A New York Times Bestseller -- Book 3 in the Harry Potter series.What's a young wizard to do when he must spend the summer with distasteful relatives and refrain from practicing magic? Thirteen-year-old Harry Potter puts up with this situation until Aunt Marge so annoys him that he violates a code of ethics by using his magic on her. Instead of being punished, Harry is allowed to finish out his holiday at the Leaky Cauldron Inn, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. But as Harry's third year at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry begins, things turn serious when Sirius Black, the man who killed Harry's parents and has it in for Harry, too, escapes from Azkaban Prison. While trying to find out why Sirius murdered his parents, the young hero learns more about his own past and actually "hears" the end of his mothers life. In this third book of the Harry Potter series, Harry Hangs out with his friends Ron and Hermione, meets the "Hippogriffs" and "Dementors," and continues to make readers care very much about his fate.No Canadian Rights for the Harry Potter SeriesHARRY POTTER and all related characters and elements are trademarks of and © Warner Bros.

Powrót do Harrego Pottera po raz trzeci, czyli po prostu czas na trzecią część sagi o młodym czarodzieju. "Harry Potter i Więzień Azkabanu" jest wyjątkową powieścią, ponieważ w tej części nie pojawia się Sam Wiesz Kto. To chyba jedyny tom, w którym nasz czarny charakter nie występuje. W tej czę...
Stephen Fry hasn't disappointed yet! This book is so full of mystery--intrigue. Everyone is keeping secrets from Harry, and while they believe it's for his own good, it never is! They all praise him as the "Boy Who Lived" and then treat him with kid gloves. And in the end, it always does more ha...
Alright, once again, I finished the book almost two years ago and because I was in school and had other nonsense going on, I took very few notes and put off writing the review until now. I have few details to give, which is especially depressing when you’re giving a low rating to a book that is belo...
