Simple Description
This is a collection of wizarding fairy tales with commentary by Albus Dumbledore. That's about all I'm going to say since, well, I'm assuming most of you have already read the book, plan to read it, or at least know what it's about.

Why did I read this book?
How could I possibly pass this one up? Haha! I realize that it's not another Harry Potter book, but it still kinda goes with it.

What I liked most:
I thought the stories were interesting. I like fairy tales, so to me this was just a different kind of fairy tale.

Was there something I didn't like?
I wish it was longer. Haha! I read it in a couple of hours.

Do I recommend the book?
I do. I'm not sure I liked it as much as others have, but I still enjoyed it. I thought the stories were fun. I thought the commentary was interesting. I'm glad I have a copy for my collection.

I got this in December for my birthday but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. So many books, so very little time!
