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.

      This book gives a intro to Harry's life, what it is like to be tortured by other careless people.

        I like the book Harry Potter because I think Harry, Ron and Hermione are brave characters because they go out at night when Filch is out with Miss Norris. Sometimes it's scary like when Harry falls off his broom and went to the hospital wing. I hope you can read this book!!!!!!

                This was a great introdution to a great book series. This book does everything a good "first book" does. They establish the characters and the reader like them. The display Voldem- I mean he that shall not be named. And make the readers love to hate him. Overall the book is a great start to the franchise that is Harry Potter. (I still didn't see the twist at the end coming.)

                    Harry is my hero he hermione and Ron are all freinds to me and those are freinds that I will never lose my hope or faith in. The Harry potter series (by the way I'm on book 6) is making me want to become an actress if they redo the movies exactly how j.k. Rowling wrote it. it is the best book in the world I hope you read it beacouse if you do you will gain dozens of friends. The only thing bad about this book that at the end of most books there is scary moments . So if you are not over age 7 this May not be a good book (p.s. Read it anyway) for you. I've always loved the books and make sure that you read them in order(if you don't you won't get it.) also the movies are way diffrent than the books so make sure to read the books to 😃. This is like a intro to the series. Please promise me to read them. Please.hope you like it!!!!!!
