Celebrate 20 years of Harry Potter magic!

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!

This book is stunning, a work of art!
Jim Kay's illustrations capture the wizarding world beautifully and really bring alive J.K. Rowling's text.

I love all the HP books so i was so excited to get brought this book. I loved re reading the Philosophers Stone and I think the illustrations are epic. Since reading this book Ive been inspired to draw more pictures from the magical world.

Harry Potter finds life hard at his Uncle and Aunt, but his meeting with a towering man changes his life forever. On his way on the train for admission to the Hogwarts School, he makes several friends and learns various tricks. 
The illustrations by Jim Kay add immensely to the book which is already very good.
