It doesn’t seem like 20 years have passed since I sat in my dorm room totally engrossed in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I remember this series as the first since my childhood that I just devoured. I couldn’t get enough. With each new title released, it felt like a homecoming of sorts as I was pulled back into the magical world J.K. Rowling had so carefully crafted.
Now I have kiddos of my own who have delved into these books and fallen in love with them the same way I did so many years ago. In honor of the 20th Anniversary of these books, they have now been released with new cover art by Brian Selznick. Selznick is a wonderful author/illustrator in his own right however his illustrations bring new life to this epic story for the next generation. If you want to check out the anniversary releases we now have them available for check out at MPL. Stop in for a look and fall in love with the books all over again!
