This special edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone has a gorgeous new cover illustration by Kazu Kibuishi. Inside is the full text of the original novel, with decorations by Mary GrandPré.Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility.All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley — a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry’s room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn’t had a birthday party in eleven years.But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry — and anyone who reads about him — will find unforgettable.For it’s there that he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic in everything from classes to meals, but a great destiny that’s been waiting for him… if Harry can survive the encounter.

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...
If you are a fan of Harry Potter and have never listened to one of the audiobooks read by Jim Dale, check one out if you can. Rowling's writing makes for easy listening. And Jim Dale is a brilliant reader. Books one through four were bedtime listening when I was a kid. This proved to be dangerous...
No matter how many times I read this book, it will always be 5 stars.
