Description of this Book

When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he's the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord's curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts, a wizarding school brimming with ghosts and enchantments, Harry stumbles upon a sinister adventure when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers which could be valuable, dangerous, or both.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Funny, imaginative, magical ... Rowling has woken up a whole generation to reading.In the 2020s, thirty-something book-lovers will know each other by smug references to Diagon Alley and Quidditch The Times And you thought wizardry was for children. Harry Potter will make you think again. He casts his spells on grown-ups too James Naughtie The most remarkable publishing sensation for a generation ... the story is told with such momentum, imagination and irrepressible humour that it can captivate both adults and children Daily Express
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
