Harry Potter lives in a spider-infested closet under the stairs in the home of his Aunt, Uncle, and cousin where he has suffered neglect and cruelty for as long as he can remember.  One day, very unexpectedly, his life is changed forever by a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Harry finds out that his parents were magical, that he is a wizard, and that he has been accepted to attend Hogwarts.

During his first year at Hogwarts, Harry and his friends, Ron and Hermione, encounter a mystery that they must solve in order to save the school and stop an evil wizard’s dastardly plan.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is an amazing book! The story is exciting and will keep readers guessing until the end.  It is a modern classic and a must read book for adults and children alike.  J. K. Rowling is a masterful storyteller who has created a magical world filled with whimsy and a cast of characters that is sure to delight every reader.  Few books capture the reader’s imagination in the way that the Harry Potter series does.  This book is highly recommended for any fan of the fantasy genre or any ready who wants to read a really good, fun book.
