A special new edition in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, with a stunning new cover illustration by Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick.

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

It's not just the upcoming O.W.L. exams; a new teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a venomous, disgruntled house-elf; or even the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Now Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.

Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.

This gorgeous new edition in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone features a newly designed cover illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick, as well as the beloved original interior decorations by Mary GrandPré.

          After the scene in the graveyard last year Harry tells everyone that Voldemort is back. The thing is no one believes him. Everyone goes against him except for a few people. Things get worse when Harry starts having bad dreams of a door and his scar starts hurting a lot more. This was another one of my favorite Harry Potter books. I really enjoyed it and it reminded me that your friends will always be with you.

                  I've read the entire Harry potter series already but it is so good i,m reading it again. Just the right blend of humor romance and action/adventure.

                    Love it so far. It's so cool. It's a good book but takes a long time to read. I'm only on page 600-something out of 800-something pages. My friend has read it and she likes it.

                      This book was great because it showed the struggles that Harry started to have during his teenage years and it is the base for the next two books in the series. It is a very emotional book (especially at the end) and I would definitely recommend it!
