Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
When Harry and his best friends go back for their third year at Hogwarts, the atmosphere is tense. There's an escaped mass-murderer on the loose and the sinister prison guards of Azkaban have been called in to guard the school. Lessons, however, must go on and there are lots of new subjects in third year - Care of Magical Creatures and Divination among others - to take Harry's mind off things!

Our customer reviews
"Hello, Well, Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Askaban, kinda confincing title really. It could be my favourite Harry Potter book. Its brilliant, the action and thrill of the story urges you to keep reading. Yet there is a sense of mystery, the constant presence of 'The Grim' fills you with anticipation, desperate to find out answers to certain questions. But this is story is somewhat of a turing point in the 'Harry Potter' series. I do not want ot give too much away, but this section of the whole six stories so far is very important.From this point onwards, the books turn darker, even more so in the fourth book. What can we espect from the seventh in the series, will the whole Wizarding world turn to ruins, or will the ending be much of a happier one?"show moreby a Book Depository customer
