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.

            The first book to an amazing series is filled with every thing a book can need. Thriller, hope, courage, love, magic, and a boy that is special in every way. The first book the sorcerer's stone shows a boy named harry in his first year of wizarding school where he finds new friends and incredible adventures. I recommend this book to every one with love for magic. For this story is a magical adventure.

                Thsi is my most favorite book of all time. I reread it every year since my friend recommended this book to me two years ago. Harry Potter was raised by his muggle aunt and uncle. They were very harsh on Harry but too kind to their own son, Dudley. Harry always thought his parent died in a car crash until Hagrid (the Hogwarts Gamekeeper) came and told Harry that he is a wizard. Harry finds out that his parents did not die in a car crash- they were murdered by Lord Voldemort. However, Voldemort only left a scar on Harry and was not able to kill him. Later, after Hagrid came Harry followed him to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry and made new friends. Together, they prevented Lord Volemort from living forever by stopping him from getting the Sorcerer's Stone. Harry saved the day and survived his first year at Hogwarts.
