Great book

Well this is a great book what more can I say I had learned to read when I was 15 mostly b/c for some silly reason the army school system thought site reading was a better way to teach kids to read but for me it did not work and the CA school system just did not want to teach me at all so ya but it seems that a home school teacher in AL was what it took for me to finally learn to read and the very first book I read was Harry Potter and the sorcerer stone.
I read this book much later on in my life and would most certainly recommend it to my friends for there kids or for them if there into harry potter.

Enjoy the book and enjoy reading in general ;).

I love this book I only wish I had gotten it sooner because it helped put other smaller stories within the major series into perspective.

Great addition to the HP Canon!

Very nicely written and illustrated by J.K.Rowling herself. Especially entertaining are Dumbledore's notes on each story. We have the original British edition, which has a different cover and layout than the U.S. edition, but somehow feels more "authentic." Reader beware, however - "The Warlock's Hairy Heart" might prove a bit gruesome for younger audiences. We skipped the ending when reading it to our seven-year-old son.

Tatles of Beedle the Bard

Another great book by J.K. Rowling, as if she writes any other kind! I purchased this book as a Christmas gift for my son and he was thrilled. The book arrived in great time and condition, I have been really impressed with Alibris for their stock and handling of all my orders. As far as I am concerned there is no where else to shop for books.
