The tales are interspersed with commentary by Albus Dumbledore. J.K. Rowling herself said that ''[[Literature/TheCanterburyTales The Pardoner's Tale]]'' may have provided inspiration for "The Tale of the Three Brothers."

Added DiffLines:

* LongTitle: Not the book or any of its stories, but in one of the commentaries Dumbledore quotes the very long title of an essay about necromancy as well as what is implied to be essay's entire contents, as seen under SophisticatedAsHell. The essay's title is three times as long as its contents, as necromancy is simply [[MagicAIsMagicA not a thing]] in the Potterverse.

* FreudianExcuse: Beatrix Bloxam's hatred of anything not overflowing with {{Glurge}} apparently stems from her overhearing "The Wizard's Hairy Heart" as a child and being traumatized by it. That it somehow segued into "ghastly details of the dreadfully unsavory affair of [[NoodleIncident my uncle Nobby, the local hag and a sack of Bouncing Bulbs]]" didn't help, she was in bed for a week after that.

However, she was unable to do this with "The Warlock's Hairy Heart".
