Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone By J. K. Rowling
‘Potter, did she say?’
‘The Harry Potter?’
Life isn’t much fun at number four Privet Drive, at least not for Harry Potter, living under the stairs in a cupboard full of spiders, but all of that is about to change. On the eve of Harry’s eleventh birthday the letters start arriving; letters written in emerald green ink on yellowing parchment with an unmistakable letter H on purple wax seals.
Because Harry Potter is no ordinary boy, he is the boy who lived, the wizard whose name everyone in the magical world knows and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin and life for Harry Potter will never be the same again.
So pick up your broomstick, have your wand at the ready.
Waterstones invites you to Join Harry as he discovers the magical world for the very first time at the start of this incredible, multi-award-winning series.
This is where the magic begins!
Harry Potter has been at the heart of Waterstones since the first copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone came into our hands. We’re delighted to share these new editions of the series, now entirely reimagined by one of our favourite writers and illustrators, Jonny Duddle.
