Scholastic and Bloomsbury Release New HARRY POTTER Illustrated Editions

Scholastic and Bloomsbury have a new illustrated edition of the first HARRY POTTER book!

If you like to collect new editions of your favorite books, prepare for a treat! Scholastic and Bloomsbury released new illustrated editions for HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE / HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE.

The cover shows Harry looking amazed as he stands next to The Hogwarts Express and takes it the chaos on Platform 9 3/4 for the first time. While the illustration itself is the same on both covers, the name change on either side of the pond was taken consideration for the joint debut.
