For the first time, J.K. Rowling's beloved Harry Potter books will be presented in lavishly illustrated full-color editions. Kate Greenaway-award-winning artist Jim Kay has created over 100 stunning illustrations, making this deluxe format a perfect gift as much for a child being introduced to the series, as for the dedicated fan.

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.

I thought my teenagers were busying themselves with something else in the back seat when my 13-y...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Illustrated by Jim Kay
Yes, I am actually going to review Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. (While quietly lamenting that Bloomsbury thought Americans wouldn’t be smart enough to recognise what a philosopher is.) I’ve only read the series once, and it was after each book had been released, so it’s been a long ...

2.0 Quaint Britishness: "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" by J. K. Rowling
(original review, 1999)One of the main things that Harry Potter has taught me is that people who dismiss the series out of hand and people who laud it as the best thing since sliced bread are equally annoying. People who dismiss it tend to be those who are overly eager to demonstrate how terribly ma...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (illustrated edition) ★★★★★
I don’t have anything to add about this book – the story, the characters, the complex world that JK Rowling created – that I didn’t say on my last re-read. I love it as much now as I did when I first picked up the audiocassettes from a bargain bin, skeptical but figuring that I ought to see what the...

4.5 Still loving this book, even if it wasn't my favorite of the series.
I really loved my reread of this book, its the only book that I have ever reread. So from here out, it will be like I am reading the series for the first time because it's been along time, since I read the rest in the series, since around 16 or 17 years Now I really love how Harry meet Ron, his fa...
