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.

It takes the reader to the scariest depths of Hogwart's. At t...
This rating reflects the art. For the text - click here. Beautiful illustrations, some better choices. I had more words about the illustrated editions, but they got lost somewhere along the way. I only noticed they were gone when I started trying to fix some of the more important dead links in the...
It was good! And It was great to read a Harry Potter story on the actual date of Harry's birthday! But in my opinion, there were not enough illustrations in this one. I needed more!! (but still, the book is really pretty)
