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.

        This book is fool of magical stories that you ever thought. This is a story of a boy called Harry Potter. He is an orphan. But really strong. He is sent to his aunt and uncle. The life was not good there. But as he gets to know the magical world. Where he had belong, he finds his real life. He goes to a school called hogwarts. And (I want to go to that school to!) he get to fight with the dark lord. And the story flows like that. I really liked this book. Everybody I recommend this book!

                    I like Harry Potter. But I tried to read it in 2nd grade (I was a bookworm when I was little) but didn't understand a work. So I recommend this book to kids in 3rd grade.
