NEW YORK (AP) - You don't need to be a wizard to see the "Harry Potter" books come to life.

The seven books are getting a makeover with more than 200 new illustrations in enhanced e-books made for Apple devices. More than half of the illustrations are animated or interactive, with such touches as a golden snitch from Quidditch matches flying away as you tap it on the screen.

Series creator J.K. Rowling also goes deeper into some of the characters and story lines with a handful of pop-up annotations.

The editions, released Thursday, are exclusive to Apple's iBooks Store and require an Apple mobile device or a Mac computer to read.
