The summer holidays are dragging on and Harry Potter can''t wait for the start of the school year. It is his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and there are spells to be learned, potions to be brewed and Divination lessons (sigh) to be attended. Harry is expecting these; however, other quite unexpected events are already on the march ... "The saga of Harry Potter and his creator has almost reached the status of myth ... The books strike as deeply as the most timeless fairy tales. Harry and his friends seem intensely real-parents report a frequent refrain of ''they''re just like us.''" -Maclean''s "A richly imagined world to which young readers will surrender themselves, and one of the most attractive heroes to come around in a long while." -Globe and Mail "Harry Potter is the biggest phenomenon in kids'' publishing for decades ... Rowling has taken a classic formula and given it a contemporary (but not too contemporary) twist, where the hero crosses the boundary from the day-to-day mundanity to a world of magic and wonder." -Vancouver Sun More than six million Harry Potter books have sold in Canada.

From Our Editors

Junior Booklovers Contest Winner Aaron, age 11, Surrey, BC Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire is a thrilling and suspense-filled story that readers all over the world will enjoy. Harry Potter is an exciting gateway to an enchanted world of magic and curses, truth and lies, joy and sadness. All of this is woven into a plot so realistic that it seems you are there, with Harry, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. Harry is back at school again for his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and surprises are in store for him. This fourth book by J. K. Rowling takes the whole series to a new level of suspense and excitement. While the basic plot remains the same - Voldemort sets a trap to get Harry into his grasp to try and kill him and finish the job he started years ago - the twists and turns in this 636 page book will have you so engrossed in the plot that you will probably lose track of time. I highly recommend this book if you are an avid reader, because although J. K. Rowling has doubled the size of this book compared to the preceding ones, she has managed to capture the attention of her fans and keep it, from cover to cover. These books do not need to be sold to the reader as they are a part of a cult that seems to have gained a momentum of its own. One can safely bet that this book, like its predecessors, will be made into a movie. I do recommend, however, that you read the book before going to see the movie, as contrary to popular belief, words are worth

"A richly imagined world to which young readers will surrender themselves, and one of the most attractive heroes to come around in a long while." (Globe and Mail)

"Harry Potter is the biggest phenomenon in kids' publishing for decades ... Rowling has taken a classic formula and given it a contemporary (but not too contemporary) twist, where the hero crosses the boundary from the day-to-day mundanity to a world of magic and wonder." (Vancouver Sun)
