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 about young Harry and his journey to discover his destiny. I read this book because my BFF for life persuaded me. Trust me that I hate fighting and blood and I know that there is alot in the books, but J.K. Rowling does a perfect job with it.

      This book is so interesting. I never thought I would read it because I thought it was too long and boring but now I love it. People out there that didn't read it yet I know what you're thinking. oh it's so boring but you'll regret that like i did.

                      Harry Potter is a sad movie because Harrys dad and mom died. Also some of Harrys friends die. Harry Potter is the best book ever.
