This book is about a kid named Harry Potter who doesn't know he's a wizard, until a guy comes and tells him. Then he goes to this school called Hogwirths that teaches you how to be a wizard. He meets two kids who are also going to Hogwirths. At the school, they become best friends. Then Harry saves the school from his worst enemy. The enemy killed Harry's parents. Since the enemy knows that Harry is such a good sorcerer, the enemy wants him dead, too, so he can rule the world.

My favorite part is when Harry is facing his worst enemy. When I was reading the book, it felt like I was in the story. This books reminds me of magic shows I watch on TV because there is magic in the story.

This book is part of a series. There are eight Harry Potter books in all, written by the same author.
