We grew up with the Harry Potter books and read from them almost every night with our two little boys. They're starting to read themselves. We started adding the illustrated copies to our collection. The words are printed large enough for them to easily go through, and the illustrations are fabulous! Size of the book makes it a little hard to read on little laps, but are very sturdy and "coffee table" worthy.
I became a little worried when the middle of the book appeared to be losing pages. It turned out to be a four page fold out of a dragon!
The book is a gift for my nephew. I am sure he will love it. My problem might seem slight but there was a 20% Target sticker on the front of the book. It was not easy to get off and took a small piece of the cover of the book off as I removed it. My suggestion is if you need to put a sticker on the books, please find a better supplier where the sticker is easy to remove. Just thought it was better saying something than keeping it to myself. I shop mostly Target because it is a great place to shop.
