This book is about a boy whose name is Harry Potter. He has adventures through-out Hogwarts (a school for wizards). Harry has adventures in a forbidden forest where he's on a quest to find a dead unicorn because something's going around in the forest killing unicorns. Harry has adventures in Hogwart's at night roaming around the school looking for special mirrors and books. Harry's last adventure is "Through the Trapdoor" where he has to destroy enchantments in order to get the Sorcerer's Stone. I think "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" is a reread because I found it very interesting. Harry's adventures are magical. You don't know what hides around every corner, you don't know what lies behind every door. Harry takes risks and goes around every corner, he goes through every door, and what does he find??

I recommend this book to people who like enchantments and magic because there's lots of both. There's so much magic that if you were Harry Potter you wouldn't know what to do with it all. I think you should read this book and find out what happens to Harry. Some questions you'll be asking yourself are: . Does he ever get the Sorcerer's Stone? Is it Snape [one of the other characters] that's trying to stop Harry from getting the Sorcerer's Stone?
