Let me tell you how I came to know Harry Potter. It'll be short, I promise.
I was living with my grandparents, and my grandma's coworker had given her a box of books. I looked through them, and one of the books was called "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." I'd never heard of it, but it looked pretty interesting. So, I read it. In one night. Inside the front cover was information about a second book. So, the next day, I went to Target, and there it was: "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." I was hooked.
As soon as the rest of the books came out, I was there. As soon as the movies were being shown, I was there. If it's "Harry Potter Weekend" on ABC Family, I'm watching (even though I own all 5 movies on DVD).
Now, here's the fun part!
The Harry Potter Series is turning 10 this year!!! To commemorate, a new version of "The Sorcerer's Stone" has been designed. Features include the following:
- New Jacket artwork by Mary GrandPre
- Additional four-color frontispiece artwork from Mary GrandPre
