Harry Potter has no idea how famous he is. That's because he's being raised by his miserable aunt and uncle who are terrified Harry will learn that he's really a wizard, just as his parents were. But everything changes when Harry is summoned to attend an infamous school for wizards, and he begins to discover some clues about his illustrious birthright. From the surprising way he is greeted by a lovable giant, to the unique curriculum and colorful faculty at his unusual school, Harry finds himself drawn deep inside a mystical world he never knew existed and closer to his own noble destiny.

    Harry Potter's mom and dad were pretty nice people. Some evil wizard named Voldemort killed Harry's parents. But Harry survived, do you know why? His mom loved him so much, Voldemort couldn't hurt him. But soon, after about 12 years living like a slave, he goes to Hogwarts. He makes friends, gets a better room, and also gets his favorite food(bacon, sausage, pork chops.) Soon, he finds out that the magical sorcerer's stone is about to be stolen. Harry must find out who is behind this. There are many activities at Hogwarts. You might want to pick your school house, I would go to Hufflepuff. (In 3 years) You can also do Quittich and most importantly, to have fun! Join Harry and find out who is stealing the Sorcerer's stone.
