Prepare to be spellbound by Jim Kay's dazzling depiction of the
wizarding world and much loved characters in this full-colour
illustrated hardback edition of the nation's favourite children's
book - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Brimming with rich
detail and humour that perfectly complements J.K. Rowling's
timeless classic, Jim Kay's glorious illustrations will captivate
fans and new readers alike. When a letter arrives for unhappy but
ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that
apparently he's the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed
by a Dark Lord's curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he
somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry stumbles upon a
sinister mystery when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room
on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with
astonishing powers, which could be valuable, dangerous - or both.
An incredible adventure is about to begin!
