If you like magic, fantasy and mystery, you should read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It's Harry Potter's second year at Hogwarts. There's a green creature named Dolby. It warns Harry not to go to Hogwarts. If he goes, something bad will happen. It does happen. There is also another part when Ron (Harry's friend) tries to zap Draco Malfoy (Harry's enemy). Ron's wand is broken, so instead of zapping Draco, he zaps himself! He burps out slugs! You figure out what happens to Ron and Harry by reading this book.
My favorite part is when the ugly plant baby things got pulled out of the ground because their cries can kill you if you hear it. Dolby is an interesting character because it shows up in the beginning and in the end. I felt like I had to read another chapter when I finished one because I wanted to find out more.
I recommend this book because it is exciting to read and it is a GREAT book to get into! I recommend this to anyone who wants to read it!
