Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone : Illustrated Edition Hardback
Illustrated by Jim Kay
Celebrate 20 years of Harry Potter magic! Prepare to be spellbound by Jim Kay's dazzling depiction of the wizarding world and much loved characters in this full-colour illustrated hardback edition of the nation's favourite children's book - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Brimming with rich detail and humour that perfectly complements J.K.
Rowling's timeless classic, Jim Kay's glorious illustrations will captivate fans and new readers alike.
When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he's the last to know.
His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord's curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived.
Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry stumbles upon a sinister mystery when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor.
Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers, which could be valuable, dangerous - or both.
An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Review by ecataldi
I re-read this book roughly, every two or three years. This re-reading was even better than most because I got the new beautifully illustrated edition. It's stunning and the pictures add soo much to the story. Worth every penny! I sincerely hope they illustrate all seven books. Take my money already!
