The Professional Book Nerds and The Prisoner of Azkaban

| E:160

Rarely do single books come out that the we feel the need to do an entire episode on by themselves but the Harry Potter universe is an exception they'll always make. On today's show, we're celebrating the release of the illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!

These books have played a massive part in both Jill and Adam's lives and this title is the first of the series that truly goes dark. We discuss themes of the book, what it means to us and some of our favorite scenes.

Note: The illustrated versions of the Harry Potter titles are not available on OverDrive but you can check out the very cool and brand new Hogwarts Library Collection on OverDrive thanks to our friends at Pottermore.
