"The Dark Lord lies alone and friendless, abandoned by his followers. His servant has been chained these twelve rears. Tonight, before midnight, the servant will break free and set out to rejoin his malter." After a magical mishap of gigantic proportions, Harry Potter escapes from the Dursleys and Little Whinging on the Knight Bus, expecting to face serious trouble. But the Ministry of Magic has bigger fish to fry — Sirius Black, infamous prisoner and loyal follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run from Azkaban fortress. They say he is coming after Harry, and the Minister for Magic has sent the Dementors of Azkaban to prowl the school grounds with their terrifying, soul-sucking Kiss. In his third year at Hogwarts, dark rumours and death omens pursue Harry as he learns new truths about his past and comes face to face with one of the most devoted servants of the Dark Lord ... The eagerly awaited Illustrated Edition of the third book in J. K. Rowling's classic series is bursting with magical moments conjured from paint, pencil and pixels by Kate Greenaway winner Jim Kay.
