The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a collection of stories written for young wizards & witches. These stories have been popular bedtime reading for centuries, with the result that the Hopping Pot and the Fountain of Fair Fortune are as familiar to many of the students at Hogwarts as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are to Muggle children. Beedle's stories strongly resemble Muggle fairy tales in many aspects. but, however, there is one obvious difference. In Muggle fairy tales, magic tends to lie at the roots of the hero or heroine's troubles-the wicked witch has the poisoned apple, puts the princess to sleep for a hundred years, or turned the prince into a terrifying beast-Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast basically in Muggle fairy tales. While Beedle's tales have heros and heroines that preform magic themselves to solve trouble. Beedle's stories have helped generations of many Wizarding parents to explain the painful fact of life to their young children: that magic causes as much trouble as it cures.
