First Look at Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated

Available to Pre-Order now

When Jim Kay illustrated the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone story a couple of years ago we were promised one new book in the series every year. At the end of last year Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was released and many fans felt the illustrations just got better and better, and today we have the first look at the third book in the Harry Potter Franchise as we get an illustrated look at the Prisoner of Azkaban.

The exclusive reveal happened this morning on Pottermore, to coincide with the cover reveal of the book by Bloomsbury and Scholastic. Here’s a look at that cover, featuring the Knight Bus.

True to promise, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban will be released in October, a year after the second book in the series. It’s the third book to be interpreted in Kay’s unique style.

Those who have the first two books will know what to expect, rich images and detailed illustrations that often step away from the movie depictions. For the Prisoner of Azkaban you can expect more depictions of Hogwarts Professors, here’s Professor Snape and the remaining images released today, but this book sees the introduction of Professor Trelawney and Sirius Black too, characters I can’t wait to see the depiction of.

The series has proved hugely popular with fans of the series, and made the books perfect chapter books to read with small children.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, fully illustrated is available on pre-order now at your local bookshop, or online.
