|Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Book 1)
Say you've spent the first 10 years of your life sleeping
under the stairs of a family who loathes you. Then, in an absurd, magical
twist of fate you find yourself surrounded by wizards, a caged snowy owl,
a phoenix-feather wand and jellybeans that come in every flavour,
including strawberry, curry, grass and sardine. Not only that, but you
discover that you are a wizard yourself! This is exactly what happens to
young Harry Potter in J K Rowling's enchanting, funny debut novel, Harry
Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. In the non-magical human world--the
world of "Muggles"--Harry is a nobody, treated like dirt by the aunt and
uncle who begrudgingly inherited him when his parents were killed by the
evil Voldemort. But in the world of wizards, small, skinny Harry is
renowned as a survivor of the wizard who tried to kill him. He is left
only with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead, curiously refined
sensibilities and a host of mysterious powers to remind him that he's
quite, yes, altogether different from his aunt, uncle, and spoilt,
pig-like cousin Dudley.
A mysterious letter, delivered by the friendly giant Hagrid, wrenches
Harry from his dreary, Muggle-ridden existence: "We are pleased to inform
you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and
Wizardry". Of course, Uncle Vernon yells most unpleasantly, "I AM NOT
PAYING FOR SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TO TEACH HIM MAGIC TRICKS!" Soon enough,
however, Harry finds himself at Hogwarts with his owl Hedwig ... and
that's where the real adventure--humorous, haunting, and
This magical, gripping, brilliant book--a future classic to be sure--will
leave children clamouring for a sequel.
|Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2)
J K Rowling's sequel to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's
Stone carries on where the original left off. Harry is returning to
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry after the summer holidays and,
right from the start, things are not straightforward.
Unable to board the Hogwarts express, Harry and his friends break all the
rules and make their way to the school in a magical flying car. From this
point on, incredible events happen to Harry and his friends--Harry hears
evil voices and someone, or something is attacking the pupils. Can Harry
get to the bottom of the mystery before it's too late?
As with its predecessor Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a
highly readable and imaginative adventure story with real, fallible,
characters, plenty of humour and, of course, loads of magic and spells.
There is no need to have read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to
enjoy this book. However, if you have read it, this is the book you have
been waiting for...
|Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3)
The worry, when faced with the follow-up to books as good
as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the
Chamber of Secrets (both winners of the Nestlé Smarties Prize Gold Award),
is that it won't be as good. With J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the
Prisoner of Azkaban any concerns are banished from page one. This, the
third in the series, continues where the previous two left off and is a
fantastic adventure of mystery, magic and mayhem combined with liberal
doses of humour and plenty of suspense.
Forced to do his homework in the dead of night and forbidden to refer to
his magic skills or his life at Hogwarts school, Harry Potter is forced to
endure the summer holidays with the dreaded Dursleys. The arrival of Aunt
Marge is the final straw and, in a fit of anger, Harry breaks all the
rules and casts a spell on her, causing her to blow up like a balloon.
Running away from his dreaded relatives, Harry expects to be expelled from
Hogwarts for his blatant flaunting of the rule not to use magic outside
term time. However, the arrival of the mysterious Knight Bus and a meeting
with Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic, result in Harry enjoying the
rest of the holidays in the wonderful surroundings of the Leaky Cauldron.
The escape of Sirius Black--one time friend of Harry's parents, implicated
in their murder and follower of "You- Know-Who"--from Azkaban, has serious
implications for Harry for it would appear that Black is bent on revenge
against Harry for thwarting "You-Know-Who". Back at Hogwarts, Harry's
movements are restricted by the presence of the Dementors--guards from
Azkaban on the look out for Black--however, this doesn't stop him throwing
himself into the new Quidditch season and going about his normal
business--or at least attempting to. Despite warnings Harry is determined
to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding Sirius Black--how could
this one-time close friend of his parents become the cause of their
And why does the presence of the Dementors have such a devastating effect
on him, causing him to hear the last moments of his mother's life?
With another four Harry Potter novels planned, Jo Rowling is creating a
series of books which will become classics to rival C.S. Lewis'Chronicles
of Narnia--books written for children but loved by adults too.
|Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the long-awaited,
heavily hyped fourth instalment of a phenomenally successful series that
has captured the imagination of millions of readers, young and old, across
the globe. For J K Rowling the pressure is certainly on to continue to
come up with thrilling, pacey storylines that allow her hero to mature
into a young man without detracting from the magical secret that has made
Harry into a superstar. In this book, the teenage Harry has a certain
gawky charm that fits well with his advancing adolescence. As the story
moves on, Harry too moves on to a new level of maturity that leaves the
reader wondering how he will learn from his experiences, and liking him
all the more as a character.
Once returned to Hogwarts after his summer holiday with the dreadful
Dursleys and an extraordinary outing to the Quidditch World Cup, the
14-year-old Harry and his fellow pupils are enraptured by the promise of
the Triwizard Tournament: an ancient, ritualistic tournament that brings
Hogwarts together with two other schools of wizardry--Durmstrang and
Beauxbatons--in heated competition. But when Harry's name is pulled from
the Goblet of Fire, and he is chosen to champion Hogwarts in the
tournament, the trouble really begins. Still reeling from the effects of a
terrifying nightmare that has left him shaken, and with the
lightning-shaped scar on his head throbbing with pain (a sure sign that
the evil Voldemort, Harry's sworn enemy, is close), Harry becomes at once
the most popular boy in school. Yet, despite his fame, he is totally
unprepared for the furore that follows.
This is a hefty volume: 636 pages, of which probably at least 200 could
have been cut without detracting from the story. The weight and complexity
of the book is perhaps a hint that Rowling now has her eye sharply focused
on her adult audience, and the average child-reader (particularly one who
is coming to Harry Potter for the first time) may well find its girth
daunting. Rowling's ironic and pointed observations on tabloid journalism
and the nature of media hype is just one of the references littered
through the book that will tickle the grown-ups but may well fly over the
heads of her young fans.
However, after a slow start, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire really
starts to sparkle halfway through with Rowling's familiar magic (and yes,
there is a death--sudden and tragic--and yes, Harry does start to notice
girls). The crux of this story, however, is Harry's gradual coming-of-age
and his handling of the increasingly determined threats to his own life.
This book is pivotal, not just for the author for whom the heat is well
and truly on, but for Harry and his readers who, by the last chapter, are
left in little doubt that there is much more to come.

|Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter 5)
As his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and
Wizardry approaches in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,
15-year-old Harry Potter is in full-blown adolescence, complete with
regular outbursts of rage, a nearly debilitating crush, and the blooming
of a powerful sense of rebellion. It's been yet another infuriating and
boring summer with the despicable Dursleys, this time with minimal contact
from our hero's non-Muggle friends from school. Harry is feeling
especially edgy at the lack of news from the magic world, wondering when
the freshly revived evil Lord Voldemort will strike. Returning to Hogwarts
will be a relief… or will it?
Book five in JK Rowling's Harry Potter series follows the darkest year yet
for our young wizard, who finds himself knocked down a peg or three after
the events of last year. Over the summer, gossip (usually traced back to
the magic world's newspaper, the Daily Prophet) has turned Harry's tragic
and heroic encounter with Voldemort at the Triwizard Tournament into an
excuse to ridicule and discount the teenager. Even Professor Dumbledore,
headmaster of the school, has come under scrutiny from the Ministry of
Magic, which refuses to officially acknowledge the terrifying truth: that
Voldemort is back. Enter a particularly loathsome new character: the
toad-like and simpering ("hem, hem") Dolores Umbridge, senior
undersecretary to the minister of Magic, who takes over the vacant
position of defence against dark arts teacher--and in no time manages to
become the high inquisitor of Hogwarts. Life isn't getting any easier for
Harry Potter. With an overwhelming course load as the fifth years prepare
for their examinations, devastating changes in the Gryffindor Quidditch
team line-up, vivid dreams about long hallways and closed doors, and
increasing pain in his lightning-shaped scar, Harry's resilience is sorely
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, more than any of the four
previous novels in the series, is a coming-of-age story. Harry faces the
thorny transition into adulthood, when adult heroes are revealed to be
fallible, and matters that seemed black and white suddenly come out in
shades of gray. Gone is the wide-eyed innocent, the whiz kid of Harry
Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Here we have an adolescent who's
sometimes sullen, often confused (especially about girls), and always
self-questioning. Confronting death again, as well as a startling
prophecy, Harry ends his year at Hogwarts exhausted and pensive. Readers,
on the other hand, will be energised as they enter yet again the long
waiting period for the next title in the marvellous magical series
