About the Book



Originally published in a slightly different form in the United Kingdom by Bloomsbury in 1998.



Book Synopsis



Award-winning artist Jim Kay illustrates year two of Harry Potter's adventures at Hogwarts, in a stunning, gift-ready format.

The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone -- or something -- starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself?



Review Quotes



Seeing Jim Kay's illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry Potter's world, and I feel honored and grateful that he has lent his talent to it. -- J.K. Rowling

Not many pictures. Not sure what the point of this book is if it isn't to have fun pictures to go along with the story.

Purchased this new version of illustrated edition of Harry Potter hard covered books for my grandson for Christmas and when I received the books, I was so pleased with this set. The pages are larger, more colorful and the illustrations is detailed and well done. If you’re in the fence about purchasing them, let me push you over and tell you it’ll be a great purchase with no doubts!

These books are so beautiful! Love their illustrations. My 7yo loves them and wanted another for their birthday. … Yes, they have stickers on them and they are the easiest thing to get off without leaving any trace of it even being there.

Beautiful But Covered with Target Stickers that left residue on the dust jacket. Buy elsewhere or in person to make sure you don't get stickers on the cover.

THEY PUT STICKERS ON THE FRONT COVER

2 out of 5 stars
mad customer - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I love these books, they're beautiful, a stunning work of art. I'm planning to collect these and read them to my future children and grandchildren but Target put these ugly 20% off STICKERS right on the FRONT COVER of these beautiful hard cover illustrated editions. I don't know how to remove these without damaging the covers. I would rather have paid full price for all of these than get a discount and these marred covers.
