As promised, Scholastic has now released video of Arthur Levine, editor of the US editions of the Harry Potter novels,  reading from his handwritten copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling. In the video which you can see here, Arthur reads from the Fountain of Fair Fortune. Enjoy!


UPDATE: We now have the video for you to enjoy here in our galleries.  You can see screencaps of Arthur reading the book here in our image galleries, along with caps of the unveiling of his personal handwritten copy that is now on display at the New York Public Library. Nice High Res images are available, including this closeup of the inside featuring illustrations by Jo.

Mr. Levine did a wonderful job reading – almost Jim Dale worthy! He seems to be a most generous man.

Sorry Emelie you kind of needed to pre order it. Speaking of which guess who has one :D Well not yet, it’s a Christmas present. I have seen it though and it is very pretty. I’ll probably sit there for a while when I first get to hold it just looking at the cover, the box and velvet bag it comes in.
It was orderd months ago.
