Potter Spin-off Coming

I know one book that has already been added to at least a few holiday wish lists: The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a post-Harry Potter title from J.K. Rowling that is a Potter spin-off of sorts. The Associated Press reported that the Children’s High Level Group hopes to raise $8 million through sales of the “five wizarding tales referred to in Rowling’s Potter saga.” “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” will be published for charity December 4 by Scholastic.

Here’s a short publisher-produced summary:

“The Tales of Beedle the Bard,” a Wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers’ attention in the book known as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger’s new translation from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an introduction, notes, and illustrations by J. K. Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore. Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: “The Wizard and the Hopping Pot,” “The Fountain of Fair Fortune,” “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart,” “Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump,” and of course, “The Tale of the Three Brothers.”
