Picture The Magic by J.K. Rowling | Illustrated Sneak Peak

We're a few months away from the release of Picture The Magic by J.K. Rowling (Illustrated by Jim Kay), but Bloomsbury has treated fans to an illustration from the book! Check out this image:

Per the email Bloomsbury sent out about the image:

‘Harry was used to spiders, because the cupboard under the stairs was full of them, and that was where he slept.’ 
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, J.K. Rowling

With five months to go until publication, we have revealed another image from the eagerly anticipated Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Editionby J.K. Rowling, illustrated by Jim Kay. The image shows Harry Potter in the cupboard under the stairs where the Dursleys make him sleep.

Fiona Noble of the The Bookseller said: “I’m willing to call this the most handsome and desirable gift book of the year. It is stunning...with full colour illustrations throughout from Greenaway Medal winner Kay, who breathes incredible life into these much-loved characters and locations, staying faithful to Rowling’s vision but revitalising the story for a new generation.”

I can not wait to look through this book. My kids are at the age where they are all about Harry Potter, and I've loved experiencing Harry's world through their eyes. This book will definitely be a must have for fans of all ages. 


  1. I love the cover and the illustration that you provided. So beautiful!

  2. My first thought was "oooh! Must buy for my daughter!" But then I thought about how disappointed I always am when pictures in books or movies don't look like what I imagine. Now I'm torn. Even though I've seen the movies, (and been to Universal Orlando) some of the book looks different in my mind!


I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
