We were lagging in our Potter-verse reading. We devoured all the movies, and parents read the first 1 1/2 books with the kids early on, but they never picked them up themselves. Enter these LAVISH and exquisite editions. We gifted my 13 yo daughter for her birthday, and she hardly put them down. She carefully removed the dust jackets to stow them in her backpack for reading on the school bus. She finished the first volume in under 10 days. She is burning through them, loves them, and is dropping potter-verse like it's going out of style. Highly recommended, and can't wait for the next volumes.
