Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (J K Rowling)

Lyn Hopson

I have read this book several times, and I absolutely love it, and I'm confident that you will love it too.

What the Publisher says about Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone:

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle.

Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The magic starts here!
