A perfect book for both hardcore fans and new readers. As Harry waits impatiently at his unbearable aunt and uncle's house for the start of the second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, an elf appears in his room and warns him that a deadly threat is looming over the school.

Harry doesn't think twice and, accompanied by Ron, heads to Hogwarts in a flying car. There, Harry hears strange whispers in the deserted corridors and suddenly ... the attacks begin. The elf's sinister prediction seems to come true. Jim Kay, winner of the Kate Greenaway Award, depicts the wizarding world in great detail in this illustrated edition of the second title in the J.K. Rowling.

J.K. Rowling said “Jim Kay's illustrations touched me deeply. I love his interpretation of the world of Harry Potter, and I am truly honored that he has brought his talents to this new edition. " ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Award-winning artist Jim Kay illustrates year two of Harry Potter's adventures at Hogwarts, in a stunning, gift-ready format.

The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And strike it does.

For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone - or something - starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects ... Harry Potter himself?

About J. K. Rowling:

Joanne Rowling (Yacht, July 31, 1965), who writes under the pseudonyms JK Rowling and Robert Galbraith, is a British writer, film producer and screenwriter, known for being the author of the Harry Potter series of books, which have exceeded five hundred million copies sold.

This literary success led the 2008 Sunday Times Rich List to estimate Rowling's fortune at £ 560 million, making her the 12th richest woman in the UK. In addition, Forbes ranked Rowling 40th on its list of the most powerful celebrities of 2007, and Time magazine selected her as "Person of the Year" in the same year, highlighting the social, moral and political inspiration she has given them. Harry Potter characters.

Rowling is a well known philanthropist who supports charities such as Comic Relief, One Parent Families, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Great Britain.

In June 1990, he traveled by train from Manchester to London, the train had problems and the trip was delayed for four hours. During that event, he got the idea of ​​a wizarding school. “Suddenly, the idea of ​​Harry just popped into my imagination.

I can't say why, or what triggered it, but I saw the idea of ​​Harry and the wizarding school very clearly. Suddenly, I had the basic idea of ​​a boy who didn't know who he was, who didn't know that he was a wizard until he received an invitation to attend a magic school. I've never been so excited about an idea.  

I don't know where the idea came from, ”she told the Boston Globe,“ It started with Harry, and then all the characters and situations came to the fore in my head.  When he got to his Clapham Junction apartment, he began writing immediately. That same year his mother died.

It was a very hard blow for her, because he was the only person who supported her in her ideas of being a writer, after struggling for ten years with multiple sclerosis. Rowling commented 'I was writing Harry Potter at the time my mother died. I was never able to tell her about Harry Potter. Rowling said that his passing profoundly affected her work as a writer, and that she included much more detail about Harry's loss in the first book, because she knew how she felt.

Rowling subsequently moved to Porto (Portugal) to work as an English teacher. Her During her stay in Porto, she met and fell in love with Jorge Arantes, a Portuguese journalist. Despite Jorge's infidelities, Joanne married him on October 16, 1992.

Their daughter, Jessica Isabel Rowling Arantes (named in honor of Jessica Mitford), was born on July 27, 1993 in Portugal. After the Jorge's infidelities and alcoholism, Rowling abandoned him in November of the same year her daughter was born and moved with her to Edinburgh (Scotland), the city where her sister lived.

In March 1994, Rowling began the judicial process for an interdiction lawsuit - the equivalent in Scotland of a restraining order - against Jorge Arantes, obtaining a provisional order that would be renewed eight months later, already in November 1994.

In this Rowling suffered from clinical depression and even considered suicide, but her daughter Jessica gave her the strength to carry on. It was the feeling of her illness that gave her the idea of ​​dementors, the soulless creatures that appear in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. In August 1994, the writer formally filed for divorce.

Unemployed and living off state subsidies, Rowling completed her first novel by writing in various cafes, especially in the Nicolson, 41 each time she managed to make Jessica fall asleep.

In a BBC interview from In 2001, Rowling denied the rumor that she was writing in local cafes to escape her unheated apartment, noting, 'I'm not stupid enough to rent an unheated apartment in Edinburgh in the dead of winter. It had heating. Instead, she stated on the US television show A&E Biography that one of the reasons she wrote in cafes was that taking her baby for a walk was the best way to put her to sleep.

Finally, in June 1995, the until then provisional injunction against Jorge Arantes became permanent and the divorce petition was admitted.

In 1995, Rowling finished her manuscript for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on an old typewriter. To the enthusiastic response of Bryony Evans, a reader who had been commissioned to review the first three chapters of the book, the Christopher Little Agency Literary Agents agreed to represent Rowling in her search for a publisher.

The book was sent to twelve publishers, who rejected the manuscript. A year later, it finally received approval (and an advance of £ 1,500) from publisher Barry Cunningham for Bloomsbury, a small British publisher in London, England.

The decision to publish Rowling's book was apparently made by Alice Newton, the eight-year-old daughter of the Bloomsbury president, who received the first chapter for review and immediately requested the second. Yes While Bloomsbury agreed to publish the book, Cunningham says he suggested Rowling get a job, as he believed she had little chance of making money from children's books.

Shortly thereafter, in 1997, Rowling received a £ 8,000 scholarship from the Scottish Arts Council to allow him to continue writing. The following spring an auction was held in the United States for the rights to publish the novel, which was won by Scholastic Inc. for $ 105,000. Rowling said that she "almost she dies" when she found out about it.
