A special new edition in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, with a stunning new cover illustration by Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick.

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

It's not just the upcoming O.W.L. exams; a new teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a venomous, disgruntled house-elf; or even the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Now Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.

Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.

This gorgeous new edition in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone features a newly designed cover illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick, as well as the beloved original interior decorations by Mary GrandPré.

            I can only read the illustration version of Harry Potter so I have not read the fifth book. But I have got so many spoilers.

                  WARNING: SPOILERS INCLUDED After reading The Goblet of Fire, I thought the series could not get better. It did. And The Order of the Phoenix, where Harry faces the unreliability of pretty much the whole Wizarding World, has to top anyone's list of favorite books. Every chapter had a new surprise and the plot could not have gotten any better. It all starts when some dementors attack Harry, and using the Patronus Charm to defend himself almost causes his suspension from Hogwarts. This happens while Harry is trying to figure out why Dumbledore has shutted him from the rest of the Wizarding World, and happens when the Minister of Magic himself has created a rivalry with Dumbledore. Just when things couldn't possibly get worse, they do. At Hogwarts, a horrible Defense against the Dark Arts teacher awaits him (perhaps worse than Snape), and of course, Voldemort does too. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named had returned, and Harry feels like he is being used. That might just be true, but with Dumbledore shutting himself out, almost the whole Wizarding World against him, and more problems at Hogwarts, will Harry have what it takes to fight Voldemort, and more importantly, does he have to accept defeat this time around? Or will he once again step up and overcome Voldemort for the 5th time in the series?
