I am so excited to have in my hands the newest edition of JK Rowling’s Tales of Beedle the Bard, beautifully, and dare I say, magically illustrated by Chris Riddell.
I met Chris Riddell a year ago at an event in Haworth, and I asked him about the rumours he was illustrating the Tales. He took out an A4 sheet of paper and gave me a sneak peek of The Bard himself!! My dear friend Esther can lay testament to the fact I actually SQUEALED!
This edition of Tales of Beedle the Bard is just glorious. A must have for the Potterheads out there, but more than that…a must for lovers of magical tales, brought to life in ethereal and other worldy illustrations by the master of visual story telling Chris Riddell.
