First lines: The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Since the conclusion to this review says all I was gonna say much better, I’m not even going to bother.

This short collection would be unremarkable were it not for the body of work that lies behind it. There is an element of padding to make it a respectable length and it will barely satisfy the Potter fanatics for more than half-an-hour. Still there are some nice touches and all profits go to charity, which fits with the generous impulse of the stories.
