Sorry we can't get this title, the button below links through to AbeBooks who may have this title (opens in new window).
DescriptionHarry Potter is an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs at his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's house, which he thinks is normal for someone like him who's parents have been killed in a 'car crash'. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they?

I loved this series and I recommend it to people of all ages. Both old and new will enjoy this tale of bravery, love and friendship. by Olivia Stroeven
We all know the story so I will review the book I received from The Book Depository. It looks great! It's almost new. I am planning on collecting different editions of Harry Potter, and this is the first one from the "Celebratory Edition". I already ordered Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban, so I am looking forward to that one! Thank you Book Depository! :) by John Paul Solatorio

A magical book

J.K Rowling captures the imagination of young and old with this fresh take on stories like King Arthur and Cinderella. The prose is comfortable and engrossing as the author creates an entire world of its own. Harry Potter brings with it a thousand years of stories and myth and legends and streams them all into a modern setting. Dungeons and dragons, ghosts and trolls, good and evil, Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone is a must read. It is a book for the entire twenty first century to cherish. by Mohammad Sajjad
