Harry Potter?s parents are dead and now he has to live with his aunt and uncle, and their son Dudley who is spoiled. Harry doesn?t get anything from the Dursleys, even on special occasions.

One day Harry went away to Hogwarts (a school for wizards) where he met Hermione Granger and Ron Weasly. The three became best friends. At Hogwarts he learned how to play a game for witches and wizards. That game was Quidditch.

Harry traveled all around Hogwarts searching for the Sorcerers Stone. I liked this book because it was adventurous and I like adventurous books! My favorite character was Harry because he had a lot of important things to take care of. He was always taking risks.

When I read the book I felt like I was in Harry?s shoes. I would recommend this book to someone who likes adventure books.
