Dominus et Domina Dursley, qui vivebant in aedibus Gestationis Ligustrorum numero quattor signatis ...

The first words of J.K. Rowling's timeless classic are more familiar to readers as 'Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive ...'

Following in the steps of other great children's classics, including Winnie the Pooh (winnie ille pu) and Paddington Bear (ursus nomine paddington), Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is available in Latin. Learners and lovers of Latin will delight in Peter Needham's sparkling translation, which perfectly captures the wit and invention of J.K. Rowling's original, now reissued with stunning new cover art from Jonny Duddle.

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, now entirely reimagined by one of our favourite writers and illustrators, Jonny Duddle.

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

MEDIA REVIEWS
The translation is great stuff. It is accurate and fluent, but it is much more than that. It has been carried off with wit, inventiveness, sensitivity and panache. I find it impossible to think of it being better done * James Morwood, Oxford University *
A marvellous translation, filled with delightful touches ... Extremely enjoyable Latin reading material. Kudos to Peter Needham for what I think is a wonderful translation! * Laura Gibbs, Translator, Aesop's Fables (Oxford World's Classics) *

“This book is awesome!”

A welcome addition to the Potter world.
I'm 22 now, Definitely not too old to still be a fan. Hogwarts will live with me forever, and this has reignited the magic! The illustrations are fab!
