2017 will see an auspicious alignment of anniversaries. J. K. Rowling's world-beating debut novel Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone turns 20 this year and Itchy Coo, celebrating 15 years in the book trade, will publish a Scots version of this classic text - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stane.

The novel has already been translated into a staggering 79 languages - Itchy Coo's Scots translation will be language number 80. Since 2002, Itchy Coo has been wowing young readers and challenging old attitudes with bold new translations of books by Roald Dahl, Julia Donaldson, David Walliams, Alexander McCall Smith, A.A. Milne, Asterix and others - and done it all in the wonderful Scots language which has the power to engage, excite and entertain readers of all ages.

Matthew Fitt's forthcoming Scots translation of J.K. Rowling's phenomenal adventure story will break new ground and earn a place in hearts of young Scots readers and Harry Potter fans alike.

Harry Potter has been at the heart of Waterstones since the first copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone came into our hands.  We’re delighted to share these new editions of the series.

“An unassailable stand for the power of fresh innovative story-telling” – The Scotsman
