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!

2.0 Painful Memories: "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" by J. K. Rowling
(original review, 2000)So millions of readers think these books are brilliant. It takes an odd sort of character to say, in this context, "frankly the books are rubbish".Very odd.It seems so much more natural, and logical, to say something like "I think these books are badly written ("he was sat the...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
Brilliant!I felt like this book exactly what I would hope from it. Another year at school and another year of adventures. As these kids learn magic, they learn how to mature and grow as human beings as well. Near the very end of the book, Dumbledore teaches Harry the most valuable lesson of the whol...

3.5 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - Illustrated by Jim Kay
This rating refers to the art, not the text. It is a relief to get rid of those ugly covers, but I still have some issues with Kay's illustration choices. Of course, the 20th Anniversary covers (on yet another edition) by the otherwise talented Brian Selznick leaves much to be desired. Don't even ge...

3.0 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - ReRead
Re-Read:March 26 - March 29 2018If I were a parent I might not send my kid to Hogwarts. LOL Crazy things happen at this school! However these crazy things make excellent reading or in this case listening. I haven’t read this series in a very long time and I’m floored at how much I’ve forgotten or ho...
