"Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'."

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

I like it better than the film.

I like it better than the film. There is more to it. I have found while reading all the Harry Potter books to my son while at the same time going through the movies that they really took liberties with the screen adaptation. I would recommend reading the book even if you weren’t blown away by the movie.

I gave it a go to see what the fuss was about…

So I managed to avoid the films as I’ve never really been interested in genre. My sister in law is a Harry potter fanatic and I never really understood the appeal. We are both in our 30s so I thought it was a bit sad to be honest. I have birth to my second child and thought while I’m on maternity I will give the book a go and see what the fuss is about. I find it difficult to stay focused on books and I’m one of those people who needs to re-read a page over and over for it to sink in.

What a beautiful edition!

Arrived a day before we expected so that was excellent service to start with; I went for the kids’ version of this boxset after traversing the reviews here and seeing most people thought the art of this edition was more compelling than any others. They were right! The books are all gorgeously printed and decorated, and the box itself has Hogwarts scenery on it, which is lovely to look at when it’s turned around. Was packaged well so there’s no damage that I can see; everything’s in perfect condition. Thank you, seller!

suffice to say I love it. This review is specifically for the edition …

I’m not going to review the novel itself here, suffice to say I love it. This review is specifically for the edition I purchased: the U.S. Deluxe Edition hardcover published by Arthur A. Levine Books (ISBN-13: 978-0545029377).

Magical Box Set For Children And Adults

By Steve Bell
It is inconceivable that anyone is not familiar with J K Rowling’s Harry Potter books – the short description is that they are magical for both children and adults. There are many different Harry Potter box sets on the market – this review relates to the children’s hardcover version of the seven books, published by Bloomsbury (United Kingdom) in 2014 with ISBN 9781408856789. The fact it is called the “children’s version” is slightly inaccurate – it simply means it is a “different” design from the “adult” version. To say one box set is for adults and another for children is not correct.

Brilliant

After years of living with his maternal Aunt, Uncle and cousin after the death of his parents Harry Potter receives a letter in the mail informing him that he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His Aunt and Uncle try everything they can to stop him going, for their own reasons. Harry was expecting a bit of wand waving and a few magic words.. what he wasn’t expecting was to gain two best friends and have a rollercoaster of an adventure that would leave him face to face with the man who wants him dead.

This was a repurchase for me as my original Harry Potter book is battered from years of reading. I’ve reread this book since and of course, I loved it. The beginning can be a little slow for younger readers as a lot of it is not in the movies, but the remaining 85% is and can be completely imagined throughout. I like the fact most of the original dialogue was translated into movies which is something I’ve noticed since rereading as an adult. Lovely start to the fabulous series and I am buying the full set to have a newer looking set on my shelf!

Amazing
