Here's a little peek at one of the handwritten and illustrated copies of The Tales of Beetle the Bard that Jo Rowling sold off for charity. This one was purchased by Amazon for almost 4 million!

Hugs,

Looks absolutely gorgeous, doesn't it?!

According to Amazon's website, they plan to take the book round schools and libraries to show to school children.  I think that's a really lovely idea.  And JKR is planning to give the money to charity, which is amazing of her.

As a custom title for me, useful I would like it to be. Something descriptive, about me I give: I am "The Limerick Lady."
