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 was an amazing kick start to one of the best series in my world. I remember cutting myself off from the outside world for days so I could read them all. This is about an 1-year-old named Harry Potter, who survived being shot by a very strong spell. Then when he is 11 finds out he's a wizard, and goes to Hogwarts where he can escape from his cruel cousin, aunt and uncle. At Hogwarts he makes friends with a smart witch named Hermione, and a brother of 6 named Ron. While at Hogwarts, Harry and his friends unwravel many mysteries of the past. I highly reccomend this book to most ages and hope others will follow my example in loving and sharing this book everywhere they go.
