For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.
Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts... he's at Hogwarts."
Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may be a traitor in their midst.
This gorgeous new edition in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone features a newly designed cover illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick, as well as the beloved original interior decorations by Mary GrandPré.

Kandi & Jerry Bostic
Thank you everyone for visiting our site, and eventually our store. I, Jerry, worked and managed the old Hastings in Ardmore for 11 years from 1999-2010. After leaving in 2010, Hastings never left my heart, or how I went about managing other things throughout the course of the last 11 years. I have so many memories of the store that I can't imagine going back into retail in this fashion and not paying homage to the brand that taught me so much about managing and life. Sharing this venture with my significant other is a dream come true, and we can't wait to show you what we believe Hastings would look like in 2021 and beyond, through Hastings Toys and more!
