JK Rowling’s ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’ looks like it will be her next best-seller. Due out on 4 December 2008, the book will be available in a standard edition for £6.99 (currently £3.99 from Amazon) and a collector’s edition for £50. It features the five fairy tales mentioned in the final Harry Potter book, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’.
