Collection: Beedlemania

As we all know, Dumbledore’s will included an important bequest: “To Miss Hermione Jean Granger, I leave my copy of ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’, in the hope that she will find it entertaining and instructive”.
 
“You’ve never heard of ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’?” asked Ron of Hermione in the final Harry Potter book, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’. But Hermione was born of Muggle parents and so would not have imbibed, with mother’s milk, the fables of this Yorkshire storyteller from the 15th century.
 
‘The Wizard and the Hopping Pot’; ‘The Fountain of Fair Fortune’; ‘The Warlock’s Hairy Heart’; ‘Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump’ and ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’ have much in common with traditional fairy stories. They contain messages to unpick, and lessons to ponder over. Virtue is rewarded and evil reaps its own reward.  But can fairy tales resonate in a world of everyday magic?  I’ll leave you to find out.
