About the Giveaway
This is a beautiful book! Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: The Illustrated Edition is obviously a labor of love by the artist, Jim Kay.
Of this new edition, J.K. Rowling said, ‘Seeing Jim Kay’s illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry’s world, and I feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talent to it.’
I have met many parents who like to read books with their children, and the Harry Potter series has become a quick classic. A generation of children fell in love with these books.
When I was a children’s library clerk at a public elementary school, the hardbound editions of these books were constantly cycled in and out. It didn’t hurt that each was worth a ton of AR points. You’ll never guess which one was the most popular. It didn’t even matter if the student had already read the other books–the mammoth tome called to him, the AR points dancing in his head. He could knock out his required number of points with a single book!
Harry Potter is beloved by adults, too: those who have grown from children who read the series to adults who read it again and again; adults who started as adults and retained or recovered the child-like wonder provided by Rowling’s characters. Adults sometimes feel embarrassed to talk about their love of “children’s literature.” We want you to feel free to talk about the book and the series freely.
Our giveaway is for everybody. If answering any of the question makes you uncomfortable, recognize that there are five other entry points that can be acquired. The final question might make some people uncomfortable; participate in the elements that make you comfortable!
We’ve all got our quirks; forgive our contest runner’s.
