Kids can enter the wizarding world with this innovative edition of the first book in the iconic series, which is designed and illustrated by the award-winning design studio MinaLima Design, best known for creating the visual graphic style of the Harry Potter film franchise.
The book includes brilliant, colorful illustrations on nearly every page, as well as eight interactive papercraft features fit for any witch or wizard. Kids can open the elaborately folded Hogwarts letter (finally, the letter kids have been waiting for); see a Diagon Alley shopping list; reveal the magical entryway to Diagon Alley; open a die-cut, fold-out Hogwarts Castle; make a sumptuous feast appear in the Great Hall; and more.
“This new edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the perfect way to start a new generation of readers on their Hogwarts journey, and at the same time is sure to be a treasured keepsake for fans to add to their collection,” says Ellie Berger, president of Scholastic trade. “The Harry Potter series continues to inspire readers of all ages with its universal themes of friendship, imagination, and the triumph of good over evil.”
The Hermione-approved book will be available on Oct. 20 for $37.99. Check your go-to bookstore for availability.
