There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? It's not just the upcoming O.W.L. exams; a new teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a venomous, disgruntled house-elf; or even the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Now Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts. Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.
This stunning illustrated edition brings together the talents of award-winning artists Jim Kay and Neil Packer in a visual feast, featuring iconic scenes and much loved characters Tonks, Luna Lovegood, and many more as the Order of the Phoenix keeps watch over Harry Potter’s fifth year at Hogwarts. Special features of this deluxe collector’s edition include a generously oversized clothbound book in a slipcase with intricate gold foil stamping; high quality paper with gilt edges; two ribbon bookmarks; a special art print; and a bespoke packing carton an impressive gift for Harry Potter fans and book lovers of all ages.
