Details: Product Description 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. 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! Review • "I've yet to meet a ten-year-old who hasn't been entranced by its witty, complex plot and the character of the eponymous Harry." -- Independent • "Spellbinding, enchanting, bewitching stuff." -- Mirror Book Description HOGWARTS Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, located in a vast castle atop a high mountain, was founded by two wizards and two witches: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin. HARRY POTTER Harry Potter is a wizard, the only child of James and Lily Potter. He is famous for having survived an attack by Lord Voldemort when he was a baby. He is also sometimes known as ‘The Boy Who Lived’. RUBEUS HAGRID Hagrid is the Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts. He is almost twice as tall as most people and about five times as wide. He has a liking for strange and dangerous creatures, especially dragons. HERMIONE GRANGER Hermione, along with Ron Weasley, becomes one of Harry's best friends. She, too, is in Gryffindor house. She is very clever and hardworking and always gets top marks in her exams. Her parents are Muggle dentists. DRACO MALFOY Draco is Harry's arch-enemy at Hogwarts. A thin boy with a pale, pointed face and a sneering expression, Malfoy is in Slytherin house. He believes himself to be superior to Harry and hates him and all his friends. RON WEASLEY Ron quickly becomes one of Harry's best friends at Hogwarts. He has bright red hair and freckles, like his five older brothers, Charlie, Bill, Percy, George and Fred. He also has a younger sister called Ginny. Ron is also in Gryffindor house at Hogwarts and has a pet rat called Scabbers. About the Author J.K.
