‘To Miss Hermione Jean Granger, I leave my copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, in the hope that she will find it entertaining and instructive.’

I love that little book (and the "big" one, too, since I had to get the collector's edition, lol)! I love how Hermione relentlessly studied it, only to find out that Ron totally knew all the stories anyway. :o)Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: That sounds so majestic, her whole name :-) I've got the book (so glad Hermione translated it!); I ordered it from the US (it's actually cheaper than in Romania) :-> I love how Dumbledore's gifts have so many functions. He really knew these three :-p And in the case of Hermione, the book may seem a given choice, but it also serves the purpose of wanting to make her understand the importance of imagination, story-telling and what goes beyond facts. Avatar Imagetealover says: One of the things I loved about Dumbledore was his gift for choosing words, when writing and when speaking, that so elegantly understated their meaning. Only those who knew him "got" what he said- he was a master at the barbed comment cleverly disguised as an observation. It was interesting when Harry had his loss of faith and belief in Dumbledore while on the run in DH. A great side story to the main plot. Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: for the first time hermione read something which ron already new :) :D LOLAvatar Imageeccentricalice says: I love Dumbledore, and also, like other people have said, I love that Ron already knew the stories while Hermione was frantically trying to translate them!Avatar Imagehonigmuffin says: Love the quote, love the stories. I imagine had Dumbledore told her this in person, he would have smiled like they shared a little secret about the book.Avatar ImageSohumdore says: VERY instructive!Avatar Image2tal says: Right under everyone's noses Dumbledore passes on pivotal elements to see them safely through together!Avatar ImageLost Northern says: gosh how i love hermione Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I love the Tales of Beedle the Bard, it shows what a fantastic story writer Jo is! @NotSlytherin i am sooooooo jealous!Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: Great quote! i love the way that dumbledore trusted hermione to use her logic and figure out the deathly hallows! :):):) love her! :DAvatar Imagetibby71 says: Really good quote :) It's amazing, that Dumbledore had everything so well considered through and through.Avatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Really forced Hermione to think outside the box. Is this the first time we learn her full name? What's Ron's middle name?Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: she kindof blew that one but they figured it out in the endAvatar ImageGiant Squid says: Such a sweet-sour part!Avatar ImagePolka Square says: i so remember this part. so magical. cant wait!Avatar Imagehermione198k says: Dumbledore was right--it was entertaining and instructive!Avatar ImageSindi says: I love the tales of beedle the bard, not really kids typical fairy tale, and thats what i like :D 38 days left! ahhhhhhh sooo close :DAvatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Bilius. Ron's middle name is Bilius. I just read that chapter. I haven't reread the book and reading it now, I find myself hanging on every character's words, especially those I know die.Avatar Imagehewy says: Heromine had a had time understanding myths, legends and simple stories. What she failed to get was that while myths are real simple tales they are really real tales told simply. As I remember she really did know this as in COS she asked Prof. Binns about the chamber and reminded him that myths have some basis in fact.Avatar Imagepotterfantasy says: interesting story, amazing how many jk can come up with <3Avatar Imageksddancer says: Cool!!!!!!Avatar ImageAlice Weasley says: this is silly, but I was so excited to see their middle names written on the page. I'm just so obsessed with these characters!!Avatar ImageSlyBones says: I woulda loved that book.
