Trivia: The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Posted by at 6:24 am in Harry Potter, Trivia | Permalink

Beedle_130Since the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie release was pushed back to July 17th, it’s been a while since we Harry Potter fans have had anything new to go gaga over. But this lull in Pottermania should have given you all a chance to get super-familiar with your copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

So, today I have a trivia question from this book of wizarding fairy tales:

What’s the name of Beatrix Bloxam’s book? What is in her book?

Leave a comment with your answer. Good luck guessing!

    The book that Beatrix Bloxam wrote was the “Toadstool Tales”. It has everything story in the book “The Tales of Beetle the Bard” except for the Warlock’s Hairy Heart. All the stories have been modified and have been rewritten to sound like this:(for the 3 brothers story) Once apon a time, there were 3 brothers. Then they found an invisibility clock, a cool wand, and a stone that could make wonderful things happen. Then they had a wonderful life. The End

    Her book is called ‘Toadstool Tales’ and it has her altered versions of Beedle’s tales coz she thinks his stories are inappropriate for children.

    The name of Beatrix Bloxam’s book is ‘The Toadstool Tales’. It contains some of Beedle the Bard’s tales, rewritten in a child-friendly way.

    Beatrix Bloxam’s book is named Toadstool Tales and in it is rewriten stories of Tales of Beedle the Bard, for example she rewrote “The Wizard and the Hopping Pot” but rewrote it in a bad way that I would NEVER have dared to read what she wrote!!!! [ That was a mouthful! ]

    Oh! I LOVE TTOBTB! Anyway, Beatrix Bloxam wrote “The Toadstool Tales,” a book with rewritten stories, many of them Beedle’s. However, it did not include “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart.”
    And from the excerpt I read in Beedle the Bard, I don’t want to read it.
    Defy gravity!

    Oh yeah..! Wasn’t it called like, “Toadstool Tales”? It had a retelling of the story “The wizard and the hopping pot”, I think.
