A young wizard named Harry, goes to a school of witchcraft and wizardry. He uses magic to solve all his problems. Thoughout his years at Hogwarts he has solved the giant castles. He gets entered into a dangerous tournament and has to pass four dangerous tasks to be the champion. He has an argument with his best friend. At the beginning of the book Harry and his friend Ron have a disagreement. He thinks that Harry put his own name in the tournament. But he really didn?t put his name in the goblet. Later in the book they forgive each other. I think that the author really meant to just entertain the reader.

My favorite part in the book is when Harry battles a dragon because he has to fight the toughest of the dragons, the horned back dragon. Dobby is an important character to the story because he gives Harry items to help him in the upcoming challenges. He once was a slave but was freed in another book. My favorite character is Harry because I enjoyed all the tasks he worked to complete in the book. This book is just one in the series of Harry Potter books.

I really do recommend this book to those who like magic, wizards, and witches. There are about to be 5 other books in the series. You should really buy it today. It has a whole bunch of twists and turns in his adventures at Hogwarts. The main characters are Harry, Ron, Hermione, Snape, Drako, and mad eye moody. I think you should read this book soon.
