This book is the best book in the world. Harry Potter thinks he is a normal boy, taunted by his cousin Dudley and hated by Aunt Petunia and and his uncle. No one is his friend. When a beetle-eyed jumbo of a man rescues him from his step-family, he is off on his first adventure at Hogwarts, facing danger and three-headed dogs, live checkerboards and smelly giants. I reccommend this book to anyone that likes magic.
