The only part of this book that I enjoyed was the story of the "Three Brothers". Which of course means nothing because that story was already told within the Harry Potter books (series). The so-called translations by Hermonie and Dumbledor are ridiculous and I eventually started to skip over these sections. The stories weren't entertaining and even though the cover of this book is pretty, it isn't enough to save the rating on this one. Sorry, not sorry!

A fun little book about wizard fairy tales with notes from Albus Dumbledore examining the meaning behind them. A quick read of more Harry Potter goodness.

The stories themselves, and even more so, the commentary by Albus Dumbledore, were both entertaining and uplifting as well as highly thought-provoking. A very good use of commentary by a character as if in an academic setting, with metaphors dealing with racism and prejudice that go far beyond this small and very readable book itself.
