Special editions for fans

New editions of two sagas that have become classics and which keep fans loyal as well as helping new readers discover these unique stories.

Over the last few years we have seen a boom in products and new editions that make the sagas that had an impact on our own childhoods even more special. An obvious example is Harry Potter, which, since the first publication of The Philosopher's Stone, has found a group of fans that is so strong that any product or book that is released that deals with this topic is a guaranteed success. However there are other sagas that have appeared to take up the baton from those as well established as J. K. Rowling's, and this is the case of Percy Jackson. This saga has managed to turn the world of mythology into a fascinating world for all those who are hooked on Percy's dynamic narration.

Harry Potter is a story that goes beyond the book. The relationship that is established between the reader and the character is exactly what turns the magic surrounding the story into something real. All fans have dreamed of receiving that letter from Hogwarts that starts with the words: "We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry". For all of them, and for the new readers who are immersing themselves in the Potter world, the new edition of  The Philosopher's Stone offers the best depiction of the imagery that surrounds the work. Its pages are illustrated from beginning to end, allowing us to reach a deeper level in the story — an extraordinary achievement by Jim Kay, one of the best English illustrators.

The Percy Jackson saga also uses magic, but in a different, and up to a point, more realistic way. This saga plays with the great world of mythology, a universe which was the cornerstone of the explanation of things like the origin of the world for cultures as important as the Roman or Greek. However, these stories are adapted to the 21st century thanks to the voice of Percy Jackson, a boy who has been expelled from six schools and who had been diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. But the revelation of the gods of Olympia that he is no more and no less than a demigod leads him to experience the most exciting events of his life.

In summary, these two sagas have elements in common, such as adventure, friendship, first love and decision making; these aspects allow young readers to identify with what the characters experience and feel every day. And that's why they still have unconditional fans — because some things never change, including what we experience at the beginning of adolescence.
