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.

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, by J. K. Rowling, tells the magical story of Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s journey to the Department of Mysteries thinking that Harry’s godfather, Sirius Black, was getting tortured by Voldemort. Harry saves his cousin from dementors during the summer using magic, but using magic in front of muggles is against the law. Then Tonks, Moody, Kingsley, and Lupin and some others escort Harry to Number 12 Grimmauld Place because Harry needed to get to his hearing early and they couldn’t get him on the day of his hearing. Harry learns about the Order of the Phoenix the night he comes during dinner. A while later, Arthur takes Harry to work with him the day of the hearing. In the hearing, it is decided that Harry did not use his magic improperly. When he comes back from his hearing, they get their Hogwarts letters. Hermione and Ron get Prefect badges with their letters. Soon after, they get on the Hogwarts train and go to school. Dolores Umbridge was the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher for Harry’s fifth year. She is from the Ministry of Magic. She banned all defensive spells on Fudge’s, the Minister of Magic, demand. Fudge thinks that Dumbledore is planning an attack on the Ministry. So, Harry gathers some friends and starts a Defence group. Harry has been having dreams about Voldemort since his first year at Hogwarts. Now, Harry is having dreams that Voldemort is torturing Sirius. Harry believes that the dreams are real because earlier that year, he dreamt that Ron’s dad was attacked by a snake, and he was. The Harry Potter series is very exciting. You never know what will happen next. I really liked this book. If you like magic and adventure, you will, too! To find out what really happened to Sirius, read the book!

              out of all the harry potter books this is the ONLY one i am rating it lower than 5 stars, being honest, it was a bit too long, and i prefer the movie better... but this books is still good, i love how it shows Cornius Fudge's true colors, DESPRET FOR POWER and UMBRIDGE is the most ANNOYING charater in HISTORY OF BOOKS

                Okay, I am only giving this one 4 stars because first of all, Sirius Dies (srry 4 the spoiler) and Harry is always annoyed in this one.
