Imagine if you could do magic? Wouldn?t it be great! In this story, a boy named Harry Potter can do magic. He lives with people that are called Muggles. They are so mean to him, and they don?t let him do magic. They are the only family he has left. One day a creature came to their house. He told Harry that he should not go back to his school, Hogwarts, and he would not stop talking. Harry?s family had some friends over for dinner, and he was locked up in his cousin?s room with the creature. Remember the creature would not stop talking and making noises, so Harry?s family heard him. Just then Harry saw a bright light out of his window. Do you think you know what that bright light is? You can always read this book to find out!

I think this book is the greatest book ever written. I really loved because it related to me. My life is sort of like this in that I go to school and have a friend. Her name is Cassandra, and she is just like Hermine. There are characters that are very interesting in this book. I thought Hermine and Harry were interesting because I could relate to them. Hermine is smart and I am too. Harry is very adventurous, and I think I am too. This book is special because you feel like you?re in the book. This book is part of a series. It is different from the others because Harry and his friends are in a different year at Hogwarts. So read this book!!!

I recommend this book because it is so adventurous and funny. The kind of reader that would like this book would be someone who like adventures and can laugh at the stuff in this book!!!
