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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to your book collection! I bought this book when I was in grade 5 and I have now graduated university but this book never gets old! I recently read this again after many years and I was once again captivated by the magical world of Hogwarts. It's such an amazing story that is adventure filled. It opens up a reader's imagination! I would definitely recommend this book to you readers. It's perfect for all ages 9 years and older.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A classic I liked the Harry Potter series as much as anyone else but I'm not giving it 5 stars because I think the reason why I loved it is, at least in part, due to all the hype, culture and merchandising that's built around it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this was a good book i read this for the first time since it came out and it is a really good book. the only gripe i had with it was the ending. i know it's a kids book for the most part and they get more serious later on but it seemed a bit too happy of an ending for my tastes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Book I still have my copy from when it first came out with a different cover, much loved from many moves. 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 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.

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.

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.

This is a perfect gift for someone who loves Harry Potter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Up until I was nine years old, I wouldn't read for fun, but after discovering the Harry Potter series I was hooked. I read the entire series over and over again for three years straight and now. Nine years later, at 18 I still enjoy the story

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 It's popular for a reason When I haven't had the glorious taste of Harry Potter when I was younger, I didn't understand the hype. But it's popular for a reason. If you haven't read Harry Potter yet, you need to. Now. Harry Potter takes you on an unforgettable, magical journey that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

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 Magical! This book will ignite the love of reading in most any child. I have read this book several times, I have read it with each of my children. It is a magical story that is well written, insightful and a wondrous escape from life for a while. It is so easy to get caught up in this magical world. Rowling is without a doubt one of the most talented writers ever.
