J.K. Rowling has written a new book, but it doesn’t feature Harry Potter and you probably won’t be able to buy it.
“The Tales of Beedle the Bard” is an illustrated collection of magical fairy tales based on the fictional book given to Hermione by Dumbledore in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” It contains five stories that were illustrated and handwritten by Rowling.
Don’t look for the book in your neighborhood bookstore, however. Only seven copies were printed. Six copies were given away as gifts and the seventh is going to be auctioned off for a children’s charity.
The starting price for the book’s auction will be $62,000.
