Book: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Author: J.K. Rowling
For Harry Potter, the world has always been a dull and boring place. But, things change on his eleventh birthday when he finds out that there is more to his parents’ death than just a car crash. Harry learns that he is not just an ordinary boy but a wizard.
Beginning with the invitation for Harry to study at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, J K Rowling narrates the story of the boy’s adventures through a series of books. Harry wades through six years of education, patronage, fame, friendship, adventure, death and survival. Each book details one year of Harry’s journey; each culminates in an attempt to foil the Dark Lord’s plots to gain absolute power. The series transports readers into a world where they can feel the magic in the air.
