Kay's illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a triumph - a book so alive it seems to jump, explode and slither out of your hands as you read (Praise for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Illustrated Edition, Telegraph)
It is stunning . with full colour illustrations throughout from Greenaway Medal winner Kay, who breathes incredible life into these much loved characters and locations, staying faithful to Rowling's vision but revitalising the story for a new generation (Praise for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Illustrated Edition: Bookseller)
From the Publisher
The third book in the Harry Potter series marked a notable change in tone, towards darker territory, as well as the introduction of key characters such as Sirius Black and Professor Trelawney. The Illustrated Edition will no doubt bring those new additions to life, and in Jim Kay’s distinctive style.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
The fully-illustrated Prisoner of Azkaban is the third of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels to be interpreted by artist, Jim Kay.
Readers can expect to see more depictions of Hogwarts professors, like Severus Snape, as well as images of Hogwarts castle and the iconic Knight Bus, which features on the cover.
The Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban includes over 115 new graphics and is to be translated into over 21 languages around the world.

More than any other books, the Harry Potter Series spurred my love of reading. There were times in my life when I felt too busy or burdened to read, but I would always make time each summer for these books as they released. I quite literally grew up with the characters, reading the books at the same age as the characters were. I read the first book in 2000 when I was ten and The Deathly Hallows the summer after my senior year of high school. Even from childhood, I knew I wanted to share these books with my own children someday and have been waiting for the time when they would be old enough to comprehend the stories. Luckily, the books illustrated by Jim Kay were the perfect way to begin these books a little earlier with my young children.
We have a tradition going, though my kids know the movies inside and out, I’m being a bit of a mean mom and making my kids wait to read the books as the illustrated editions come out. We are at the mercy of Jim Kay’s talent, waiting until the Goblet of Fire is released in its illustrated form to continue with the series. I also don’t let my kids flip ahead to sneak peeks at the pictures. Each time we turn the page, a surprise is waiting for us on the other side. This makes reading the series even more fun than I expected, as we want to read to more and more just to look at the gorgeous artwork.
I was most excited to read The Prisoner of Azkaban because it’s my favorite book of the entire series. The Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs revelation blew my mind as a kid and I couldn’t wait for my kids to experience it too…since it’s unfortunately left out of the movie adaptation. As we crept toward the end of the story, my daughter was begging me to continue reading until my voice was so hoarse, I had to stop. As I hoped, she was nearly as excited about the ending of the story as I was as a child.
I’m extremely grateful for these moments, sharing my own childhood favorites with my kids, thanks to J.K. Rowling and Jim Kay. The books and the memories they have fostered will be forever cherished.
I WAS surprised though, because I didn’t realize it would be textbook size with all these amazing scenes drawn out. They’re AH-MAY-ZING drawings!! If you love Harry Potter, you will love these books. For some reason, hubs couldn’t find the first and second of the series (I did ;p) so he bought the third first, but we know the stories by heart so it doesn’t matter to me. I hope they put out all of them! It almost feels like how I felt waiting for the actual series to come out.
