Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Title: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Author: J.K. Rowling
Call Number: PR6068.O93 H37 2008
Location: 2nd Floor Arts and Humanities
Rating: Highly Recommended
Book Review: The first of seven books of the Harry Potter boy wizard series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone introduces magic to audiences’ non-magical world. Initially growing up as a “muggle” (non-magical person) orphan under the unsympathetic care of his muggle aunt and uncle, Harry discovers he is a wizard at age eleven, and that a whole new world awaits him as he sets off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. With the companionship and encouragement of his new found friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, and despite the antagonism from his archenemy, Draco Malfoy, Harry encounters ghosts and trolls, battles homework and exams, experiences the thrill of flying when playing the magical game of Quidditch, and searches for answers about his magical past.
