Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Spring

This hefty and handsomely illustrated new edition invites the reader into the wizarding world of Harry Potter from the moment the book is opened to the final pages. Kay's beautiful, slightly off-kilter paintings reinvent the now-familiar characters, giving new readers an all-encompassing reading experience and the already-acquainted a fresh go at the classic.
