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.

      Harry had lived with The Dursleys for as long as he could remember. They haven't ever treated him fairly in comparison to his cousin Dudley. Then he had found out that he was a wizard and that the Dursley's had been keeping it from him. Now he attended Hogwarts, the school of witchcraft and Wizardry. But deep under the school there was a stone that would make you immortal, and you know who was after it. Now Harry was prepare ( after a lot of snooping ) to stop him.

                    This book is GREAT!!!!👍👍 😂 It's about Harry Potter , he finds out that he is a wizard, by Hagrid the Hogwarts gamekeeper. On the Hogwarts express he meets his two people, Hermione granger and Ron Weasly. Hermione is very smart and is ALWAYS correcting them both. Ron is sometimes smart, but not as much as Hermione. 😂 They get to Hogwarts castle and then it starts happening, well in the middle but I'm just "fast forwarding" .😂😂😂 So basically a three headed dog, fluffy, is guarding the stone,. Hermione has to play flute to keep fluffy asleep and then the three friends and up with the stone. And ya follow me if u LOVE Harry potter!!!! BTW, my fav quote from Hermione granger is: No no no! You're going to poke someone's eye out! Besides, you're saying it wrong: it's levOsia not levoisar! 😂😂 If you're wondering when I read this I was eight and I'm now eleven and I'm on the sixth book! Woo hoo!😋😋
