by J K Rowling

After the misery of life with his ghastly aunt and uncle, Harry Potter is delighted to have the chance to embark on an exciting new life at the Hogwart's School of Wizardry and Witchcraft. Learning about magic and making new friends, he has the chance to use his new-found wizarding skills to unravel some of the mysteries of his own past - and to uncover some shocking secrets about his teachers.


This brilliantly inventive, award-winning adventure story is the first in the phenomenally successful Harry Potter series. With shades of Diana Wynne Jones, Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and Jill Murphy's The Worst Witch, this contemporary classic of children's literature is beloved by children and adults alike.

I loved as it brings a series to life, I love how Harry defeats Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia's hate of him his friends, Ron and Hermoine are comical and Draco Maldfoy just an idiot. Snape is annoying and hateful but in the second book it is found out that. ;)

this book has a lot of words. but we eventually got to read it all. my dad read it to me and my brother every night and we very much enjoyed it ( he did voices too ) and now we have watched the prisoner of askaban and it was really scary. i like this book very much because it has a lot of words. i like words.

Harry Potter is the best book series I have ever read in my whole life. I am currently reading the last book and I am devestated to be taking my last adventure with Harry. I would recommend this book for children between the age of nine and fifteen.
