Harry Potter was a little boy who was treated badly because his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon didn?t like him because his last name was Potter. They hated Potters, especially Harry; he was told that his parents died in a car accident. That wasn?t true! So Hagrid brought him to Diagon Alley and told him the truth about what happened about his parents. Harry was accepted into Hogwarts, a witchcraft school, where he learned magic and history of wizards. Ron and Hermonie were his friends. Harry was accepted on the Quidditch team, the youngest in a century. Draco Malfoy was a bully to Harry, Ron, and Hermonie. Only because Hermonie?s parents were muggles. Harry discovered Nickolas Flamel owned the Sorcerer Stone. They went to the dungeon and played wizard chess to get to the stone. You will have to read the book to find out what happens next.

I liked this book because it?s not too hard and not too easy to read. I like fantasy books and this book is full of fantasy. This book reminds me of another book called ?Harry Bone? because they are both books about wizardry. My favorite part was when they played the game called Quidditch. I liked it because it looked fun. My favorite character was Harry Potter because I liked the way he learned all the magic tricks.

You should read this book because it is entertaining for kids. People who like fantasy books would like this book.
