Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets HC (2016 A Scholastic Novel) Illustrated Edition comic books
1st printing. Written by J. K. Rowling. Art and cover by Jim Kay. Award-winning artist Jim Kay illustrates year two of Harry's adventures at Hogwarts. 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. 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 possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects, Harry Potter himself? Hardcover, 9-in. x 11-in., 256 pages, text (with full color Chapter Illustrations). Cover price $39.99.
