When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he's the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord's curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry stumbles upon a sinister mystery when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers, which could be valuable, dangerous – or both. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

My teacher was not so friendly, so when she read the text aloud, I always tuned her out. However, when I finally got my hand...
Re-Read:February 8 - February 10 2018I was told by a coworker that the audio version of this series was really awesome and she did not lie. I hadn’t realized it until I started listening but I’ve really missed this world of magic and mystery. It’s been quite some time since I’ve read about Harry and...
