*Booklist, starred review * "Harry himself is the perfect confused and unassuming hero, whom trouble follows like a wizard's familiar. After reading this entrancing fantasy, readers will be convinced that they, too, could take the train to Hogwarts School, if only they could find Platform Nine and Three Quarters at the King's Cross Station."

If you are a parent and want to give one of the most amazing story to your child, or if, like me you're a fan of Harry Potter and want to give yourself a little something: it's a must have!
The whole text is in there alongside dozens of amazing drawings to make the story even more magical. This is only the first book, and all of the serie is going to be published like that. It is truly incredible, the art is stunning and a lot of time, love, dedication and talent was poured into this book.
The book is bigger then your regular pocket novel, it's about the size of an encyclopedia.
The first story is slower than the others but it's the first book in a long series, we kind of expect that, don't we? Harry and the gang are truly a lovable clang - I love Ron the most and it's not just because we share a birthday. I also find myself loving the dynamics of the character that is Draco Malfoy. He will be a character I know I will grow to love beyond words. I am interested to see who I become more connected too... despite any birthday connections or house connections (considering I am a Slytherin)
All in all, a joyous book. One I cannot wait to share with the kids in my life and for generations to come
