Harry Potter

A great YA series. Book 1 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, sets up the series. Harry Potter lives with his aunt and uncle who treat him like a hated servant. He lives in the cupboard under the stairs. On his 11th birthday, Harry finds that he can do things he shouldn't be able to(magic). When the mail comes, he gets the invite to go to Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry. His aunt and uncle try to hide the notices to no avail. Eventually even hiding from it doesn't help and Harry finally gets to go the school. The stories are all about friendship and the power of good against evil. Harry meets a boy named Ron and a girl named Harmonie, who become his best friends. In the wizarding world Harry is already famous for the boy who lived, from a attack against the evil Voldermort. Each story has a danger element regarding the evil wizard. There are 7 books in the series. Each book gets bigger as the series goes through. The movies out are wonderful as well. The 1st 2 movies are almost exactly like the books. As the books get bigger more of the books are left out. Harry Potter's series get a lot of bad press because of the magic part of the story. But what kid wouldn't want to be able to say a few words and make something move or the bad kid grow a pig tail? The magic just captures the kids attention, for the shock value. The true story is the fact these 3 kids love, protect and grow together in each book. The story of friendship and love over coming any obstacle. Were being nice to others and having morals is a good thing. For me the series is a wonderful storyline and I can't wait to read them with my son. Highly recommended for all ages.
