The Tales of Beedle the Bard
I dialed up Amazon today and lo and behold:
The Tales of Beedle the Bard Collector's edition will be released on
December 4, 2008.
Only seven copies of the original book were created and the single copy available to the public was auctioned at Southeby's for £1,950,000. The winner was Amazon.
The cost for the collector's edition will be $100 and the net proceeds from the Collector's Edition and the Standard Edition support the Children's High Level Group. The standard edition will cost considerably less at $7.79.
This will probably not satisfy Hank Green's desire for a Book 8 but now we all get to read The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
