The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
Having since my first read of Rowling's Tales read the Brothers Grimm's original fairy tales I had a slightly different take on Rowling's this time around. I think she manages quite aptly to produce some stories that have the feel of ancient fairy tales with a cultural setting and context. I loved Dumbledore's comments and background info and overall it's just a great addition to the HP Universe.
