The Perfect Gift
Although the Harry Potter books were originally written for children aged 9-12, readers of all ages have been entranced by the magical world of Hogwarts School. This complete set of all seven novels makes a treasured gift for those who already know and love the books or the perfect introduction to children who have not yet discovered their magic. The box, modelled on those the young wizards take with them to Hogwarts, comes complete with a privacy lock and handles.
The World’s Favourite Boy Wizard
When J. K. Rowling sat down in a café in Edinburgh to start writing about a boy who doesn’t know he’s a wizard, she could never in her wildest dreams have imagined the success her books would have. Published in 63 different languages and with over 325 million copies sold and counting. The seventh and final book in the series — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in which Harry faces his final showdown with the evil Lord Voldemort – completes this publishing phenomenon

Harry lives with his horrible aunt and uncle, the Dursleys, who force him to sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. One day, letters begin to arrive and in spite of everything the Dursleys do to stop them, Harry learns the truth: His parents did not die in a car crash, as the Dursleys told him — they were killed by an enormously powerful and evil magician — Lord Voldemort. Harry discovers that he himself is a wizard and now it is time to take his rightful place in the world of magic at the Hogwarts School of Wizardry. There, Harry makes friends with easy-going Ron, and know-it-all but loyal Hermione. He also finds an enemy in Draco Malfoy, whose family are suspected of being involved with Voldemort and his reign of terror. In the years that follow, Harry and his friends will face ever more desperate adventures as they confront Voldemort and his plans to return to power, a prospect so terrible that many wizards and witches cannot bear to face it.
