Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book in the series, which is about a boy named Harry Potter. Harry Potter goes to a school for wizards known as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry because he is a wizard. In this book, Harry meets Sirius Black, Harry's wizard Godfather, who was framed by Peter Pettigrew, an innocent looking wizard. Sirius Black was accused of killing 13 people and sentenced to the Prison of Azkaban and is fighting to win back his identity and get revenge on the person who accused him of this crime. I think the author is trying to tell you that sometimes what appears to be happening isn't always the truth.

I like this book because it has a lot of interesting characters and it takes you to a world where anything can happen. I found Professor Lupin quite interesting and Peter Pettigrew also. I think in some way Harry potter is like me because he has no fear and I consider myself not scared of much also.

I recommend this book to other people because it is an interesting book. I think what would interest people is the friendship Harry and his friends have.
