The first three books in the Harry Potter series, gorgeously illustrated in full color by Jim Kay, now available in a collectible boxed set!
British author J. K. Rowling took the world by storm with her series of fantasy novels featuring Harry Potter, seven books which chronicled the lives of a young, orphaned wizard, Harry Potter, and his best friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley–the three of whom all met at their school, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry struggles to find his place in a world he never knew existed, come to terms with the secrets his family left behind, and ultimately battle a dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, who wishes to overthrow the Ministry of Magic, the government body which oversees of all things magic, and become immortal to enslave both magical and non-magical people (also known as Muggles).
It contains the first three books in the series (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) in large-scale editions, gorgeously illustrated in full color by award-winning artist Jim Kay. These editions are a pleasure to read, with generously sized pages, color on every page, and a ribbon bookmark in each volume. A full-color slipcase featuring red foiled lettering and Kay's brilliant depiction of Diagon Alley completes the package, making this collection a luxurious gift for readers and Harry Potter fans of all ages.
