The landmark publishing event of 2015 -- a full-colour illustrated edition of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone with breathtaking illustrations by Jim Kay, winner of the Kate Greenaway medal.

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.

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 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 So Classic I first read this when I was 10 years old. I devoured it -- consumed it -- breathed it. To this day, I still love this book and it will never get old. A permanent and necessary part of your library no matter your age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read. Everybody, whether you are young or old, should read this book. To me it seems like a right of passage to have to read this, and all the other books in the H.P. series. Would definitely, definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP4L This is your entrance into the Wizarding World. It's hard to believe it's been 20 years since I first stumbled upon this book. JK Rowling is a literary genius.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 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 Unforgettable read This was the first novel that I can remember reading. I've had the chance to read in in elementary school, and can still appreciate the novel that it is today. This is a complete page turner. Even if you consider yourself a slow reader, this is certainly the type of novel that one could finish over the course of the weekend and will have you excited for book two. Though it may seem overrated, this could not be further from the truth. This is a novel that holds up. Well worth the time reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! If you're an extreme Potterhead you already know since you have a copy, but these books are beautiful and are a must have addition to a book shelf. The artist illustrated them so well. Though I adore the cast of the movies, it's nice having imagery from the books that don't directly resemble Emma, Rupert and Daniel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nostalgia definitely helps this book I love Harry Potter, truly. I actually watched the movies before reading the books but that didn't affect my enjoyment, especially since they're quite different in certain parts. This was my first reread and it was a nice beginning. I do think this book is great and deserves its success, but I wonder what I would've thought about it if I could erase all memory of it and start again.
