An extraordinary creative achievement by an extraordinary talent, Jim Kay's inspired reimagining of J.K. Rowling's classic series has captured a devoted following worldwide.

This stunning new fully illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban brings more breath-taking scenes and unforgettable characters - including Sirius Black and Remus Lupin as Harry and his friends face mystery and magic under the light of an unforgiving moon.

With paint, pencil and pixels, Kay conjures the wizarding world as we have never seen it before. Fizzing with magic, enchanting strangeness and brimming with humour, this full-colour edition will captivate fans and new readers alike as Harry, now in his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, faces Dementors, death omens and - of course - danger.

There’s a murderer on the loose and he has his sights set on Harry Potter; the boy who lived is in danger once more. Harry has never heard of notorious mass-murderer Sirius Black when he runs away from home one summer night, with only his owl, Hedwig, and his school trunk. But before he knows it, Harry is whisked away on the Knight Bus (“emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard”) and finds himself screeching towards The Leaky Cauldron and his next year at Hogwarts. But the shade of ‘The Grim’, the worst wizarding omen of death, is following him and nowhere is safe, not even Hogwarts. For the school is being guarded by fearsome Dementors, the guards of Azkaban prison, waiting to suck out the souls of the living with their terrifying kiss. Nothing is certain in a world where even time itself may not be what it seems.

Baffling Boggarts, portentous tea-leaves, silver stags and a soaring journey on Hippogriff wings await you, if you dare to turn the page.  Waterstones calls you to look for the light in the darkest of places in this haunting third instalment of J.K. Rowling’s award-winning series.

Do you solemnly swear you are up to no good?

We at Waterstones have been championing Harry since the first copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone came into our hands in 1997 and we’re privileged to support one of our favourite illustrators in bringing the magic to a whole new generation. You can read more about Jim Kay and take a sneak peek at some of his beautiful illustrations, including his new design for Diagon Alley, on his website at jimkay.co.uk

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
