The Tales of Beedle the Bard

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling was an amazing book, in my opinion. Comprising of five wizarding fairytales, the book features stories about love, morality, human limits, kindness, and more. Professor Dumbledore's insightful commentary at the end of each story really added to the fairytale as a whole, and his writings often included a sprinkling of humor in it. There are several references to characters and events in the Harry Potter series, as well as references to his genius mind and his goat-obsessed brother. Although the book didn't have the same feel as a Harry Potter book always had for me, it still was a fabulous, quick read.
