Seeing Jim Kay's illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry Potter's world, and I feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talent to it (J.K. Rowling)
Kay's illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a triumph - a book so alive it seems to jump, explode and slither out of your hands as you read (Praise for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Illustrated Edition, Telegraph)
It is stunning . with full colour illustrations throughout from Greenaway Medal winner Kay, who breathes incredible life into these much loved characters and locations, staying faithful to Rowling's vision but revitalising the story for a new generation (Praise for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Illustrated Edition: Bookseller)

The art throughout this book is so varied and not in any one style, ranging from charcoal and inks to bright colourful works to gentler water colours. The book uses dark coloured pages to great effect!
Some of the pictures are so bursting with detail that you simply have to stop reading and step into the page for a while. The layout of the book is such that the words and illustrations are in page turning synchronicity and you walk as you read your way through J.K Rowling's world longing to visit Diagon Alley once more.
Great care and thought has gone into this reimagining, not just the characters but also the buildings and architecture. Every detail has been considered and comes alive on the page.
Beautifully bound with a slip case designed to take readers off on a new journey to Hogwarts and all that entails. Jump in the flying Ford Anglia car and let the Weasley boys take you to their lovely yet ramshackle home.
If you want to have a look over my shoulder as I flick through this book, take a look at my video on YouTube. (Channel Tom Strong Reviews)
"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - illustrated by Jim Kay - Detailed Book View"
Excellent gift for Christmas. Both for people who have read the books and new comers alike.
(Amazon promptly delivered this book to me in pristine condition.)
I would definitely recommend this to any Harry Potter fan and a few non Harry Potter fans!
I've been a Harry Potter fan for a while, I'd say the first two books are my least favourite (and still I love them), but the illustrations are fabulous.
The illustrations are actually beautiful and I've found myself staring at the images for what feels like hours appreciating the craft involved in this version.
Wonderful for children, newcomers to the series and old fans alike!
