Bella’s book review


Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix J.K.Rowling

If you’re a Harry Potter fan or are interested then you should read this book! The back says, Dumbledore lowered his bands and surveyed Harry through his half moon glasses. “It is time,” he said, “for me to tell you what I should have told you five years ago. Harry please sit down. I am going to tell you everything.” And he had had five years in Hogwarts school. Maybe if you read the book you’ll figure out what he was going to say.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter is a story about a young boy that grows up as an orphan. As time passed he realised he could make some odd things happen. As it turns out he is a wizard. Harry attends a school for witches and wizards called Hogwarts. Here he learns how to use and control magic, concoct and brew potions, look after magical creatures and even fly a broomstick. Along the way he makes some lifelong friends and enemies including the most evil and dark wizard in the world.

The book sucks you in with its way of making magic come to life. It has moments of danger, action, suspense, laughter and tears as the characters battle their way through their first year at Hogwarts and struggle to save the Philosophers Stone.

Inside the book there are ghosts, three headed dogs, dragons and giants for you to discover and learn about and that is not even mentioning wizards chess or invisibility cloaks.

I recommend this book to everyone to read as it is only the start of a 7 book long journey. The book can be found in the library for you all to borrow.

Miss Morris’s Holiday Reading Pics

As I travelled around England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and France with my partner last school holidays I always made sure I had a book on hand to read when things were getting a little dull.

My partner took some sneaky shots of me reading in front of Big Ben in London, sitting on a park bench in Paris with Notre Dame in the background, and reading amongst ancient castle ruins in Ireland.

Reading is so much fun; you can do it just about anywhere.

As a child my favourite books were written and illustrated by a lady named Beatrix Potter. She is the creator of the very popular Peter rabbit book series. My love for these stories drew me to a place called Windermere in the Lake District of England. Windermere and the Lake District is where Miss Potter wrote many of her stories. Whilst here I visited Miss Potters house, and many of the locations that inspired her.

Speaking of Potter, no not Beatrix Potter a different Potter. Harry Potter! I am also a Harry Potter fan (books before movies always!) I was lucky to come across the famous Hogwarts Express Bridge in Glen Coe Scotland.
