Shout Out: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone – Illustrated Edition

Just in time for Christmas, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is back in a new glorious, illustrated edition!

In this large-format, full-colour, exquisitely produced book, the complete text has been given new life by the wonderful illustrations of Jim Kay. The clever two-column layout for the text means that younger readers still only have relatively short lines to read, and with an illustration on nearly every spread, this is a truly visual Harry Potter experience.

We are die-hard Potter fans in my household, and we've all ooh-ed and aah-ed over this edition. It's the perfect gift for devoted fans and new readers alike!
