Harry Potter – JK Rowling

Can you hear me screaming?

As expected, the illustrations brought this book to a whole new level. I legitimately want to buy another copy, solely to take it apart and frame it.

Each page is just bursting with new life. Honestly, how could you not love such beautiful images?

Hogwarts, Hogwarts. Hoggy Hoggy warty warts.

I think at this point, everyone and their great-great-grandmother has heard of this book.

Harry Potter, orphaned before he was one, was sent to live with his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon. He was always a bit of an odd child – much to his family’s dismay.

Things just… happened …around him. Like when he was running from bullies and jumped to the school roof. Or when he got an atrocious haircut (courtesy of Aunt Petunia) and all of his hair grew back in a single night.

On his eleventh birthday, a letter comes to him and a whole new world opens in front of his eyes.

In short – I LOVED THIS ONE. I thought I loved the Harry Potter books when I first read them, but when I bought the illustrated version…well, that love instantly quadrupled.

The fully illustrated Philosopher’s Stone still has all the wonder and amazement as the boy-turned-wizard embarks on a harrowing 7-book-adventure and the illustrations bring a whole new dimension.

Seriously, I can’t emphasize enough how much I love this book. Just look at these images – they’re magnificent:

Ahh! Just look at sad, tiny Harry. Don’t worry kid – life will get better!

Not only are these full-color, high quality images but there are so many of them.

Often, illustrated books have a picture here or there but not HP. There’s pages and pages of pictures like this – and often the pages without full-sized images will have a small illustrations here and there between the large ones.

Words cannot express how highly I recommend this one. If you haven’t read HP recently…I strongly urge you to check out this book.
