The Sunday Times:
"This is a story full of suprises and jokes; comparisons with Dahl are, this time, justified."
"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone has all the makings of a class... Rowling uses classic narrative devices with flair and originality and delivers a complex and demanding plot in the form of a hugely entertaining thriller. She is a first-rate writer for children."
"A richly textured first novel given lift-off by an inventive wit."
