Everyone has probably read this book, but it is still really good. It is a really great fantasy book, and I love it. When a boy finds out he has magical powers, he gets sent to a boarding school with other gifted kids. Try reading this book!

The book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is about Harry Potter. Harry Potter lived when Voldemort, a dark wizard [attacked him], because his mom protected him by dying for him. Harry then goes to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and meets…well, you have to read it to find out! I loved this book so much because I love the movies and if you like the movies you will love the books!

This book is about this magical world where you can ride flying broomsticks and cast spells out of magical wands.

I liked it because it’s a great world of wizards that learn how to do spells, fly broomsticks, and have owls.

Harry Potter had a very terrible life with his aunt, uncle and cousin, until one day an owl delivers him a letter inviting him to a school called Hogwarts, Witchcraft & Wizardry. He accepts and quickly becomes famous at his school. He discovers the mystery of the Sorcerer’s stone and sets out to find it with his friends.

I loved this book. The writing style of the author is just amazing. I also really liked the storyline and characters. The author created an entire world which is amazing. I seriously could not put this book down.

Harry Potter is a series about a boy named Harry and him learning to control and cope with his magic while fighting against evil forces. He makes new friends and enemies along the way. I read this book series before and have re-read it multiple times because the story keeps reeling me back in.

This book will forever be a classic in my opinion. It’s a standard in which all books should be written by, and overall had great twists and turns in it. I have read the Harry Potter series before a couple of years ago, but I’m deciding to reread it and re-watch the movies. Now that’s just my opinion on the books, but the illustrations are a whole different story!  Jim Kay, the man who did them, also did the illustrations for “A Monster Calls,” which just shows how good he is. I think that the pictures give an extra element to the story, especially the sorting hat one, because I never imagined it that way! LOVE THIS BOOK! (reviews the illustrated edition)

In a world full of muggles there are secretly witches and wizards everywhere. The book starts with Mr. Dursley finding strange happenings on the way to work. He notices people in cloaks everywhere, cats doing strange things, and whispering wherever he is there. That night, Dumbledore meets McGonnagal outside of the Dursley home, along with Hagrid, informing them that Voldemort has killed Mr. & Mrs. Potter, but not their son, Harry. Dumbledore leaves Harry on the Dursley’s porch with a note. 10 years later we learn what Harry’s life with the Dursleys is like. At the zoo on Dudley’s birthday, the glass in front of a boa constrictor exhibit disappears, frightening everyone. Harry is later punished for this incident. Then mysterious letters start arriving for Harry, which the Dursleys don’t allow him to open. He learns on his 11th birthday that he is the orphaned son of 2 powerful wizards, Lily and James Potter. Harry also has magical powers of his own. He is then invited to Hogwarts School for Wizards and Witches. Will Harry be able to avoid Voldemort’s wrath? Will Harry be able to control his powers?

This book was a big part of my childhood, as I was super intrigued by Harry’s world. I loved the characters in this book.
