The Tales of Beedle the Bard - Fine Christmas Gift for Harry Potter Fans

Dec 05, 2008
British author JK Rowling has presented all Harry Potter fans with a really exciting Christmas gift - a new book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, the most highly anticipated title of the year.

The book was officially launched at the National Library of Scotland on December 4. A group of Edinburgh school children were invited to attend a tea party hosted by the author.

The bookshops in Scotland opened their doors at midnight to welcome Harry Potter fans eager to buy a copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

The book contains 128 pages. It is famous among Harry Potter fans as the volume left by Hogwart's headmaster Albus Dumbledore to Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final Potter book.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard consists of five stories: The Tale of the Three Brothers, The Fountain of Fair Fortune, The Warlock's Hairy Heart, The Wizard and the Hopping Pot and Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump. The stories helped Harry Potter to destroy Voldemort.

Net proceeds from the sale of The Tales of Beedle the Bard will be donated to The Children's High Level Group (CHLG), the charity co-founded by the author in 2005. The charity acts to support the rights of vulnerable children in Eastern Europe.

As JK Rowling says, she hopes the book will become a fine Christmas gift to all Harry Potter enthusiasts, along with offering the necessary support to The Children's Voice campaign.

Actually, the book was not meant for mass-market release in the first place. In 2007, JK Rowling handwrote and personally illustrated six copies to be presented as unique gifts for those people who were most closely related to the Harry Potter books over the last 17 years. A seventh copy of the book was given to the charity, and acquired by Amazon for 3.98 million dollars at Sotheby's auction held in London.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard is also published by Amazon as 100,000 collector's editions, to be available along with replica gemstones, new illustrations and metal skull, corners and clasp. The price of the book is 100 dollars, a part of which is also donated to support the CHLG.

It is remarkable that the final Harry Potter book, published in July 2007, became the fastest-selling book ever. The seven Harry Potter books have sold more than 400 million copies worldwide.

What I heard is, the movie was dropped by Universal and Fox, but it's still<a href="http://syizmpbepl.com"> lknoiog</a> for new studio to back the plan; another plan is Microsoft may finance the whole movie all by itself. And Peter Jackson is still going to produce it.... Let's see.Though I'm not very thrilled. You know, most based-on-game movies just sucks.

Well she's writing a potilical fairytale' which is aimed for children even younger then the Harry Potter audience. She's not rushing though. She's also making an encyclopedia of all the Harry Potter terms and spells. People ask her why she doesn't write more about the Mauraders, but she said there would be no suspence, as people know they survive (until later)She says she'll keep on writing, but no more magic. She was originally going to write an adult book as well as the potilical fairytale book, but in the end she decided not to finish it. This also happened whilst writing Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.
