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 love all the Harry potter books. This book is about Harry, in his first year. It starts off with him finding out about wizards, and getting into Hogwarts. Then it follows him through his school year, and sees him do lots of cool things, like get into the quiditich team and fight a troll. Harry and Ron start the year hating Hermione, and think shes a snob, but then they save her from a troll and she covers for them. They become friends. Then they slowly begin to find out about the Philosiphers Stone or the Sorcerers Stone. They think that Snape is trying to steal the stone, but actually Quirrell is. The path to the Stone is covered in dangerous traps. They end up the book with them getting to the Stone, and Ron is hurt by fighting a giant chess piece, Hermione helps Harry get through a difficult puzzle and Harry ends up fighting Voldemort. Its one of the best books that i have ever read! I love it.
