Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Illustrated) product reviews

The fourth book in the beloved Harry Potter series, now illustrated in glorious full color by award-winning artist Jim Kay.
Harry Potter wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for a hundred years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. Unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal " even by wizarding standards. And in this case, different can be deadly.
With dazzling illustrations from Jim Kay, this new fully illustrated edition of the complete and unabridged text of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is sure to delight fans and first-time readers alike.

After the first three Harry Potter books came out a year after each other, this book led to a two year wait... but that did help prove how enjoyed and anticipated the illustrated editions are when I would be met with disappointment from customers when they asked about it and first I couldn't give them a release date and then this led to the news of it being a two year wait, I too eagerly counted down and a benefit of working in a bookshop... I got my hands on my copy before anyone else. The cover gives a gorgeous tease to the three tasks that await Harry and the others in book number four.

Jim Kay does a good job making some of the characters and creatures appear far scarier and creepier than my imagination or the movies ever did. A two year wait for this book did lead me to feel a little let down illustration wise, when it came to quantity but his illustrations hold up next to the previous books, so at least that didn't let me down. There is a two page spread for the ball and I really like how different everyone looks and the little details on the clothes each character wears. There are six lovely illustrations of the various dragons that are involved, Mr12 thought they looked fantastic. A favourite entry in the book is the Beauxbaton carriage and horses, that's one picture I'd happily have on my wall.

Another fabulous installment to the illustrated Harry Potter books, here's hoping the next wait isn't as long.

Product image for Star Wars Jedi Academy #4: A New ClassMy name is Victor Starspeeder, and I was so psyched that I had transferred to THE Jedi Academy! I didn't care that my big sister, Christina, was already here, and she said I would cramp her style. My last school sent me here because they said I needed "boundaries and structure." I thought that structure meant I'd get to do crazy Jedi stuff, but Master Yoda told me, "to the theater, we go. Drama Club, you will join!" Now I've ... more...
