Beetle the Bard Read Along

Yes, spoilers abound in the Guardian piece Live Blog: Reading Beedle the Bard, but it's an oh so entertaining, chapter-by-chapter analysis. Here's an excerpt.

11:24am: On to the fourth tale, Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump. The best title so far.

Brief précis: foolish king, wants to be the only one with magic, forms a brigade of witch-hunters. He's been a bit silly though, because he needs an instructor and they're all too scared to come out of hiding, so he ends up with "a cunning charlatan with no magical power".

I'm not sure this is going to end happily.

Go on and read it. You know you want the skinny on the tales!
