I became smitten with the characters almost instantly. How imaginative the author is! The story is good for adults, too.
The artwork on the cover is so much better than the original book which is red. There are illustrations around the chapter headings too which adds a special something. The paper in this book is a lot firmer and of better quality. It's bigger in length than my original one by about 100 pages but that's probably just a printing difference. There isn't anything additional. I think there was a map in the front of mine but I 'm unsure.
Fab read of course.
My Granddaughter is 8yrs old but her 12 year old cousin has read all bar books 6 &7 and she thinks she can too. I'm sure if she finds them hard to understand then she will stop reading them. I'm happy she's reading, she's happy to read H.P. & the Philosophers Stone. All is well!
I just love this book right from the start and even though it isn't as exciting and edge of your seat as the other books are, yet there is that excitement you feel along with Harry in Chapter 4 when Hagrid turns up in the shack during the storm to give him the good news and I don't think any Harry Potter fan could ever fail to feel the excitement along with Harry as he and Hagrid go to Diagon Alley and he buys his books and other material he'll need for his time at Hogwarts. I love it when his vault at Gringots is opened and he sees all the money his parents have left him. I love the background we get to the Dursleys in the first chapter and the description of the day which eventually leads to his arrival at Privet Drive. As we read this book, we need to be aware how little Harry knows and we get an idea of how he's feeling as he awaits his sorting on his arrival at the school. As the Dursleys fight a losing battle when the letters start coming (and increasing with each delivery, ending with about a hundred at the hotel, you just know that, even though they're eventually in a place where Uncle Vernon's certain they won't be disturbed, that by hook or by crook Dumbledore will eventually get him to Hogwarts. As he tells Mrs Cole in Book 6, they'll be taking Tom Riddle away whatever. So Harry begins this roller coaster adventure throughout the seven books and he will not only need his friends but all the magical training he can get, especially in Defence against the dark arts which will be important as he must face the wizard who has not only attempted to kill him but has eluded capture by the Ministry of Magic.
