    thank you for this omg <3

    I see the next book is pre order $40, are they doing the whole range?

    • I would assume so, hence I'm going to wait until the whole range is released.
      Otherwise its going to cost you at least $84 ($12x7 books)

      • Let's hope it sells and they don't stop on the third book for eg.

    • Yes they are, but only releasing one per year,

  • +8

    Thanks OP. Good on you for posting something which makes you feel regret :)
    Booktopia cancelled my last order due to low stock (and it asked me to contact them to organise a refund :/)
    Hopefully this one will be okay.

      It's pre-order, this one has been out for a while.

    • Only one has been released. There will be one book released per year, so a long time before they are all out.

  • Thank you so much OP :)

  • Ordered. Thanks!

    • I saw that after going through Booko, but is there actually a place to enter the code?

      • +2

        During the payment section of the checkout, under order summary this is a section labelled Gift Certificate, Store Credit and Promotional Code where the code can be added.

        • +1

          Wow, even with your instructions I had trouble spotting it.
          Must have been under a Fidelius Charm, and you were the secret keeper :)
          I added details and code to the description.

    Seems way too cheap, will probably not be honored. Especially if people order lots to resell (as they always do, sigh). But I ordered one as a gift. Fingers crossed.

  • +5

    Rarely did I buy something that I needed less, yet am looking forward to receive more. :-)

  • bought one just because it was bargain… will probably re-gift it for a birthday.

  • Thanks so much! Hope it will be honored!

  • I went back in and checked the order status.. It's been updated and saying they're expecting stock on 24th May. That seems hopeful. It just says 15 business days on the book's page.

    • Mine now says expecting stock on Jun 14 - 16.

  • Amazing deal, got myself a few gifts sorted. Thanks OP!

  • awesome deal - thanks OP bought one for the kids

  • +1

    Hopefully they cancel any orders of like 4+ and honour all the single purchases!
    For my sister :) Easy win on this gift!
    Thanks OP, fingers crossed, sorry about your $40.

  • Thank you, great deal!

  • Ripper deal. Thanks OP!

  • Is it abridged?

    • +3

      Nope. It's a pretty big book actually, with all the illustrations. If they keep doing them, books 4-7 are going to be massive.

  • Thank you very much OP.

  • +1

    Hopefully the deal has not been ozbargained and they still have stock.

    Thanks Op. It's $11.28 with 6% cashback from Cashrewards.

  • Thanks OP. My kids will love it.

  • Thanks OP, great find :)

    I don't even like Harry Potter and I'm buying this. Damn OZB.

  • Is it showing "More stock arriving soon" for anyone when you ordered, even though your order went through successfully?

    • Yes, mine did. Fingers crossed!

    • A bit worried about that too, hopefully they won't cancel the order. I don't mind waiting 15 days :)

  • Thank you! ❤️

  • Awesome

    I didn't buy this book (because I thought what's the point of a picture book harry potter when you can imagine it yourself) but I bought a whole lot of cheap childrens books for my toddler and took advantage of free shipping so I'm very happy with the price!

    Thanks for posting

    • Beautiful illustrations are a pleasure to look at. And I love imagining the characters as close as possible to the writer's original mental image.

  • +2

    Got one thanks! Now I have to see if they are going to cancel my order ….

  • +1 for OP!

    Got one for myself and one for the sister-in-law!

  • Birthday presents sorted, thanks OP!

  • Thanks op! 4700 clicks so far, hope my late order gets honored. Regardless, awesome deal, thanks for posting.

    I didn't enjoy the HP movies. But I love artbooks.

    Pretty sure this version will be my favorite interpretation of all time. The character illustrations look EXACTLY like how I imagined them the first time I read Philosopher's stone ~15years ago!

  • Been wanting this book for so long. Really hope they honour it.

  • Thanks so much for the post. Its a shame you missed out but my Wife will enjoy reading this to our kids who will be more engaged now with the pictures. Thanks so much again for taking the time to post.

  • +1

    uninitiated in the world of HP, placed an order anyway.

  • Great post, bargain, thanks for the clear tips on how to get free shipping

  • OZBargained!

    • Far out! just missed out.

      • Same

        • Go one right before the cut off.

          Hope it comes still…

  • +3

    Still selling for $24.67 on book depository if anyones interested double the price posted here but still a bargain at less than 1/2 price if you really want one

  • Thanks OP for the posting, I love HP books, I have all the HP books except the first one. I know this one is illustrated version, even better.
    Hope my kids will love this and start reading.

    Order status:
    Normally in stock at Booktopia. Currently no stock. Expecting more on 24-May-16.

    I am so excited! Mine has been sent. Thanks so much OP, I wouldn't have known to look if you didn't post this. I ordered from Angus & Robertson (apparently they've been bought by Booktopia) Ebay instead($15 instead of $12), as mentioned above. They only had a few copies available and I thought I would be more likely to receive it. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Booktopia seemed fine with cancelling my order.

    • +1

      I got a notification that Booktopia dispatched mine from Sydney.

      • +1

        Awesome. I don't think I ordered long after you and I cancelled before it was expired so hopefully mine will go to a good home that may not otherwise have received them. No regrets about a paying a few extra $$s.

  • +1

    Received mine today. Talk about well packed

    • Agree on the packaging. I got mine on Monday and that box! And then the bubble wrap. Even AusPost wouldn't be able to damage these books.

    Just got a update on my order:

    Hi there,

    Congratulations on purchasing a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Illustrated Edition: Book 1. Mysteriously it seems He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named has cast a dark spell on our system and this special price was offered by mistake. As a result the demand for this title has been extraordinary and has exhausted our stock-on-hand many times over. There were simply more orders than we or our local supplier had stock for.

    Worry not: We are honouring this incorrect price but there will be a delay in fulfilling your order.

    We reached out to the publishers to get more stock and the good news is they can get us stock however we expect that this will take approximately 4 weeks.

    Please accept our apology for this unexpected turn of events and for any inconvenience caused.

    What happens next?
    If you are happy to continue to wait for stock to be available then you don't need to do anything; we'll ship your book as soon as stock arrives. We will provide a further update if this situation changes.

    If you cannot wait then please contact our Customer Service Team and we will cancel the order and refund your purchase.

    If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Call 1300 187 187 (Australia) or 0800 186 188 (New Zealand); we're available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm Sydney time (and 9am to 5pm NZ time).

    Kind regards,

    • +3

      Yep same here - 4 weeks wait. Oh well. At least theyre honoring the 'pricing error'.

    • +1

      Same, just received it too!

      I'm happy to wait 4 weeks =)
