Scholastic has released Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’s new paperback cover, and it features Harry versus the Hungarian Horntail.
In the colorful scene, Harry is up in the air and holding the Hungarian Horntail’s golden egg. This moment takes place during the TriWizard Tournament and allows Harry to compete in the next round. You can see spectactors at the bottom of the photo cheering Harry on.
Readers may recall that in the storyline, Harry realizes the only way he can get the egg from the dragon is by summoning his broom, which lies all the way back at Hogwarts.
