Mr Manning’s magical book review
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.
