JK Rowling hits gold again!

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! :)

Since I have read all the Harry Potter books I wanted to read the childhood stories the Wesltys had read to their kids. Fun stuff!

Newest Harry Potter book

I really liked it for what it was, a collection of stories not unlike our fairy tales, stories that teach a life lesson. Each one has "notes" by Dumbledore that explain it, give history, perspectives from the "wizarding world", etc. Not nearly as good as the Harry Potter novels, but they do enrich the Harry Potter experience. Cute - I would recommend it.

Dissappointing from Rowling

I loved the Harry Potter series, so naturally I was interested in reading this new J.K. Rowling book. Even more interesting was the fact that it was tied to the Harry Potter series. However, I was very disappointed by the book. I felt it was not written anywhere nearly as well as the Harry Potter books and had this been the first book of Rowling's that I'd read, I would not have wanted to read another. The only things that I felt tied this book the the H.P. series was Rowling's description that the book was "translated from ancient ruins" by Hermonie Granger with a "commentary" provided by Dumbledore, and that one or two of the tales were included in the H.P. series. However, the familiar tales did not provide any new information not already in the H.P. books. To me, it was no more than a collection of less than interesting "wizard world" fairy tales with a section at the end of each story explaining how you should interpret the tale ("Dumbledore's commentary"). Very, very disappointing. I'm looking forward to something better from Rowling in the future!

If you like the Harry Potter series, then you have to buy this book. It's like a backstage pass on the views of Albus and Hermoine. Can't get any better. J.K. did it again.
