Description

When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he's the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord's curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts, a wizarding school brimming with ghosts and enchantments, Harry stumbles upon a sinister adventure when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers which could be valuable, dangerous, or both.

Review quote

Funny, imaginative, magical . . . Rowling has woken up a whole generation to reading.In the 2020s, thirty-something book-lovers will know each other by smug references to Diagon Alley and Quidditch * The Times * And you thought wizardry was for children. Harry Potter will make you think again. He casts his spells on grown-ups too * James Naughtie * The most remarkable publishing sensation for a generation . . . the story is told with such momentum, imagination and irrepressible humour that it can captivate both adults and children * Daily Express *
