"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!

Harry Potter #1

 on 13 December 2017
By Serena
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!

Fantastic Anniversary Special Edition! Well worth the price!

Fantastic anniversary special edition. I love that the book has been released in four versions for each of the four houses and that they are also in house colours. The extra information at the front with information about the founders of each house and other information. I love it! Bought all four versions!

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).

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.

Great

Purchased as a gift for someone, who is a massive Harry Potter fan. They really liked it. It’s very well printed and has a high quilty feel to it. Recommended to any Harry Potter fans

Quite amazing how the author mapped out the whole plot with hawcruxes etc from the first novel, knitting it all together like one long story but nicely divided into Potter’s different years at school.

Amazing

I will not say anything about the story of Harry Potter, known by many.

Wonderful illustrations

Gorgeous quality. Bought having seen the artist who did the illustrations on the ‘one programme’ and our whole family love HP. I will look forward to turning the pages to read to our Grandchildren in a few years time. Half normal price. Would make a wonderful Christmas present.

Really enjoyable but disappointed with the name changes

 on 10 September 2017
By Steve S
Its great to see this classic of the future being translated into Welsh, disappointing this is the only edition done, would be nice to see the life of Harry in the other books also in Welsh, so many young people believe only boring books come in Welsh and so do not bother to continue to use the language outside of school. My only criticism is that the large majority of character names have changed unnecessarily from the English version when it is obvious that these people were never meant to be Welsh. This goes even further when Norbert the dragon comes in, the name and gender are both changed, why??? I do hope the rest of the series are also translated, as a Welsh language learner I really enjoy practicing by reading books I enjoyed in English

Magical!

I debated with myself for a long time over whether I ‘needed’ this – after all I already own the original book and the printed illustrated book so why did I need this as well?
