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!

It's always amazing to re-read a Harry Potter book. I have so many feeling every single time and I never get bored!The illustrations are stunning and really add something to the story in my opinion. This one was creepy though, with all the spiders...
I found this second Harry Potter novel to be very similar in structure to The Philosopher's Stone. Mysteriously out of control and dangerous magical events - as opposed to run-of-the-mill benign ones - lead to Potter and his friends investigating a forbidden and secret place within Hogwarts. There t...
I took my time reading this lovely, gorgeous edition of Chamber of Secrets. I'm so excited for the later books to be in illustrated versions. They are just so stunning. The illustrator really makes it feel like a whole new story with the pictures added. No matter how many times I read these books, i...
