It's not like reading another book in the Harry Potter series, but if you love being a part of the wizarding world, here is another chance to do so. The tales are witty and add another dimension to the wizarding world.

A collection of bedtime stories with a wizard world approach. The notes give great background to the stories.
Very entertaining.

I love all things related to Harry Potter, and this quick read doesn't disappoint. Love Rowling's imagination, and this is a great companion to the Harry Potter universe. Definitely recommend to all Harry Potter fans, regardless of age!

the cover says "a wizardly classic from the world of harry potter". sorry I see it as a way to drain money out of harry potter fans. the stories are cute but not worth a book

I loved this book so much my friends and I had just finished reading the HP series together and I went and got this from the library and I was so excited! It is a great book and it has some cool stories. It gives a good background to the HP stories and it is such a great book. I loved it!!

Wanna read it soo bad, but first have to read my stupid book: Magyk {{ I highly don't recommend it}}

This is a book that is mentioned in Harry Potter and the deathly Hollows. It has many magical fairy tales that are read to young witches and wizards. With translation from Hermione, this story is now able to be read by muggles. I do not reccomend this book if you have not read the Harry Potter series.

A fairy tale book from the popular series, Harry Potter. Filled with stories like: Babbity Rabbity and her Cackling Stump, The wizard and the hopping pot & The Tale of the Three Brothers!

I loved that the book was a collection of children's bedtime stories but from the wizarding world. They were so very different from the bedtime stories I grew up with as a Muggle.

There once was a kindly old wizard who used his magic generously and wisely for the benefit of his neighbours. Rather than reveal the true source of his power, he pretended that his potions, charms and antidotes sprang ready-made from the little cauldron he called his lucky cooking pot. From miles around people came to him with their troubles and the wizard was pleased to give his pot a stir and put things right. This well-beloved wizard lived to a goodly age, then died, leaving all of his chattels to his only son. This son was of a very different disposition to his gentle father. Those who could not work magic were, to the son’s mind, worthless, and he had often quarrelled with his father’s habit of dispensing magical aid to their neighbours.
