As every fan of the Harry Potter stories knows, the shelves of the Hogwarts Library are home to all sorts of fascinating books. There are three in particular you might have heard mentioned by certain Hogwarts students, and that you can add to your reading list too, including The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

As familiar to Hogwarts students as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are to Muggle children, Beedle's stories are a collection of popular fairy tales written for young witches and wizards. So, if you're wondering what's in store... well, you're in for a treat!

You're bound to laugh when you read about the havoc wreaked by a father's impish gift to his son in The Wizard and the Hopping Pot.

The Fountain of Fair Fortune will take you on a quest through an enchanted garden, alongside three witches and a luckless knight.

In The Warlock's Hairy Heart you'll be warned about a young warlock who is fearful of love, and turns to dark magic to avoid it at all costs.

The calamitous meeting of a foolish king, a cunning charlatan and a mischievous washerwoman unravels in Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump.

And finally, the most iconic of Beedle's stories. The Tale of the Three Brothers - with its message of humility and wisdom - will introduce you, dear reader, to the Deathly Hallows.

Each of the tales is accompanied by wise and whimsical notes from a certain Albus Dumbledore, surely everyone's favourite headmaster.

We're told these five fables have been firm favourites in wizarding households for centuries. Now it's your turn to experience these tales from the Wizarding World.
