Strange things always seem to happen when Harry Potter is around. Things that unsettle his guardians, the Dursleys. They strongly disapprove of strangeness. It's only when a letter arrives, delivered by a shaggy giant of a man called Hagrid, that Harry learns the truth that will transform his entire future: his parents were killed by the evil Lord Voldemort, and he, Harry, is a wizard. Whisked away to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy, Harry discovers a world of enchantments, ghosts, Quidditch, and friends who will stand, through everything, by his side. But when Harry hears of a stone with great powers, he finds that his school has its own dark secrets - and an adventure that will become the stuff of legend begins. These adult editions with glorious jacket art by Andrew Davidson are now available in hardback for the first time.

And you thought wizardry was for children. Harry Potter will make you think again. He casts his spells on grown-ups too * James Naughtie *
Funny, imaginative, magical ... In the 2020s, thirty-something book-lovers will know each other by smug references to Diagon Alley and Quidditch * The Times *
The Harry Potter stories will join that small group of children's books which are read and reread into adulthood * TLS *
Rowling uses classic narrative devices with flair and originality and delivers a complex and demanding plot in the form of a hugely entertaining thriller * Scotsman *
One of the greatest literary adventures of modern times * Sunday Telegraph *
Spellbinding, enchanting, bewitching stuff * Mirror *

A welcome addition to the Potter world.
