    I really liked this because it is very exiting and I liked the bit where Prof. Quirrel tries to get the philosopher’s stone.The philosipher’s stone is a stone that can turn any materially solid gold.

    I really enjoyed this because most of the time Harry doesn’t really know what is going on most of the time and neither do I .

  11. bwatson says:

    When Harry got to the school he was sorted into one of the teams out of four.There was Gryfindor,Huffkepuff,Slytherin and Ravenclaw. They were sorted by a hat called the Sorting Hat and it sang a song. Harry was called to put the hat on . It took long but the decision was made he was put into Gryfindor .Once everyone was sorted into teams they had a feast.They were taken to their team room by a senior student. While walking the stairs were moving as well.

  12. bwatson says:

    In the first chapter of Harry potter his uncle Vernon had been seeing strange things happing. He saw a cat reading a map and cloaked people everywhere he went.The Dursley didn’t really like people like this especially because Ms Dursleys sister is one of them.One night , Dumbledore turnt all the street light off to speak to a cat who transfomed into a women.They said how Harry Potter parents had been killed by Your know-Who (Voldemort)

    This book is amazingly interesting and funny for all ages and will easily make you want to read the entire series of all 7 books! Everyone who reads this is promised a incredible adventure through wizard and witchcraft!

  14. fkirkwood says:

    Harry Potter is an amazing book about an ‘ordinary’ boy living with his aunt and uncle. After a strange day at the zoo Harry realises he is not normal. The next day, to Harry’s utter amazement, a half giant knocks down the door and tells Harry that he is a wizard. He is taken to a school of witchcraft and wizardry where he learns how to use magic, but something strange is going on…

  15. fives says:

    Harry Potter is a dazzling story about whitchcraft and wizardry. Harry Potter, the main character, is a young wizard whose parents where killed by the dark Lord Voldemort. He is invited to Hogworts but all is not as it seems.

  16. ograham says:

    I like this book because Harry Potter go’s to a witch craft and wizards school could hogworts and make ‘s some magicall friends Calle Ron and Hermione and his greatest enemy voldermot.

  22. aimam says:

    What. I like about Harry Potter is that Harry is a wizard but he doesn’t know and he lives with his cousin and uncle and auntie . Then Harry gets letters to hogwarts and they move away but then a giant comes and tells Harry that he is a wizard and his parents were wizards and witches and they went to Hogwarts there’s also a place called Diagon Alley were Harry gets his things and that his parents died against Lord Voldermort who was a great wizard but he was evil. Then there’s Platform 9 and 3/4 which is the only train that can get you to Hogwarts

  23. rfrench says:

    I like this book because Harry Potter is a great wizard and with his friends Ronald Weasly and Hermione Granger they have the most magical andventures you can imagine.

  26. hhall says:

    I love this book because youreally get into the book and enjoy it so I hope you read it

  27. aimam says:

    Harry Potter is one of the books that I think is cool because there’s a vanishing glass on Dudley’s Birthday and Harry starts getting so many letters to Hogwarts and harry walks straight at the wall to get to platform 9 and 3/4 and Hagrid makes Dudley a tail which is really funny

  28. emcinerney says:

    Harry Potter is really exciting and interesting I love the part when he does the trick with the glass at the zoo with the snake. the book is really interesting and exciting because of all the interesting characters like Snape and Draco Malfoil and Hermoine and all the exciting adventures Harry Ron and Hermione go on like facing the three-headed dog Fluffy.

  29. bdavies says:

    I love this book and the movie based on it.
