Editorial Reviews

"Kay's illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a triumph - a book so alive it seems to jump, explode and slither out of your hands as you read." - Telegraph"Seeing Jim Kay's illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry Potter's world, and I feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talent to it." - J.K. Rowling"One of the greatest literary adventures of modern times." - Sunday Telegraph"The Harry Potter stories will join that small group of children's books which are read and reread into adulthood." - Times Literary Supplement
