Harry attends his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He runs into trouble when the Chamber of Secrets is opened. Students mysterioiusly become "petrified". Harry discovers a truly frightening creature and must rely on his good friends, Hermione and Ron. He also gets help from unexpected places.

I like this book because it?s interesting. The character of Professor Snape reminds me of my cousin Madie--she'so devilish. The book is the second in the series and all are different since a new character will show up in each one. There are illustrations and I think they are very well drawn. The artist has a very spectacular imagination.

I recommend this book since it is magical and it will have you reading all the time. A person who likes witchcraft and wizardry will want this book! I think the ending is the best part of the story. Don't miss it.
