Description

Harry can't wait for his holidays with the dire Dursleys to end. But a small, self-punishing house-elf warns Harry of mortal danger awaiting him at Hogwarts School. Returning to the castle nevertheless, Harry hears a rumour about a chamber of secrets, holding unknown horrors to magicians of Muggle parentage. Now someone is casting spells that turn people to stone, and a terrible warning is found painted on the wall. The chief suspect - who's always in the wrong place - is Harry. But something much darker has yet to be unleashed.show more

Review quote

'A wonderful creation ... The comic handling of the material and the insight into the child's world are fresh and magical in every sense ... the new Harry Potter is in my suitcase ready for my holiday' Ian Hislop, Sunday Telegraph 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, unlike many sequels, is as good as its predecessor ... Hogwarts is a creation of genius' Times Literary Supplement 'It seemed so unlikely that she could replicate the imaginative power, emotional intensity and entrancing complexity of the prototype, that I received the draft of volume two with trepidation. It's good to be wrong sometimes' Glasgow Herald 'An intricately woven, highly imaginative tale ... cleverly textured, sophisticated fiction' Scotland on Sundayshow more

Our customer reviews

When I was a little girl I borrowed my brothers copy of CoS and left it out side in the rain- long story short- it grew mold and had to be chucked out. He never let me forget and not that we're 'grown ups' his birthday present will be the 'grown up' cover edition (hopefully this means all is forgiven) CoS is one of my favourite of the 7, mainly because it is still 'child friendly' enough to be engaging to a child like I was at the time it was published, but engaging enough for me to return to now and love.show more
