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!

J.K. Rowling is the author of the record-breaking, multi-award-winning Harry Potter novels. Loved by fans around the world, the series has sold over 450 million copies, been translated into 78 languages, and made into 8 blockbuster films.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Read The Philosopher's Stone follows a young boy named Harry who lives with his unaffectionate aunt, uncle, and cousin. His ordinary life turns around when he discovers he is in fact a wizard, and is requested to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There, he meets his friends Ron and Hermione, and together they uncover astonishing truths and go on fantastic adventures. I was already familiar with the whole Harry Potter universe before reading this book. But I sure am glad I decided to read the series -- from where it all started! The books are way more detailed than the movies and offer much more room for imagination. It was like I was there with Harry, and experiencing everything like he was. Indulge in this world of fantasy and adventure, you will not regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry Potter comes to live right before your eyes !! I know this is blasphemy, but prior today I have never read anything Harry Potter. When the Harry Potter craze was originally happening; I didn't at all want to be part of the fandom. Slowly but surely I let me guard down. I joined Pottermore (I'm a freakin Hufflepuff...) began to realize it was stupid of me to avoid these novels just because people are obsessed. I want to be properly obsessed as well. The other day at work I was speaking with my best friend Mel. And told her I really want the illustrated editions; as well as basically every other cover because these novels are gorgeous on the outside as well. I came to work Friday; and guess what...Mel got me the first novel. I'm sad to say it took me this long to read the first novel. But I read it in once sitting. I loved everything about this novel, and the illustrations were sublime. I can't wait to purchase the next two novels that are illustrated and buy other copies of the full series to indulge in. I can't wait to own all the illustrated novels and to have them on my book shelves. I know for sure once I read all the novels this is going to be one of my most favourite series written.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, leaves me excited for the rest Full disclosure: I am in my mid twenties and I have never read this series. I’ve seen all of the movies, but I must admit that I haven’t fully understood them, so I figured I would take advantage of the free time I’ve had lately and get into this series. The first book was exactly as expected. Very easy to read and kept my attention the whole time. I am looking forward to the rest of the books in this series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-read. You are not well read if you haven't read Harry Potter. I read it for the first time this past summer and loved it immediately! This first book in the series is the beginning of the story, and sets the scene very thoroughly, is a complete adventure in itself, and leaves you hungry for much more. Over all seven books, the back story is revealed slowly,so that you have to read the complete series several times to fully understand it. Caution: Highly Addictive! #plumreview

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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic HP Illustrated editions and where to find them... These are a wonderful edition to collect. If you are new to Harry Potter, what a truly amazing edition to read and experience the adventure for the first time. 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! I am looking forward to owning the complete collection and hopefully one day being provided with grand-babies to read to so I can relive the magic all over again through the eyes and ears and hearts of the next generation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing After reading Harry Potter, it was the first time that I fully became engrossed in a novel. The magical world of Harry Potter helps you to escape from the realities of today's world. I love that many readers continue to read and love the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from entry into another world! by now everyone probably knows at least a little about the boy who lived, but I can never get enough of the world J.K Rowling created and it all starts with this one. being the shortest of the series its an easy read but it pulls you in and makes you wish by the end that it was all real

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical This book, the first in the Harry Potter series sets the scene for his future adventures... and brought many children and adults into the wonderful world and movie magic which followed this story.
