With paint, pencil and pixels, Kay conjures the wizarding world as we have never seen it before. Fizzing with magic, enchanting strangeness and brimming with humour, this full-colour edition will captivate fans and new readers alike as Harry, now in his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, faces Dementors, death omens and – of course – danger.
There’s a murderer on the loose and he has his sights set on Harry Potter; the boy who lived is in danger once more. Harry has never heard of notorious mass-murderer Sirius Black when he runs away from home one summer night, with only his owl, Hedwig, and his school trunk. But before he knows it, Harry is whisked away on the Knight Bus (“emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard”) and finds himself screeching towards The Leaky Cauldron and his next year at Hogwarts. But the shade of ‘The Grim’, the worst wizarding omen of death, is following him and nowhere is safe, not even Hogwarts. For the school is being guarded by fearsome Dementors, the guards of Azkaban prison, waiting to suck out the souls of the living with their terrifying kiss. Nothing is certain in a world where even time itself may not be what it seems.
Baffling Boggarts, portentous tea-leaves, silver stags and a soaring journey on Hippogriff wings await you, if you dare to turn the page.
