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.
The beloved first book of the Harry Potter series, now lavishly illustrated by award-winning artist Jim Kay. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
This is a beautiful illustrated version of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”. I was absolutely thrilled with the experience. The book has wonderful pictures on every page and I think it would perfect for reading with kids before bed or just for curling up on a wintery day. The story is unabridged so never you fear that you’ll be missing anything with the experience. I found the reading experience extremely relaxing and would highly recommend this as a gift to any Harry Potter lovers.
For my full review of the book generally, please go here.
Rating: 5 stars!
