“No man or woman alive, magical or not, has ever escaped some form of injury, whether physical, mental, or emotional. To hurt is as human as to breathe.”

Review in English:

Who hasn’t read Harry Potter? Come on, us millennials are growing up with it.  Well, if you haven’t and only watch the movies, you’re missing the brilliance of these books, Mister. You’re missing the exquisite writings of J.K. Rowling, which so complicated and full of intrigues. Anyway, if you remember Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, there is a part that has mentioned this book particularly. Hermione obtained this book by Dumbledore’s will, and it contains the most crucial story that we all know as the origin of ‘Deathly Hallows’. Haha!

So, anyway, this book came out to be real. J.K. Rowling wrote this and published it, along with Dumbledore’s comments on every story in it. So basically, The Tales of Beedle The Bard is a children’s book which tells several magic lullaby stories (if the kid loves horror, I guess…).

So to you who love Harry Potter and magic, you ought to read this so you’ll understand what the magic community reads to their children is! There are 7 stories in total, each has moral values to deliver, and plus, there is inside comments from Dumbledore. Therefore, you will know if the story has caused controversy, or if there is one that has hidden meaning behind it. Your children will LOVE for you to read this to them, I believe (I know I will definitely do that)! It’s always interesting to dive your nose deep into the poppity-bobbling pot! *wink*

Resensi dalam Bahasa:

Angkat tangan bagi yang belum membaca buku Harry Potter!

Well, Harry Potter memang terkenal dengan filmnya, tapi jelas asal muasal demam Harry Potter di seluruh dunia adalah dari bukunya, yang ditulis dengan brilian oleh J.K. Rowling. Sudah membaca atau belum, kamu pasti ingat ceritanya. Nah, sekarang, adakah yang masih ingat dengan Harry Potter dan Relikui Kematian (buku ke-7)? Kalau kalian mampu mengingatnya dengan baik, buku ini sebenarnya berkali-kali disebutkan dalam cerita!

Buku The Tales of Beedle The Bard  (Kisah-Kisah Beedle Si Juru Cerita) adalah buku yang diwariskan kepada Hermione oleh Dumbledore, setelah kematiannya. Buku ini mengandung 7 dongeng singkat yang biasa dibacakan ibu kepada anaknya sebelum tidur, khususnya untuk masyarakat sihir. Salah satu dongeng dalam buku ini lah yang kemudian menjadi asal muasal ‘Relikui Kematian’ yang terkenal dan menjadi inti cerita dari penutup kisah Harry Potter!

Selain dongeng-dongeng ringan dengan nilai moral yang sangat cocok untuk dibacakan ke anak-anak, dari setiap cerita J.K. Rowling menyelipkan komentar-komentar Dumbledore yang kritis dan penuh penjelasan mengenai apa maksud tersembunyi dari cerita tsb. Jadi, buku ini cocok untuk semua umur dan jelas wajib-baca bagi penggemar Harry Potter!
