NEW YORK (AP) — You don’t need to be a sorceress to see a “Harry Potter” books come to life.

The 7 books are removing a makeover with some-more than 200 new illustrations in extended e-books done for Apple devices. More than half of a illustrations are charcterised or interactive, with such touches as a golden snitch from Quidditch matches drifting divided as we daub it on a screen. Series creator J.K. Rowling also goes deeper into some of a characters and story lines with a handful of pop-up annotations.

The editions, expelled Thursday, are disdainful to Apple’s iBooks Store and need an Apple Inc. mobile device or a Mac mechanism to read. For other devices, including Amazon’s Kindle, customary electronic editions are accessible by Rowling’s Pottermore site.

The makeover offers readers immature and aged a new approach to rivet with a story. It also gives Rowling and her publishers an event to resell these best-selling books, a final of that came out 8 years ago. It’s same to Hollywood releasing a same cinema in new formats and with reward materials.

While a illustrations are new and disdainful to a extended editions, Rowling’s annotations aren’t indispensably so. Rowling has been frequently posting new essays on Pottermore. She has traced Harry’s roots to a 12th-century sorceress and has created about a origins of an invisibility disguise that appears via a series. Rowling has also penned supplemental books, including “The Tales of Beedle a Bard,” a children’s book that was referenced in a final “Harry Potter” book.

Until recently, a Pottermore site also had a diversion that took readers by a books section by chapter, with riddles and other discoveries along a way. That diversion incorporated clips from a “Harry Potter” movies. The new e-books do not.

Instead, a new editions offer full-color illustrations and animation from Pottermore artists.

In one animation, we see mixed letters fly in by a grate with news of Harry’s acceptance to Hogwarts necromancy school. In another, an owl, a cat and a haze come to life on Platform 9 3/4, where a Hogwarts-bound sight awaits. On a train, we see landscape relocating by by a window.

In one stage of a feast, we can slip left and right to see a rest of a prolonged list lonesome with food. It’s not apparent that illustrations are interactive. The thought is to get readers to explore.

There’s no sound, though. When Harry’s friend, Ron, gets an indignant audio minute from his mother, we see steam entrance out, yet we don’t hear her screaming, as we do in a movie.

You can entrance Rowling’s supplemental materials by drumming a needle idol embedded in a text. For instance, we learn how students arrived during Hogwarts before sight use began: Some rode on broomsticks, yet that was tough with trunks and pets to move along.

There aren’t many annotations, though. You get some-more backstory during a Pottermore site, yet we need a e-books for a full text.

The books also get new digital covers to simulate any book’s thesis — serpents for a second book, for instance. Artists also designed a new rise with any minute incorporating a lightning shaft — a figure of a injure on Harry’s forehead. This rise — named Fluffy, for a three-headed dog in a initial book — is used for a opening minute of any chapter.

The books cost $10 each, or $70 for a series. There’s no bonus if we already possess customary electronic editions. English editions are accessible in a U.S. and 31 other markets right away. Editions in French, German and Spanish are entrance Nov. 9.
