Harry Potter


@ Your Library

by Beverly Ewart



Last week, during Harry Potter week at CFL, we received two more illustrated volumes of the Harry Potter series. These books are a collaboration between J.K Rowling and the talented illustrator, Jim Kay. Although the original series lives on the shelves of our Young Adult section, you may find these treasures downstairs in the Children’s Room.  Jim Kay’s illustrations serve as a bridge that can give a younger reader entry into the magical world of Hogwarts, and may also inspire a desire to acquire a more extensive vocabulary so that they can better understand the story behind the pictures!


  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: [The Illustrated Edition] by J.K. Rowling ; illustrated by Jim Kay.  Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.

  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: [The Illustrated Edition] by J.K. Rowling; illustrated by Jim Kay.  When the Chamber of Secrets is opened again at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, second-year student Harry Potter finds himself in danger from a dark power that has once more been released on the school.

  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: [The Illustrated Edition] by J.K. Rowling; illustrated by Jim Kay.  During his third year at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter must confront the dangerous wizard responsible for his parents' deaths.
