Marvelous Middle-Grade Monday

     It's Monday, and that means it's time for us to tell you all about another wonderful Middle-Grade Book.  This meme was started by Ms. Shannon and she's gotten a lot of other bloggers to join in.  This is a great meme for discovering new books that are just for Middle-Graders.  Make sure you visit Ms. Shannon's blog for the list of all the bloggers.

Emiline's Marvelous Middle-Grade Monday Book Pick is
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling

     I love The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a wonderful collection of wizarding tales by J.K. Rowling. The stories are like fairy tales for wizards.  I love it because you can connect to the wizarding world.  It's like everyone's coming out of the book.  It just feels so real.  
     I love that the book has a straight connection to The Deathly Hallows; because now, not only can you hear great wizarding tales, you actually feel like Dumbledore's back with you because of his commentary.  And everyone knew Hermione was going to publish a book eventually!  She translated it from ancient runes!
     I liked that J.K. Rowling wrote another Harry Potter book.  I love her books.  If you're sad the series had to end then read the real ending to the story with The Tales of Beedle the Bard.


  1. I also like the book on magical beasts; it's fun to pretend that I am a contemporary of Harry's and can read the same books he did!

  2. I can't believe I haven't heard of this! I'm not a HUGE Potter fan, but I am interested in looking this one up. Thanks!
