Children’s story, a childhood favorite of Aberforth Dumbledore. He and his brother Albus argued about which story their mother should read to them at bedtime. Albus preferred The Tale of the Three Brothers (TBB/TTB).

Commentary

Notes

This offhand remark by Albus in his notes about The Tale of The Three Brothers suggests that Aberforth's obsession with goats can be traced all the way back to his youth, hearing stories at his mother's knee.
