There's not a lot I can say about this book. I've loved the Harry Potter series from the beginning and I so excited when I saw this edition in my local bookstore. The illustrations are amazing and so detailed. I read the book straight through and then went back to examine the illustrations more closely. The pages of Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts Express are probably my favorite out of all the drawings. The illustrator really managed to capture the magic of the wizarding world in the pages of this book.
