My Thoughts:

-    This is my favorite book in the series, and it was SO much fun to see it illustrated.

-    The pictures are amazing! I loved the drawings of Buckbeak, the characters, and the landscape. It was awesome!

-    Gnome was scared of some of the pictures. She had a nightmare about grindylows, and the dementors creeped her out. She really liked the story though. She especially loved the ending.

-    I love the new characters introduced in this book. This book and its characters are so pivotal in the series, and readers learn SO much. 

-    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that these versions of the book aren't translated. I love all the British lingo.

  1. I need these books! That’s sad the Gnome had nightmares though.

  2. This is my favorite story of the series but my favorite book is Deathly Hallows. But, yes, I love Azkaban so much!!! And the British lingo is the best. I'm excited to get the illustrated versions at some point.
