This special edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has a gorgeous new cover illustration by Kazu Kibuishi. Inside is the full text of the original novel, with decorations by Mary GrandPré.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!

As always, it was Harry Potter...
I have never been a big Harry Potter fan and I haven´t even read book six and seven yet. But the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry might actually change this. He is a genius, at least when it comes to the narration of these books (I guess he is a genius in every other aspect as well, but lets just ...
For more reviews, check out my blog Craft-CycleThis book is absolutely beautiful. I have read the original book a handful of times and loved it. I did not think that I could possibly love it more. But then the illustrated edition came out and it is spectacular. The same amazing story that captured m...
Wow.... This story really threw me off. From suspecting Draco Malfoy to the main character Harry Potter... Every evidence just throws me off!! It is only until the end where this book shocks you with the main problem!
My Harry Potter reread continues (though I started it last year . . . oops) with The Chamber of Secrets, one of my personal favorites in the series. I think the general opinion is this is one of the lesser Potter novels, but I think it’s a lot of fun. Strange happenings are going on in Harry, Ron,...
