I was completely devastated when I finished the final Harry Potter Book as it meant I had no more Potter books to look forward to. The remaining 2 movies helped lessen the blow a little bit, but what I’ve really been hankering for is a new book by Rowling. This winter, I was temporarily comforted by the release of The Tales Of Beedle The Bard. If you haven’t checked it out yet, don’t get too excited. This is not a new Potter book. It’s also not a novel, but rather a collection of short stories with some footnotes by Dumbledore, that clocks in at around 100 pages (with large print and pictures).

All that being said, it’s an excellent book. Rowling has the great ability to open up one’s imagination and create worlds where anything is possible. So, it only made sense for her to write a book of fairy tales. Just like the stories we grew up with as kids, The Tales Of Beedle The Bard will excite your imagination, teach you life lessons, and leave you yearning for more.

If you’re in “Post-Potter Depression” like me, you won’t find total relief with The Tales Of Beedle the Bard. You will however find a great book that proves to be a small distraction. My personal favorite is “The Wizard And The Hopping Pot” which is about a grumpy wizard that turns his back to those in need and gets a healthy dose of karma. I recommend this book for not only Potter fans, but for young children as well. It would make a great gift to any young child, or would be a great book to read to your kids before bedtime.
