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.

      It's a really great book. Once this book was written everybody else wanted to write fantasy too. If you want to find out for yourself whether the book was good or not, read it!

        It is not hard to imagine a world with no cloaks, no pet owls, no magic and full of Muggles. It is not hard to imagine at all; it is the world we live in. It is the world the Dursleys lived in, the world before Harry Potter. When baby Harry arrived on their doorstep after his parents died, the Dursley's favorite sport was making Harry miserable. An outcast in school and at home, Harry believes it was meant to be this way. As Harry nears his eleventh birthday, mysterious letters start arriving. The letters all come from the same place: a place called Hogwarts. The Dursleys leave their home, dragging Harry with them, to get away from the letters. They live for only a night in a shack in on the ocean when a giant knocks down the door. "Sorry about that," he apologizes after making his entry. To be continued.....read the book!

          Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is an amazing book. I like it because it is funny and has lots of action. Harry is just a young boy that lost his mother and father to a terrible wizard named Voldemort. If you read the book you will find out more!!!

                  This book got me hocked on this series. I loved everything about it. All of the descriptions of how Mr.Drusley felt the day the Potters died. I defiantly recommend this book.
