J K Rowling's sequel to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone carries on where the original left off. Harry is returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry after the summer holidays and, right from the start, things are not straightforward.
Unable to board the Hogwarts express, Harry and his friends break all the rules and make their way to the school in a magical flying car. From this point on, incredible events happen to Harry and his friends--Harry hears evil voices and someone, or something is attacking the pupils. Can Harry get to the bottom of the mystery before it's too late?
As with its predecessor, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a highly readable and imaginative adventure story with real, fallible, characters, plenty of humour and, of course, loads of magic and spells. There is no need to have read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to enjoy this book. However, if you have read it, this is the book you have been waiting for... (Ages 9 years+)

Nice book set, comes in a display box to store them all together - would definitely recommend to any harry potter fans
The books are well presented and look good on display in her room, and the alternative cover art is great.
I found several places selling this boxed set at a MUCH higher price (including so-called "voucher" sites selling it at twice the price!!) so I felt the price was excellent value considering the cost of buying the original books individually.
Great value, great looking, excellent choice for both younger and older readers.
Very quick with delivery! Payed for next day delivery and thats what I got! Extremely impressed that they delivered over the Easter Weekend!
Bit worried when I bought them because so many reviews had said that their books arrived damaged but really pleased that none of mine were! Only on the 2nd book but I can't put them down!
The covers are just amazing also! I'm 19 years old so they are not just appealing to young children!
To my mind, this book has everything that makes up a classic, and I have no doubt the Harry Potter series will earn that title. JK Rowling certainly deserves it.
