Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books
Convicted murderer, Sirius Black, escapes from Azkaban, the merciless prison of the wizarding world and Harry fears for his life.
As well as the usual mixture of magic, adventure and Quidditch, new characters and concepts are introduced, such as the dreaded Dementors, guards of Azkaban, who suck the souls from living creatures.
This, the third inventive instalment in the Harry Potter series, should not be missed.
