It has taken me awhile to get around to posting this for several reasons, but I still wanted to post in nonetheless. I still love Harry Potter (despite not being fond of the author anymore) and still want to share my love of the book series with others. Before anyone asks/brings it up- I didn’t purchase this book, meaning none of my money went into JKR’s pocket. This book was gifted to me by a dear friend as a get well soon gift before I underwent surgery to remove kidney stones from my left kidney. I know the purchasing of Harry Potter merchandise is still a no go for most people, but I have no control over what people gift me! So with that being said, let’s take a look at the newest edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!
I really like the cover art for this book because the flying car is one of the best scenes in the movie. I’m not too fond of the shade of green they used, but with there being a heavy emphasis on the Slytherin house in this book, I understand the color choice.
The illustrations for Dobby are absolutely adorable! These are my two favorites, so I had to include them!
I love the full page illustrations in this book. The Deathday Party is my favorite one. The Valentine’s Day Party is so obnoxious and pink, it looks like love threw up everywhere! The details in the full page illustrations are incredible and the color choices are amazing as well!
All the illustrations in this book are amazing. The pull out/interactive illustrations are always incredible, my favorite being the Mandrake that you can pull out of its pot! And I love both Fawkes illustrations because they really show the transformation a Phoenix goes through!
And of course, this post wouldn’t be complete without a picture of the man, the myth, the fraud, Gilderoy Lockhart. All the illustrations of him really capture the character and his traits. Some of them are hilarious, but I don’t want to give him too much attention and inflate his already oversized ego!
So that’s a small look at the newest edition if Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! I hope everyone has a great week! There are most post to come before the end of 2021, so keep an eye out for them!
