THE WORLD THIS WEEK: New Potter tales to go on sale

Great news for Potter fans — a book JK Rowling hand wrote only seven copies of is going to be published for everyone. The author gave six copies of The Tales of Beedle the Bard to friends and one was auctioned for charity. But it’s been announced — on Harry Potter and JK Rowling’s birthday — that the wizarding fairy tales will go on sale in December.

All money made from the book will be given to charity. Rowling said she knew Potter fans were disappointed there was only one copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard made public, so was delighted it was going on sale.
