Just over nine years ago, Harry Potter, the boy who lived, and his friends Ron and Hermione, captured the hearts of millions of children.
Over the years, the readers grew up and so did Harry and the series itself – and nothing reflects this better than the books’ covers changing from cartoonish caricatures to more serious adult looking books.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
