"A book to bring the magic of Harry Potter into every day of the year"
November 2021 Book of the Month |
You might have all the books, know the films by heart, even be the owner of a Hogwarts wand, but here’s something that will delight and also surprise even the most dedicated Harry Potter fan. From New Year’s Day to December 31st, it takes readers through the year, each daily entry featuring a specially selected quote or favourite anniversary from the novels. And on each and every page are Jim Kay’s extraordinary illustrations, both black and white and colour. His paintings and pencil drawings of Hogwarts and its inhabitants dazzle, whether they’re of a dragon lounging dangerously across the page, Dumbledore in close up, or the spires of the school itself, glimpsed through winter’s fading light. They make you feel you are there in the Harry Potter world and bring a whole new way of experiencing these well-known stories. It’s beautifully produced and really will bring some Potter magic into the everyday.
