The book contains a collection of five stories, classics to the wizarding world that many children have heard from a young age. Stories that young witches and wizards have grown up with; however, Beedle's tales tell us the original versions before they are edited for little modern ears. These, in and of themselves, are entertaining and interesting to read, to try to figure out the morals of the stories. Nevertheless, the most amusing part of this book is not the tales. After each of the fables, Dumbledore writes his own personal notes on each. His wit and wisdom that was shared through the Harry Potter series remains in this collection, particularly for the most important of the shorts, The Tale of the Three Brothers. Applause to Rowling once again!
All in all, the perfect ending to a great 2008!
