Rowling would still put this kind of whimsical energy and effort into her Harry Potter related projects instead of solely doing it for a cash grab. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Ally from Shitty cover though A thoroughly wonderful read but it's a shame they changed the cover to something so tacky and juvenile.
Would recommend seeking out the original cover.

Summary of Tales Contents. This tale is about a kind and generous old wizard who uses his magic to come to the aid of his non-magical neighbors and the problems that they would bring to him. Suddenly he hears loud noises coming from the kitchen. He notices that the surface of the cauldron is covered in warts.
However, none of his spells work. When he goes up to bed the hopping pot follows him upstairs, leading to a sleepless night for the son due to the loud banging of the pop hopping up and down on the floor all night long.
The next morning while having breakfast the son hears another knock on the door. An old man on the front doorstep lets the son know that his donkey is missing and that, without the donkey, he cannot bring his items to sell at the market and that his family will go hungry as a result.
The son again tries using magic to rid himself of the pot or to quiet the noises coming from it. Again, he is unsuccessful. That evening there is a third knock on the door. Even though no more villagers came by the house to seek help from the son, the pot continued to take on the symptoms of all of their ills such as choking and retching, crying like a baby, whining like a dog, and spewing out bad cheese and sour milk as well as a plague of hungry slugs.
The son continued to be unable to sleep or eat because of all the noises emanating from the pot and magic continued to be ineffective in trying to silence the pot. Finally, the son had had enough. He ran out of the house with the pot hopping behind him, calling out to all of his neighbors to bring their troubles to him so that he could help them. As he runs through the streets he uses his magic to heal the sickness and sorrow of the villagers, and as he does so the symptoms emanating from the pot begin to disappear one by one.
When the son turns to the pot after curing the ills of the village, the pot burps out the single slipper that his father had left him and allows the son to put it on the brass foot.
The story ends by saying that from that day forward the son helped out his fellow villagers as his father had done before him, lest the pot cast off the slipper and begin to hop once more.
In this story, there is a fountain where once per year, one person may bathe to have his or her problems answered. This is how three witches meet. The first witch, Asha, suffers from an incurable disease. The second, Altheda, endures poverty and powerlessness due to a robbery.
The third, Amata, is distraught after being left by her beloved. The three witches decide to try to reach the fountain together but along the way, a knight also joins them. On their path to the fountain, they face three challenges. At the fountain, Asha collapses from exhaustion. To save her, Altheda brews an invigorating potion that also cures Asha of her disease and need of the fountain.
Altheda realises that her skills are a means to earn money, so she also no longer needs the fountain.
Amata realises that washing away her regret for her lover removed her need as well. Everyone gets an answer to his or her problem, unaware that the fountain held no magical power at all. To do this he needs to solve two problems: he must capture and imprison all of the sorcerers in the kingdom and he has to learn magic. The charlatan proves himself with a few simple tricks and begins to ask for jewellery and money to continue teaching.
This causes the king to demand the charlatan join him in a public demonstration of magic and warns that the charlatan will be beheaded if anyone laughs.
The charlatan later witnesses Babbitty performing magic in her house. He threatens to expose her if she does not assist him. She agrees to hide and help the demonstration.
During the performance, the brigade captain asks the king to bring his dead hound back to life. The charlatan exposes Babbitty, accusing her of blocking the spells. Babbitty flees into a forest and disappears at the base of an old tree. As the crowd departs, the stump starts cackling and makes the charlatan confess. The stump cackles again, demanding the king never hurt a wizard again, and build a statue of Babbitty on the stump to remind him of his foolishness.
The king agrees and heads back to the palace. They make a magical bridge over the river.
He pretends to be impressed by them and grants each a wish as a reward. Afterwards, the brothers go their separate ways. The eldest brother, bragging about his powerful wand, is robbed of it and murdered while he is asleep.
The middle brother uses his ability to bring back the woman he loved, who died before he could marry her. However, she is not fully alive and is full of sorrow. He kills himself to join her.
