I read this aloud to my boys. They loved it and wanted me to read it to them all the time until we finished it!
My husband and I enjoyed this series before we had children!
Harry discovers on his eleventh birthday that he is actually a wizard. Once at Hogwarts, he and his friends stumble upon a secret. Using their gifts and wits, they overcome the evil trying to invade Hogwarts.
Exciting! Very creative writing.
Warning/points to discuss: lying, witchcraft, murder (Harry's parents), talk of killing, use of the phrase "shut up"
