JK Rowling's bestselling boy wizard is due for a makeover, with the launch of award-winning illustrator Jim Kay's fully-illustrated edition of Harry Potter in 2015.

The first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is slated for publication in September 2015, and publisher Bloomsbury will release each of the subsequent titles annually, re-creating the original publishing schedule which started in London in 1997, and so successfully developed readers as they, and Harry and friends, grew older together.

Illustrator Kay has reimagined Harry for a new generation of readers, in a style that nods to Daniel Radcliffe’s portrayal of the boy wizard in the film versions of the novels, and captures the character of Harry in the books.”

It wasn’t that my dresses were too short,
Or my sentences too long.
It wasn’t that my hair was blue,
And my mascara smudged,
It wasn’t that my laugh was too loud,
And my voice too quiet.

No,
It was that I didn’t apologize
For the things you didn’t like.

I wore my skirts with pride,
And fired my sentences at warp speed,
I died my hair blue again, then green,
I let my mascara ghost my eyes
And I laughed, laughed, laughed,
And sometimes - I just stayed quiet.

No,
What really bothered you
Weren’t the imperfections,
It was the confidence that let me love them,
It was the independence that let me embrace them,
It was the strength that let me be who I am.

You didn’t mind that my voice was quiet,
You minded that I didn’t stutter.

“Aquariuses like Mr. Dickens are supposed to be humanitarians. Most Aquarians that I have known do tend to act much like Mr. Dickens, and try to BEAT YOU TO DEATH WITH HOW GODDAMNED HUMANITARIAN THEY ARE. Seriously.”
