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 have read all 7 books and I have loved them with my whole heart but I must say that in a series the first book must be good to keep the readers on it and Ms. Rowling went above and beyond with that expectation! I give it 5 *s and if anyone agrees please follow!

            All of my favorite books because they can get to you in a certain way that nothing else can and J.K. Rowling is a VERYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY clever woman. I am 9 right now but in two years I am expecting a letter!!!!!!!! And if someone should ever insult Harry Potter they won't be hurt but they will need to get these books in front of them right now and make sure they are thinking correctly. Anyone who agrees please like and follow and then I will do the same to you!!!!!!

                    Sorcerer's Stone Is Okay,Chamber Of Secrets Is Awesome,Prisoner Of Azkerban Is Boring And Goblet Of Fire Is Amazing! Overall It's A Great Series!
