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 don't like this book, because I don't seem it interesting to me than Percy Jackson. I'm sorry Mr. Rowling, but I do must say I hate this book.

            The 5-star rating does not do this book justice. It is so amazing that I cant put it in words. I am a hardcore Harry Potter fan and this book is lifechanging. Read each book in order, and watch the movies in this order: Read the book and watch the corresponding movie. My favorite book is the Order of the Pheonix. The best movies, however, are the 2 Deathly Hallows (part 1 and part 2), the graphics are out of this world! I started reading these in the summer after 2nd grade so that is a good time to start reading. Make sure that you are comfortable with reading chapter books. All of the books in the series are awesome, and by reading these you will have an awesome life long experience! Enjoy reading the books! Welcome to the Wizarding World!
