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.

4.0 Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone
The review below was based on my first read of the Harry Potter books, ages ago and in Dutch. Updated reviews will follow after a reread (in English) I plan to do. I took me years to start reading Harry Potter. I think the main reason was my parents didn't like fantasy, and I used to think this wo...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
This was such a treat! This is my third time reading the book, and this time around I chose to listen to the audiobook. I've heard the Jim Dale version--so actually this probably be my fourth time round. I managed to track down the UK audiobook version and Stephen Fry was an absolute delight to l...

This took me longer than expected this time around! Not too surprising considering this is by far my most read Potter-book, so it's sort of lost the hook for me. Very enjoyable still.
