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 this book. It's the first book in a long series about a boy who receives a mysterious letter telling him that he is a wizard and is invited to join Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. This book is one of my all-time favorites, and I highly recommend it.

        This is an AMAZING book for action seekers. Harry Potter is an 11-year-old boy whose parents were killed by Lord Voldemort when Harry was only a baby. He was then sent to live with his one only relatives, the Dursleys. They treat Harry horribly. However, one day, mysterious letters addressed to Harry come, but Uncle Vernon won't let Harry read them. Whoever is sending the letters seems determined to reach out to Harry, because they keep on sending letters. One day, Hagrid, the groundskeeper at Hogwarts, barges in and tells Harry that he's a wizard. Harry then goes to Hogwarts and starts his life as a wizard. However, Lord Voldemort is still after him. Using his wits and courage, Harry must get the Sorcerer's Stone before Lord Voldemort does.
