The Tales of Beedle the Bard celebrates its 4th birthday!

Today, four years ago,
J.K. Rowling once again entered the spotlight,
returning to the Harry Potter world she created,
and released The Tales of Beedle the Bard,
a book that played a key role in the
seventh and final Harry Potter book,
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"
as well as its two film adaptions.

The book, despite its short length,
was well-recieved, and recieved praise for
delivering engaging and thought-out storylines, with many critics comparing it with
the original Grimm fables, as well as Aesop's fables,
two of the most recognized fable collections.

Just a few weeks ago, it was re-released on PotterMore,
J.K. Rowling's new digital platform for all official Harry Potter content,
for sale in both e-book and audiobook formats.

Complete with all 5 fables mentioned in both the book and the two films,
The Tales of Beedle the Bard is still a must-read for anyone who loves
classic fantasy fables with subtle, ingrained morality lessons.

To celebrate Beedle the Bard's 4th birthday,
here is its most iconic fable, "The Tale of the Three Brothers".
Read on, and experience the magic.
