Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone: Illustrated Edition

Calling all Harry Potter fans - today we are talking books! (Although you may have guessed that from the title and photo above!)

In particular - the new illustrated version of The Philosopher's Stone which I have had my eyes on since the day of it's release.
If you didn't know, the Harry Potter books are all being turned into hardback illustrated versions over the next few years. (I got told it's one a year for 7 years but I'm not sure if that's entirely correct!)

After receiving some money for my birthday this was top of my list. Something I had really wanted and something I could keep - I wanted to spend my money wisely and not on stupid things like food and cotton wool pads. (This unfortunately seems to happen alot when you're a boring adult and receive money)

I'm such a Harry Potter fan and I know so many of you are too so I thought if you hadn't seen what the book looks like already then maybe you would like too!
It's pretty big (NOT handbag size) but perfect for displaying and definitely ideal for reading with children! (I'm definitely thinking ahead with that bit but my children WILL be huge Potter fans - I mean I'm already planning on calling my first dog Ron!)

The pictures are fantastic and really throw you into the story - I cannot wait to get the whole collection and have them all looking special on my bookshelf!
The book is priced at £30 - which seems alot but the quality is amazing - but at the moment on Amazon it's half price
Here's a sneak peek.....

  2. I got this for Christmas and I absolutely love it.
    The drawings are so perfect, I'm just worried about how big the later books are going to be, I might not have space!
