Description



About the Book



Originally published in a slightly different form in the United Kingdom by Bloomsbury in 1997 under title: Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone.



Book Synopsis



The beloved first book of the Harry Potter series, now fully illustrated by award-winning artist Jim Kay.

For the first time, J.K. Rowling's beloved Harry Potter books will be presented in lavishly illustrated full-color editions. Award-winning artist Jim Kay has created over 100 stunning illustrations, making this deluxe format a perfect gift for a child being introduced to the series and for dedicated fans.Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility.All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley - a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry's room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in eleven years.But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry - and anyone who reads about him - will find unforgettable.



Review Quotes



Praise for the original publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's StoneA wonderful first novel. Much like Roald Dahl, J. K. Rowling has a gift for keeping the emotions, fears, and triumphs of her characters on a human scale, even while the supernatural is popping out all over. The book is full of wonderful, sly humor [and] the characters are impressively three-dimensional (occasionally, four-dimensional!) and move along seamlessly through the narrative. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is as funny, moving and impressive as the story behind its writing. Like Harry Potter, [J. K. Rowling] has wizardry inside, and has soared beyond her modest Muggle surroundings to achieve something quite special. -- The New York Times Book ReviewA charming, imaginative, magical confection of a novel. . . . A glorious debut, a book of wonderful comic pleasures and dizzying imaginative flights. There is no cause to doubt Rowling's abilities and promise, and every reason to expect great things, truly great things, from her in the future. -- The Boston Sunday GlobeYou don't have to be a wizard or a kid to appreciate the spell cast by Harry Potter. -- USA TodayThe story delights and the writing gives you goosebumps, the good kind. -- Chicago Tribune*Readers are in for a delightful romp with this award-winning debut from a British author who dances in the footsteps of P. L. Travers and Roald Dahl. Rowling leaves the door wide open for a sequel; bedazzled readers will surely clamor for one. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

I can't wait to read these to my 7 year old. I originally planned to start reading them when she was 11 (like Harry) with the originals, but she knows how much I love them and has been asking. I think this will be a great way to get her started. They're beautifully illustrated I know she will love the pictures!

I saw other reviewers mention the ugly 20% off stickers on the cover. Mine copies came with those as well. They are a bit annoying, but I managed to peel them off cleanly and you can't tell they were there. I can't wait to read these with my kid!
