About this item

Most critics and readers agree that HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX marks a turning point in J. K. Rowling's enormously popular series in that the story takes on a more mature, darker tone. Now 15 years old, Harry faces the downside of being the world's most famous wizard-in-training and must adjust to changes in his relationships with friends and mentors. He also learns something quite disconcerting about his deceased parents and begins to realize how his personal demons make him vulnerable to the evil Lord Voldemort. Further complications arise when Harry grows disillusioned with the government of the magical realm and begins to question the power of the authorities at Hogwarts. A film version was made in 2007, releasing just days below the final book in the series..
This special edition of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has a gorgeous new cover illustration by Kazu Kibuishi. Inside is the full text of the original novel, with decorations by Mary GrandPré.

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it?s haunting Harry Potter?s dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

Here are just a few things on Harry?s mind:
  • A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey
  • A venomous, disgruntled house-elf
  • Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team
  • The looming terror of the end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams

?and of course, the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowling?s seven-part story, Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.

Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.

Though thick runs the plot (as well as the spine), readers will race through these pages and leave Hogwarts, like Harry, wishing only for the next train back.
