Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Hardback)
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?

Hi. This is the book that made me want to read even though I could not at the time. Thank you JK Rowling for giving me the magic that I needed at that time in my life.
Book Depository can you please get this Hardcover Edition back in stock. I don't own a copy of it and I really would like to own this version. Thanks by TARIQ ALI

The definition of my childhood!
What can I say? It's the book that ignited my love for fantasy, that made me wish I could leave school and go to Hogwarts and (most importantly) made me want an owl.
I've read it at least ten times and every time it doesn't fail to send the butterflies fluttering around my stomach again and zap me back in time to that first evening I sat by the fire and turned the first page.
It's a book and,indeed a series that must be read at least once in a persons life.
