Overview


The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone -- or something -- starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself?

 

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Juman Malouf
I think Rowling has found her perfect match in Kay. He renders her elaborate vision in numerous vivid styles and variations. Some look like drawings from a dog-eared book of magic, some look like framed portraits by a Renaissance master, some look like stills from a movie…The illustrations I like best are the ones that catch you off-guard: a pencil sketch of Hermione in the library, a pastel of Hogwarts on a wintry night. This illustrated series will introduce Harry Potter to a younger audience. The very littlest ones might even look over the shoulder of an older sister or brother and be seduced by the glossy and masterly illustrations.
