so much detail Granted, this is an altogether different creature, but I don t think it adds much to the wizarding world There are glimpses of this book through the full Harry Potter series, and we hear about its nature, but I don t think seeing it here changes much.If anything, my perceptions of the book are lessoned because it just didn t live up to expectations It s supposed to be this legendary book containing dark stories perhaps a bit similar to Grimm s fairy tales in the real world Generations and generations of wizards have read it and it is always raved about by the characters It s supposed to be something fantastic, and it s not It s a book of very, very, basic stories that do not have the ability to stand on their own feet It cannot be read in isolation from the main work and it is terribly short lacking any sense of substance or literary merit All in all, it s a book written for the strongest of Harry Potter fans I love the series too, but because of this it doesn t mean this book is automatically going to receive my admiration It s a good idea, though it is very poorly executed.
