Nice little read, thanks a lot for ringing!

When the book inicially came out I was more than suspicious about buying it. Suspected a cheap, carelessly done spin-off by JKR herself, just to get some money for her charity. But after reading only half of the first tale, I was charmed so much so that I ordered my very own copy from amazon. Which arrived this morning, about the same time when I posted this copy to Maresa.
JKR knows her stuff and puts thoughts even into such a small volume of her writing. Lovely. Just lovely.

It arrived a few days ago here and I immediately started reading ;-) It was, als elhamisabel said, just lovley. It is a very nice book, and I simply can see how thousands of wizards and witches were told that stories by their parents (and I'd give a lot to read the "Toadstool Tales" by Beatrix Bloxam, too). Thank you for this ring ;-)

I really enjoyed the book and the stories, but there was one major flaw: it was too short! The stories were great and I loved the footnotes from Albus Dumbledore. I would love to read more fairytales and I must get my own copy of this book, so I can read the stories again anytime.
The little illustrations were nice, too. JKR puts a lot of thought in her writing and creating.

I wrote to UbSiA to get her adress and then the book can travel again. Thank you for letting me join this wonderful little ring, PeregrinTuk!

The purchase of this book is supporting the CHLG (Children´s High Level Group). For more information about this charity organization click here.



The book arrived save today. I am really looking forward to reading this one and since it is such a nice little booklet, I should be able to fit it in quite soon!

29/03/2009: Read the book today while relaxing after my visit to the sauna. The tales were okay, but definitely not as catchy as the Harry Potter books... I will PM Catbook now so the book can continue its journey soon.

Beedle arrived today and keeps company with the german version, for what I´d also subscribed ;-)

Like I said before, I had the opportunity, to draw a direct comparison between the original and the german translation. Although the original comes off much better, I liked it not so much after all.
Actually I can´t escape the feeling, that JKR´s only aim was to earn money - well, if it serves a human purpose at least ...

I´ve already asked for the next adress.

Nice stories but nothing special. I think it was just another way for JKR to earn more money - as if she needed it!:-)

Thanks for letting me participate, PeregrinTuk!

Will travel to astridpetra on Monday.

Das Buch ist gut bei mir angekommen und wird so schnell wie möglich gelesen.
Danke für´s zusenden.

So ich habe es jetzt endlich fertig gelesen.
War eigentlich ganz spaßig. Aber irgendwie hatte ich mir ein bisschen mehr erhofft.
Das Buch macht sich jetzt auf die Reise zu Ahoi-Brause.

The beedle-tales accompaignied me on a trip to Switzerland and on my way back I already started. First story was nice :-) A pity that I don't have kids to read it to!

Updated JE will follow after complete reading enjoyment!

I have to admit that I just read the stories, and was just "flying over Dumbledore's comments" as I had the feeling that those were just a page-filler.

The stories however were quite nice and an enjoyable read.
Many thanks for the bookring :-) it will travel home soonest!

Liebe PeregrinTuk,

bitte nicht böse sein ... *schäm* habe einen gaaaanz liebe Bücherverrückte Kollegin, die auch super gerne liest, HP-Fan ist und auch englische Bücher schätzt. Ich wollte das Buch gestern nach der Arbeit zur Post bringen und erzählte ihr ganz begeistert von den Märchen. Sie war ganz interessiert und deshalb habe ich ihr das Buch (zusammen mit an Dich adressierten + frankierten Umschlag) zwischenausgeliehen. Hoffentlich ist es nicht schlimm, dass es ein paar Tage später bei Dir ankommt. Die liebe Kollegin ist sehr vorsichtig und umgänglich mit Büchern :o) und liest auch schnell ...

Tausend Dank und liebe Grüße,
Ahoi-Brause
