THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD
Don't tell my 7-year old but I got him and our family the "final chapter" in the Harry Potter series for x-mas, The Tales of Beedle The Bard. Check out how awesome this book is! I haven't read it yet as I'm saving it for reading with the kid. The five stories in the book are The Fountain Of Fair Fortune, The Warlock's Hairy Heart, The Tale Of The Three Brothers, The Wizard And The Hopping Pot, and Babbitty Rabbitty And Her Cackling Stump. The book itself comes in a huge leather faux-tome with beautifully stamped/engraved cover.
J.K. Rowling originally made 7 hand-written versions with her original artwork. She is giving 6 away and auctioned off the 7th for charity for £2 million.
