Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

The illustrated version of the first Harry Potter book contains wonderful images that brings the story to life in your head. The recurring images in this book are the splatters and blotches on the page. This creates the effect that what you are reading is in fact manuscript paper. The images and text are consistent because the illustrations relate to the text beside/on the other page. These illustrations enhance the text because of their artistic beauty and quality within them. Plus the way they sum up all the mythical monsters and creatures of the wizards' world. The wonderful images make a great book even greater! My favourite illustration is on page 204-205 of a unicorn.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I found I could not put it down. I had never thought about reading any Harry Potter books previously although I had watched some of the films. But when I finished reading this one it spurred me on to try and read all of them!
My main lasting impression of this book are the characters within the story, like, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione.
I learnt from this book that friendship is a powerful thing and that you should not hate someone because they are different.
