We Couldn’t Be More Excited About the Illustrated ‘Tales of Beedle the Bard’

Originally published in 2008, J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard is getting a gorgeous illustrated revamp in October of this year. Originally mentioned in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, this new edition will feature full-color illustrations alongside the original stories. 

 

The Tales of Beedle the Bard include five short stories, “The Wizard in the Hopping Pot,” “The Fortune of Fair Fortune,” “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart,” “Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Crackling Stump,” and most notably, “The Tale of the Three Brothers,” which was featured in both the Deathly Hallows book and movie.

 

Illustrator Chris Riddell has recently posted on his Instagram some previews of his upcoming work in the form of giant, colorful prints at an undisclosed book fair.
