The Dursleys had everything they wanted, but they also had a secret, and their greatest fear was that someone would discover it.

This is a book about Harry Potter who is a student wizard at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The story takes place in England. The main characters are Harry Potter, Hermione and Ron. It is about three kids trying to capture the philosopher’s stone before Voldemort. He is the person who gave Harry Potter his lightning bolt scar. Harry Potter fought against Voldemort twice. He is very lucky he survived when he was little.

A good part of the book is when Harry and Ron and Hermione bring the baby dragon Norbert up to the top of the Hogwart’s building under the invisibility cloak.

I loved the book because it is action packed, adventurous, and mysterious. I would recommend this book to someone who likes magic with wizards, witches and trolls. I would recommend this book because it is an amazing book. The characters are so believable because it seems like they’re real. Uncle Vernon is a lot like my brother. I like J.K. Rowling’s writing style because it is filled with British expressions.

I give this book five out of five stars!!!!
