about

J. K. (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in Gloucestershire, U. K. on July 31, 1965. Rowling attended Tutshill Primary and then went on to Wyedean Comprehensive where she was made Head Girl in her final year. She received a degree in French from Exeter University. She later took some teaching classes at Moray House Teacher Training College and a teacher-training course in Manchester, England. This extensive education created a perfect foundation to spark the Harry Potter series that Rowling is renowned for. After college, Rowling moved to London to work for Amnesty International, where she researched human rights abuses in Francophone Africa, and worked as a bilingual secretary. In 1992, Rowling quit office work to move to Portugal and teach English as a Second Language. There she met and married her husband, a Portuguese TV journalist. But the marriage dissolved soon after the birth of their daughter. It was after her stint teaching in Portugal that Rowling began to write the premise for Harry Potter. She returned to Britain and settled in Edinburgh to be near her sister, and attempted to at least finish her book, before looking for another teaching job. Rowling was working as a French teacher when her book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in June of 1997 and was an overnight sensation. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone won the British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year, was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award, and received a Commended citation in the Carnegie Medal awards. She also received 8,000 pounds from the Scottish Arts Council, which contributed to the finishing touches on The Chamber of Secrets. Rowling continued on to win the Smarties Book Prize three years in a row, the only author ever to do so. At the Bologna Book Fair, Arthur Levine from Scholastic Books, bought the American rights to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the unprecedented amount of $105,000.00. The book was retitled Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for it's American release, and proceeded to top the Best Seller's lists for children's and adult books. The American edition won Best of the Year in the School Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Parenting Magazine and the Cooperative Children's Book Center. It was also noted as an ALA Notable Children's Book as well as Number One on the Top Ten of ALA's Best Books for Young Adults. The Harry Potter Series consists of seven books, one for each year of the main character's attendance at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. All of the books in the series have been made into successful movies. She has also written Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliantly illustrated and magical I have the entire 7 books obviously. I'm a book nerd and obsessed with reading. If I have a collection and then come across a special edition I don't bother BUT for Harry Potter that rule does not apply lol. Anyways when I bought this and new that every October they will release a new one for each book fully illustrated I was so happy and excited. This book is gorgeous the illustrations truly bring the book to light. I mean JK Rowling writing already does that but this ... this is that and MORE. It's stunning and magical and MUST for a Potterhead collector like me!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Edition! This was a reread of the illustrated edition and even after countless rereads, this story will always remain magical and hold a special place in my heart. If I had to credit one series that started my love of reading, it would be the Harry Potter series. I know I definitely read books prior to reading them but when I look back in my memory it’s the first book that I truly loved. There isn’t much to say about the story that people don’t know, so I will just say that it’s a timeless classic. No matter what age, I will be able to come back and reread any book of the Harry Potter series and feel like I’m home. I really like the addition of this illustrated series because it adds a visual element to the story. I personally never had a problem imagining all of the wonders of this magical world and story but I know some people need illustrations to encourage their imaginations. Additionally, Jim Kale’s artwork is beautiful and absolutely stunning. Even for those that will prefer to solely read the original novel form, this item is a Harry Potter collector’s item. Now that I have it, I can’t imagine not having it as a part of my series collection. Overall, there isn’t a lot that can be said that hasn’t been said before when it comes to this series. If you haven’t read it, give it a chance...no matter your age. You might be surprised how much you enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Connecting siblings Me and my brother had zero common interests, until one Christmas when I gifted him the illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. He was 7 at the time and read the entire series in a few months. This series was my childhood and now it has become his as well, allowing us to connect on a much deeper level. For years, the Harry Potter books were my favourite books of all time and I guarantee they will be yours too. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book series was my childhood This book series was my childhood, and this one is what started it all.

Rowling my childhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Illustrations Make it Worth Buying a Book I Already Own As an artist myself, I enjoy picking up illustrated books when I like the art. I was a little skeptical when I first saw the illustrated versions of the Harry Potter books announced. Why buy second copies of all these books I already have? Because they are gorgeous, that's why! The illustrations are perfection. Worth owning a second copy because it's a whole new experience. And a brilliant way to introduce new readers to great story if you haven't read them yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Classic This isn’t exactly a book review — it is so hard to review such an iconic book. This is more about the experience of re-reading Harry Potter after so many years. Our local library is an amazing place, and this year, they have started a Book Geeks reading club aimed at adults, where our goal is to read and talk about one of the Harry Potter books each month. We had our first meeting earlier this month and it was so much fun. There was a group of us, all who were excited to geek out about Harry Potter. I was an adult when Harry Potter first came out and I decided to pick it up because I knew I’d never be able to talk to my niece and nephew again if I didn’t because all of their conversation revolved around it. Instantly, I was hooked and raced through the books as they came out. Re-reading The Philosopher’s Stone now was so much fun. I could look at what Rowling wrote in the context of the whole series and see the brilliance of it. Not only is it an entertaining and exciting book in it’s own right, full of interesting characters and battles between good and evil, but it set up the whole series. I was so impressed by things I would never have noticed all of those years ago, like mentions of characters important in the next books, and themes and story arcs that are integral to the whole series. Rowling’s vision for her series is masterful. I’ve recently heard that Rowling wrote the end of the last book before she ever wrote the first word of the first book — an impressive feat, but this certainly is what unifies the series so beautifully. What is there to say, really? The Philosopher’s Stone, even 20 years after it was published, is still one of the best middle grade books out there. It is timeless. My daughter recently started reading this series herself and she is as excited about it now as my niece and nephew were all of those years ago.

If you are an 'old fan', this familiar story you've come to love is brought to life by the absolutely beautiful illustrations that accompany the story throughout!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Illustrations I fell in love with this book the moment I saw it. Although I already own the series, I rationalized buying this book by saying my daughter could read it when she was older but secretly it is for myself. Can't wait to get the rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. I read this book with my family, and once on my own as well, and I can't believe how much I enjoyed it. J.K. Rowling uses the most detail that you actually feel like you're at all the events described in the book. I loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rereading the series The set up of the world is incredible. The characters are not very developed, which is understandable, but the sheer amount of imagination that went into building this book is amazing, especially knowing how complex the story becomes later in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OBSESSED Ever since I've been introduced to the Harry Potter series, I've been obsessed with Harry Potter. It's full of a great adventure and so much suspense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!!! I loved this book!! This book started it all, this is where you first meet Harry, Ron and Hermione, and are first introduced to the Wizarding World. I couldn't stop reading this book once starting, it became an instant addiction and even though I knew the ending ( I saw all the movies before reading the books) I just couldn't wait to read it. Totally Worth it for your collection!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philosopher's Stone It's a beautiful interpretation of the work. As an adult, it's a joy to look at and for children, it definitely keeps their attention a bit more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The illustrated philosopher's stone Oh. My. Goodness. If you thought you loved the books, wait until you SEE the books as they happen. Better than a movie, in my opinion. Plus, it introduces Harry Potter to a bunch more people, as many (I don't understand them) prefer pictures over reading. Great way to keep kids involved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible!!! This is really an incredible version of the best seller series Harry Potter. Great to look at in details with younger fans, who maybe do not understand ouse of the words used for describing the magical universe of Hogwarts. A really good choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love, love, love I'm quite late to the bandwagon and just finished the first Harry Potter book, but my GOODNESS, I am completely in love with the story. The book really makes you feel good while reading about all the magical experiences Harry goes through during his journey. The only thing I don't like is that I've waited all these years before picking up this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it get any better? Harry Potter is a classic and one of the few series that has remained a constant in the everchanging pile of books kept in prime position. As you've no doubt heard, it takes you on a wonderful ride filled with twists and turns and wonderful characters. It has lessons, but not corny ones that are shoved down your throat. My one piece of advice? Make sure to finish the first book before you write off Harry Potter as overrated. The first couple of chapters really don't set the tone for what's to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Memories I have and always will love Harry Potter because it holds a special place in my heart as it was a large part of my childhood. It is a great book (and series) full of lovable characters and plenty of adventure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL I bought the full paperback box. The books are really pretty and very good quality. I had never read the Harry Potter books before, just finished #1. It's very simply written ( for all ages) and still very enjoyable to older readers. It makes for a fun light read and I found myself stressing wiht Harry over certain event even though I knew from the movies what was going to happen.
