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.

    A great first installment to a great book series, the beginning is both funny and serious. It is jam-packed with drama, characters, and an overarching story.

        I decided to read this book when my parents played the audio book in the car. I was instantly hooked. Have read around 4 times. One of the worst mistakes someone can make in the book world is not reading the Harry Potter series

          The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling is the best! I love all the mystery and details in each book. I think that this would be a great book if you like things about wizards and witches and magical things!

                    I really liked this book. It is probably my favorite book in the whole series. It is about a teenage kid named Harry Potter. He goes through a lot of adventures in the book.
