Eleven year old Harry Potter is an orphan who lives with his villainous uncle, aunt, and their child, Dudley. He lives under the stairs in the broom closet where he has a small bed and a few trinkets. Harry isn't allowed to make noise, and is forced to do chores around the house. Then suddenly, after many attempts, Harry is contacted by Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and taken off to the School. As he meets new friends and professors, Harry embarks on his wild journey to be a wizard. But, will he find the man he has been looking for, or will he stay in hiding for many books to come.
"A delightful award-winning debut from an author who dances in the footsteps of P.L. Travers and Roald Dahl. -Publisher Weekly, starred interview
I would recommend this book to anyone of the age ten and up because the reader is able to experience the journey and adventures the characters take while at Hogwarts. Another reason why I recommend this book to this age group is because this book always keeps you on your toes with twists, turns, and suprises. If you like mystery and adventure, this is the book for you!
