Praise for Jim Kay's illustrations:
"I love seeing Jim Kay's interpretation of Harry Potter's world, and I feel honored and grateful that he continues to lend his talent to it." -- J.K. Rowling
"It's all that an old-fashioned book aficionado could wish for . . . Is this, one wonders, the sort of book found at Diagon Alley's Flourish and Blotts or in the Hogwarts library? Kay's illustrations, freshly re-envisioning the story, range from spot images to dramatic double page spreads, all pulsating with color and vitality. This gorgeous volume is sure to please all, from Harry Potter neophytes to longtime fans." -- New York Times Book Review
