Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling announced that she will be publishing a book of wizarding fairy tales in December.


More details

Harry Potter may have waved his wand for the last time, but JK Rowling is set to cast another spell over the bookbuying public this Christmas. The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Rowling's valediction to the world of child wizardry, is to be published for the mass market on December 4 with all proceeds to go to Rowling's charity.

Rowling originally handwrote and illustrated six copies of the book as thank-yous to people closely involved with the Harry Potter books. A seventh copy, bound in brown morocco leather and mounted with silver and semiprecious stones, was auctioned at Sotheby's last December, eventually going to online bookseller Amazon for £1.95m.

The Children's High Level Group (CHLG), the charity Rowling co-founded in 2005, will now publish the collection of five tales in trade and "collector's" editions. The trade editions, retailing for £6.99, will feature additional commentary on each fairy tale from Professor Dumbledore and an introduction by Rowling.
