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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where it Started Harry's journey into the world of wizardry has its magical start right here, as the readers are allowed to marvel along with harry at the different wonders this hidden society has to offer. Along with those wonders come much danger though, and the way Harry and his friends navigate through their troubles in their first year of school is utterly charming. A timeless classic through and through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Book At the time when the first Harry Potter movie came out I was working at a movie theater and decided that even though I originally though it seemed a bit young for myself that I wanted to know what all the excitement was about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry, Harry, Harry. I was recommended this book by a good friend of mine. He told me his son read it and thought of me so my friend read it and then sent it to me to read. And man oh man I almost stopped reading because the start was really slow and I was not at all into wizard, magic and fantasy. But I pushed threw and eventually I fell for it big time. I read all of J.K Rowling's other Harry Potter books, Fantastic Beasts and so on. These books have changed me. Me and my boyfriend even went to celebrate by going to the Harry Potter world in Florida. If you are not a fan of fantasy just give this book a try at least until page 50 and you will be a whole different person you never thought you could be. J.K Rowling is a rare person who can change someones thought on a genre of books completely so I give her a big round of applause to this. The only thing I didn't like about the book is that you can't put it down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this book! I had seen all of the Harry Potter movies before I had read any of the books, I am truly glad I saw the movies first because as usual, the book is so much better! This was a truly enjoyable read, and has something for everyone...I enjoyed this as an adult, but I could see me reading this to my 8 year old and 15 year old and having everyone enjoy it for different reasons. The characters and themes are instantly relateable, which I feel makes these books more successful as a whole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Magic Holds I first read this book when I was 12, and recently, decided to revisit it and see if it still holds the same magic it once held. The verdict? I think it was even better the second time around! Harry Potter may seem like a child's or young teen's book, but oh on the contrary. The first book is simply a warm-up for one of the greatest fantasy series in the history of books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read all of them, you won't regret it!! Harry Potter is not just for kids! The caliber of writing in all seven of these books makes the series appropriate for people of all ages. I read The Philosopher's Stone for the first time when I was 11 and couldn't wait to get my letter to Hogwarts. Even now, in adulthood, I still reread them regularly, and I'm always blown away by the characters, the storyline and the fantasy of it all. J.K. Rowling creates a detailed, creative, and immersive coming of age saga with themes that stay relevant throughout the years. Give it a try if you haven't read it or jump back into that universe if it's been a while! #plumreview

This book is the first of seven books in the series in the original storyline. It takes you into a wonderful world of Hogwarts, Muggles, witchcraft, wizards, and black magic is intertwined. Defeintly a book to give to a child, teenager, or for someone who wants to recapture some of their nostalgia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let's talk about the boy who lived Well, if somehow you've never read any of these books or watched the movies I'm gonna say quit reading this and just buy it. You'll never regret it. The philossopher's stone was a gift from my best friend, this book taught me to love books in general and to read at the speed of light! It's so interesting that you'll probably finish it in two days^^ or one. You'll find it easy to read, entertaining and incredibly powerful at the same time. I don't know a single person that talks about the Harry potter series as average books. So if you're searching for an adventure you found a great one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! I waited 20 years to try these out. My sister read them all and naturally I chose not to. I finally decided to give in and read it, I am glad that I did. It's super good and pulls you in. I read it in a day, I couldn't put it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book! I read the series many times as a kid but I'm thoroughly enjoying re-reading these illustrated versions as an adult. The illustrations are beautiful and the book just feels special. I can't wait to get the other books in the series as they come out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Start to an Amazing Series Nice simple read, with enough difference from the movie that though I have seen it a million times I could still enjoy the book and feel like it was something new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical! A sweet introduction to a series that only gets better. The read is light, easy and exciting! Though it's enjoyable at all ages I recommend an introduction as a kid or pre-teen, it adds to the magic. It will be re-read, trust me. The characters are relatable and multidimensional. Set in an extraordinary world that grows with each read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing artwork! Wow, as a Harry Potter fan this had to be a part of my collection. Jim Kay's illustrations bring to life the world Rowling created. It was amazing to read the same story, but with images throughout the book. I like how the text is in two thick columns on each page. It makes it easy to read and the images are scattered nicely throughout the book. There's never a lack of images as in some other "illustrated" books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Magical Book for Kids and Adults I first heard this story read to me by my mother a long time ago. Now I have read this book, along with the rest of the series, pretty much once a year for over 10 years. One of those books where you can read them over and over and still find new things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Old Favorite I have fond memories of staying up all night to read these books, and I can't wait to read them all over again. It's always an adventure, trailing Harry, Ron, and Hermione through Hogwarts, and - naturally - I'll be cheering Gryffindor at every Quidditch match. This series is an instant favorite, and absolutely unforgettable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Buying, Even If You Have The Original Books! I love that it's a hardback! The drawings are beautiful and the print is of great quality. You get just as lost in the swirls of the paint as you do in the story itself. I have all of the Harry Potter books and yet am rereading each of them as the illustrated versions come out. Jim Kay has done a wonderful job. I can't wait for the rest of the series. Seems they get released every year or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Wow! Can't get enough of the gorgeous pictures in this book. They bring new life to the well known story and aren't exact copies of the films which keeps them fresh.And as for the story itself, it was a huge part of my childhood like so many others have said, and I'm still enjoying as a young adult. Will treasure this edition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing It's been a while since I've last reread the series but going through the adventure again with these new illustrated editions have been such a treat. I do wish that there were more illustrations - many scenes I really felt like could have used a full page illustration but I guess this will have to do. This is a perfect gift for someone who loves Harry Potter.
