"I love seeing Jim Kay's interpretation of Harry Potter's world, and I feel honored and grateful that he continues to lend his talent to it." -- J.K. Rowling
"It's all that an old-fashioned book aficionado could wish for . . . Is this, one wonders, the sort of book found at Diagon Alley's Flourish and Blotts or in the Hogwarts library? Kay's illustrations, freshly re-envisioning the story, range from spot images to dramatic double page spreads, all pulsating with color and vitality. This gorgeous volume is sure to please all, from Harry Potter neophytes to longtime fans." -- New York Times Book Review

The books are longer and wider than the originals, albeit thinner. The larger page area allows for full sized (and sometimes double paged) images that truly immerse you in the current scene. The print is also a little larger, which is great for younger readers picking up the series for the first time.
As for the literature itself, we all know this series is a timeless classic. If you're an adult and have not read this series before (even if you've seen the movies), I encourage you to read the books. Whether it's the originals or these, the series is sure to be one of the best you've read and much better than the movies, of course. Though with the illustrated novels, you will have to wait a year between each book like I had to as a kid, but it'll be even more worth it to have the amazing pictures to accompany it.
I loved it then, I love it now. As always amazing character descriptions that pull you in, as she guides you through twists and turns I had forgotten about so I could be emerged in the magic once more.
I can't wait to read the series to my daughter when she is a little bit older
I WAS surprised though, because I didn’t realize it would be textbook size with all these amazing scenes drawn out. They’re AH-MAY-ZING drawings!! If you love Harry Potter, you will love these books. For some reason, hubs couldn’t find the first and second of the series (I did ;p) so he bought the third first, but we know the stories by heart so it doesn’t matter to me. I hope they put out all of them! It almost feels like how I felt waiting for the actual series to come out.
Here we are with book three, HP and "The Prisoner of Azkaban" chock full with the wonderful Jim Kay color illustration - some full double page. Yes, we treasure the words but the illustrations truly, I believe, bring the story to life.
Like most I have a full set of the Scholastic "door stops" editions in cheap paper soft cover getting yellowed by the day. As soon as the entire set is published in these Jim Kay beauties those old books will be donated and this collection will stand proud on my shelf.
I have the same complaint as many amazon customers. The book was not packaged very carefully so the dust cover was beat up on the corners more than expected. Amazon does forget that items like this are purchased for collective purposes and sending them damaged isn’t acceptable.
