Y everyone on the planet has ead the Harry Potter books by now so I m not going to give this book a traditional eview I only want to talk about my eading experience with the illustrated edition of The Prisoner of AzkabanMore than any other books the Harry Potter Series spurred my love of eading There were times in my life when I felt too busy or burdened to ead but I would always make time each summer for these books as they eleased I uite literally grew up with the characters eading the books at the same age as the characters were I ead the first book in 2000 when I was ten and The Deathly Hallows the summer after my senior year of high school Even from childhood I knew I wanted to share these books with my own children someday and have been waiting for the time when they would be old enough to comprehend the stories Luckily the books illustrated by Jim Kay were the perfect way to begin these books a little earlier with my young childrenWe have a tradition going though my kids know the movies inside and out I m being a bit of a mean mom and making my kids wait to ead the books as the illustrated editions come out We are at the mercy of Jim Kay s talent waiting until the Goblet of Fire is eleased in its illustrated form to continue with the series I also don t let my kids flip ahead to sneak peeks at the pictures Each time we turn the page a surprise is waiting for us on the other side This makes eading the series even fun than I expected as we want to ead to and just to look at the gorgeous artworkI was most excited to ead The Prisoner of Azkaban because it s my favorite book of the entire series The Moony Wormtail Padfoot and Prongs evelation blew my mind as a kid and I couldn t wait for my kids to experience it toosince it s unfortunately left out of the movie adaptation As we crept toward the end of the story my daughter was begging me to continue eading until my voice was so hoarse I had to stop As I hoped she was nearly as excited about the ending of the story as I was as a childI m extremely grateful for these moments sharing my own childhood favorites with my kids thanks to JK Rowling and Jim Kay The books and the memories they have fostered will be forever cherished My husband tried to surpri.

Se me with this order but we share the account I WAS surprised though because I didn t ealize it would be textbook size with all these amazing scenes drawn out They e AH MAY ZING drawings If you love Harry Potter you will love these books For some eason hubs couldn t find the first and second of the series I did p so he bought the third first but we know the stories by heart so it doesn t matter to me I hope they put out all of them It almost feels like how I felt waiting for the actual series to come out Re eading doesn t feel like e eading when there are brand new details to catch my attention and things to focus on which I hadn t noticed before I wanted the illustrated books because I already loved the originals but until I ead them I never would have imagined that having this wonderful artwork could give such a e energized charge to the experience I ve ead the first three now and am deeply impressed I LOVE THE STORY Illustrations are great PROBLEM is that the book came missing pages 153 168 because 137 152 were printed twice It took me a week to ealize this You will want to check your books I m sure will take care of me but thank goodness I wasn t gifting this As a epeat eader of the Harry Potter series I was excited to add this lovely book to my collection However I was surprised to see the number of typographical errors I have always found it annoying when I suddenly have to stop and figure out what s wrong with the sentence Some of what appear to be typos are British spelling which is okay but I just wasn t expecting it And while the coloring and shading is attractive it is hard to ead the print at times because the glossy pages eflect light and euire moving the book to where the words can be ead Perhaps it is meant to be only a coffee table book The wife loves anything potter and I love when they go on sale I m glad every holiday season I find these on discount Saves me a few dozen bucks The book itself are all amazing The books are eally thick and heavy The drawings are amazing and detailed and help to almost tell part of the stories These aren t some little sketches to just give you an idea what the story its about It s almost like paintings telling their own stories The wife loves them. Kaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep He's at Hogwarts he's at HogwartsHarry Potter isn't safe not even within the walls of his magical school surrounded by his friends Because on top of it all there may well be a traitor in their mids.
