Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: The Illustrated Edition

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's StoneHarry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
By J. K. Rowling, newly illustrated by Jim Kay

For the first time, J.K. Rowling’s beloved Harry Potter books will be presented in lavishly illustrated full-color editions. Kate Greenaway-award-winning artist Jim Kay has created over 100 stunning illustrations, making this deluxe format a perfect gift as much for a child being introduced to the series, as for the dedicated fan.

Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility.

All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley – a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry’s room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn’t had a birthday party in eleven years.

By Esphyr Slobodkina, with Ann Marie Sayer

The beloved classic Caps for Sale is now celebrating its 75th anniversary with a brand-new sequel featuring the caps peddler and those mischievous monkeys, now with even more monkey business in store!

In Caps for Sale, the peddler woke up from an afternoon nap to discover a tree full of monkeys all wearing his caps. Well, he got his caps back, but the story doesn’t end there!

When More Caps for Sale begins, it is later that same day and the peddler starts his walk home. He does not look back. He does not notice monkeys following him. Right foot, left foot, right foot, left foot. All in step.

Now they are sitting in the tree in the peddler’s backyard. Those monkeys!

The peddler is about to have another extraordinary adventure. True to their nature, the sixteen monkeys that make up the Caps for Sale troop mimic the peddler, but this time good things just might happen.

Filled with warmth and humor, this easy-to-read book is perfect for early readers and follows the same great folktale tradition as the original Caps for Sale.
