Some 450 million physical books from the Harry Potter series have been sold throughout the world. Each was adapted for the cinema and translated into 80 languages. And now, Muggles everywhere can experience the stories in a brand-new way with the release of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone" on Amazon’s Kindle in Motion technology. The book features the work of illustrator Jim Kay—who created the renowned 2015 illustrated print edition—with the addition of motion to many of his images.
In the new eBooks, readers can watch for themselves while the Sorting Hat’s patchwork smile crinkles as it assigns Harry to his Hogwarts house, the wall of potions bubbles and boils in Professor Snape’s office, and shadows dance ominously in the darkness of the Forbidden Forest.
