|Blending the genres of fantasy, mystery, horror, and drama, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" is more of a phenomenon than merely a book. A tale about a young boy who discovers he's a wizard, it's sprinkled generously with comedy and puns. It also features grand adventures and explores themes like love, loyalty, good versus evil, and the enduring power of friendship. This magical world exists right alongside mundane, everyday reality, and readers discover its secrets along with the characters. Follow Harry as he leaves his non-magical, "muggle" life for the Scottish Highlands to attend the wizarding school, Hogwarts. His new-found friend, Hagrid the half-giant, reveals early details of Harry's past, answering lifelong questions. Along the way, they visit a wizard bank and buy a wand for Harry at a magical store in Diagon Alley. This secret street in London also features a seller of magical creatures, cauldrons, books, and sweets. New friendships are made as he boards the Hogwarts Express, bound for his magical school. Harry soon learns he will have to face villainous sorcerer Voldemort, whose evil spell he barely escaped as an infant. Voldemort is after a mythical stone belonging to the philosopher Nicolas Flamel. Harry must find the stone belonging to the philosopher first and save the day. If he doesn’t, he will risk the sorcerer Voldemort becoming more powerful. Readers can revisit the beginning of the tale in a brand-new way with "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: The Illustrated Edition." This 256-page hardcover book by Rowling features eye-catching artwork by Jim Kay. Over 100 illustrations are present in the book and depict pivotal scenes in the story. As the first edition of the series, the same magic can be relived all over again in the illustrated book. This edition takes the imaginative tale and transforms it into a work of visual art. While the Potter books possess significant scholastic merit, this version can also be enjoyed for its artistic beauty. Colorful illustrations can draw the eye of interested children. They can check for their favorite characters, scenes, and locations on each page. Longtime Harry Potter devotees will enjoy revisiting the vivid images and enthralling tale in the illustrated book. Alternatively, this book makes a fantastic gift for a new fan looking to begin a magical literary journey.|

|Praise for the original publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone "A wonderful first novel. Much like Roald Dahl, J. K. Rowling has a gift for keeping the emotions, fears, and triumphs of her characters on a human scale, even while the supernatural is popping out all over. The book is full of wonderful, sly humor [and] the characters are impressively three-dimensional (occasionally, four-dimensional!) and move along seamlessly through the narrative. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is as funny, moving and impressive as the story behind its writing. Like Harry Potter, [J. K. Rowling] has wizardry inside, and has soared beyond her modest Muggle surroundings to achieve something quite special." -- The New York Times Book Review "A charming, imaginative, magical confection of a novel. . . . A glorious debut, a book of wonderful comic pleasures and dizzying imaginative flights. There is no cause to doubt Rowling's abilities and promise, and every reason to expect great things, truly great things, from her in the future." -- The Boston Sunday Globe "You don't have to be a wizard or a kid to appreciate the spell cast by Harry Potter." -- USA Today "The story delights and the writing gives you goosebumps, the good kind." -- Chicago Tribune *"Readers are in for a delightful romp with this award-winning debut from a British author who dances in the footsteps of P. L. Travers and Roald Dahl. Rowling leaves the door wide open for a sequel; bedazzled readers will surely clamor for one." -- Publishers Weekly , starred review|

The pictures are very well done and perfect for my 5 year old grandson who needs a few pictures in his books at this early age. I would have given it 5 stars but our copy has many damaged pages, which look like it was done in production.

Pleasantly surprised by the amount of illustrations and the level of detail they contained!
What I love about the illustrations is how many there are and how detailed they are. There are pages with full illustrations, half-illustrations and sometimes just little ink or paint drops on the pages. There's Snape who looks more evil in sinister in Book 1, and I hope that Kay gradually shows his transformation through the coming books. There's a door with names carved into it of important book characters like Lupin, Riddle, and even JKR scrawled somewhere on it. And then, there's the glorious sorting hat! Kay's Sorting Hat is no cheap looking black hat with a mouth, but a colorful, stitched together monstrosity that looks like it has more of a story to tell than the movie one ever did.

Exactly what i wanted.
The book is sturdy. Not every page has pictures, but the ones that do are is exactly what I expected, and the style match the cover of every other Harry Potter book. I cant wait for the rest of the series to be illustrated!
