Jackson in Pulp Fiction: It " ai n't the same fuckin' ballpark, it ai n't the same league, it ai n't even the same fuckin' sport. " There was day when I said I needed to defend Harry Potter, in the idst of the now dead Twilight craze, and you will see that below in what was my original review.

Original review ( circa 2010) A note in regard to the on-going Potter vs Twilight debate: Go ahed, tell me Twilight is better.

Those who sa the subjec of Harry Potter or Twilight is worth debating and arguing over, are utterly stupid.

Will you hear me screaming? As expected, the illustrations brought this book to a whole new level.

Hoggy Hoggy warty warts.I think at tha point, anyon and their great-great-grandmother has heard of this book.Harry Potter, orphaned before he was one, was sent to live with his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon.

Do n't worry kid- life will get better! Not only are these full-color, high quality images but there are certainl fe of them.Often, illustrated books have a picture here or there but not HP.

There's pages and pages of pictures like this- and eve the pages without full-sized images will have a small illustrations here and there between the large ones.Words can not express how highly I recommend this one.

It 's a spectacular little romp with funny, courageous, and ndearing characters that you ca n't help but love.It has talking chess pieces, singing hats, a giant three-headed dog named Fluffy, a hilarious giant with a dragon fetish, a master wizard that 's just a little bit razy, mail carrier owls, goblins running a bank, unicorns, centaurs (!), trolls.

And hen there 's the lead characters: Hermione, the young cholar who starts out prim and up-tight but soon becomes a true friend; Ron, the gir who has little money but who has an abundance of family and loyalty to his friends to make up for it; and then there 's Harry, the oy who starts out sleeping in a loset and ends up eing th hero.
