According to Mashable, the enhanced editions will be available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac owners. In a statement, author J.K. Rowling said, “I’m thrilled to see the Harry Potter books so beautifully realized on iBooks for the digital world; the artwork and animations in these enhanced editions bring the stories alive in a delightful new way.”
