    More Information: J. K. Rowling. The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger. [London]: Children's High Level Group in association with Bloomsbury, [2008]. First UK trade edition, first printing. Signed by the author on half-title page. Twelvemo. 108 pages plus publisher's note. Text illustrations throughout by J. K. Rowling. Publisher's pictorial laminated boards illustrated by the author. A fine copy of a book rarely found signed. "I can only think of three authors who are genuine creators of new fairytales: Joan Aiken, Tolkien and E. Nesbit. Rowling is the fourth, blending the comic with the gorgeously grotesque and adding her own delicate line drawings. All of these tales - funny, sinister, wise and captivating - could have come new-minted from the Brothers Grimm" (Amanda Craig, Book Review of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, The Times, December 4, 2008).
