A 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!

I hadn’t realized it until I started listening but I’ve really missed this world of magic and mystery. It’s been quite some time since I’ve read about Harry and...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Philosopher´s Stone
It´s simply not possible to give this book less than 5 stars. The story is magical and Stephen Fry´s narration is perfection.

5.0 #79 - Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling (Slytherin Edition)
No need to write another review about this book, I have read it a million times (Goodreads says 4, but it is way more than that). I just wanted to mention this edition because it is a cool one. Well, if you love collecting books (and I guess many of you here do) it's great, other than that, there ar...

5.0 Re-reading, Listening Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
I love Harry Potter and I love the stories. I will watch the movies whenever they show up on tv and I decided that I wanted to read the story in Spanish (trying to learn the language) and I am trying to knit or crochet and listen to Jim Dale reading the story. He makes the story come alive. I had ba...
