Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore.

JK Rowling hits gold again!

Customer review by pomeranianlovah

5.0 stars by pomeranianlovah

This is a wonderful addition to the Harry Potter series as a sort of guide book. However it is best to read it last, because it contains several references to stories, events, tales and histories contained in the original series. It is annotated by Professor Dumbledore, and is altogether informative and witty. "He" manages to sneak in a few inside jokes, and reading all of them made me want to read all seven books all over again! There is one story there that pertains particularly to Book 7, and tells the legend of the various items of Death --- invisibility cloak, Sorcerer's stone, and Elder wand --- and harkens back to the memory of when Harry was able to come into contact with all these. JK Rowling is very good at wrapping up the few loose ends with this story book. It is meant to be savored, enjoyed, and read as a companion book to the other 7 she already published. I'm so glad that the proceeds of this book will go to a charity. You won't regret buying this book. I haven't found any adult or child who's read it who was unhappy with it. Take it with you to the doctor's office, to the salon --- it's better to read and pass the time with than any old magazine! :)

As an 'older' Harry Potter fan, I ordered this book and I must say I enjoyed it. The 'short stories' themselves might interest younger children (like most fairy tales do) but I think that Professor Dumbledore's commentary after each one might be a bit boring.

Customer review by WirSindLiebe

I liked the book, and all of the stories. The only thing that I wasn't so hot on, I wish there were more! In the Deathly Hallows they make it seem as though it's a big book, but there's actually only five stories. Still, I loved it and I think any true HP fan must have it :D
