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 liked how this author describes everything and tells you how the characters are feeling and what's going on.

                    It was funny because voldemort didn't have a nose.

                      Voldemort was so wrapped up with Dark Magic, and because he ripped his soul into several pieces and objects, his Tom Marvolo Riddle appearance changed and his former personality was sucked in and buried. He had slits for a nose, in a sense that he didn't breath in happiness and love, but destruction and lust for power.
