The Tales of Beedle the Bard




Apparently J.K. Rowling has released another Wizarding World book!


In "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" there was mention of a fairy tale book that all wizard born children (like Ron Weasley) have heard. "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" helped Harry and the others to...well, that is another story.


Anyway, she hand wrote seven copies. Six of them she gave to various lucky peeps who helped with the series. The seventh, though, is what is causing the commotion...


She auctioned it off. It was bought for $4 million! I have heard rumors that Amazon.com bought it. All of the mney will be donated to a charity that, "campaigns for children's rights across Europe, especially in Eastern Europe, where many children and teenagers grow up in institutions." Hmmm...


I think that these stories should be published SOMEWHERE for the world to see!!!


2 HOURS LATER: Hurrah!!! Check out Amazon.com!!!



Thanks to Anankas Diary for the extraordinary news!

Really??
Darn.I already did.
But never mind,I don't mind spoilers so much. =)
I read the New York Post(or was it the guardian? whatever) review,before deathly hallows came out and the mostest hugest spoilers chucked in my face.
