Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: Book 1

By J.K. Rowling

This book is about a boy named Harry Potter. Harry has no parents and lives with his mean aunt, uncle, and cousin who all yell at him for no reason. Normally Harry does not get invited to do anything fun with the family, but one day he got to go to his cousin’s birthday party at the zoo because his baby sitter broke her leg. While they were at the zoo strange things started happening. Harry was staring at a snake when the glass of the snake’s tank disappeared. Then, a couple days later, a guy named Hagrid broke through Harry’s door and told him that he (Harry) is actually a wizard and has been his whole life. Hagrid takes Harry on a train to Hogwart’s, a school for witchcraft and wizardry. While at Hogwarts, Harry makes lots of friends and has exciting adventures while trying to defeat a bad wizard named Voldamort.

This book is super cool! I liked it better than the movie because it has more details about Harry’s life and adventures. You will like this book if you like fantasy and mystery books.
