A story from The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a wizarding world collection of fairy tales, is a crucial plot driver in the seventh and final Harry Potter book. Rowling made seven copies of The Tales of Beedle the Bard in 2007 and gave six to those who she deemed “most closely connected to the Harry Potter books.”
