about

Harry Potter, an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs, discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft."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
