The dude on the left is dressed like a bum, and looks totally out of place with what the other 2 are wearing, and Harry isn't even looking at the right camera. When does the chick is the middle turn 18?

The guy, Rupert Grant (sp?), on the left is dressed like a lot of British teens I've seen during my time in England. Kinda punk-rock, rebellious thing going on.

I'd imagine there were multiple cameras going off right now, so Harry is looking at another.

The girl is Emma Watson.

The NA version looks better.

That "adult" version is horrible. Makes it look like you're gonna be reading some historical account of the samauri.

They didn't make him wear something else? Or if he got to choose, he should have atleast called to see what the others were wearing. He looks like a tool.

When does shoe turn 18?

BTW, to answer the original question, no I won't read this book.

I ordered it via Amazon, and probably have it read before the week end is over.

You'd never heard of Magic Tree House? Seriously? It was what all the cool kids were reading back in grade 3. Phh, you must not have been in the popular clique.
