Just to sum it up, Harry Potter lives on Privet Drive with the mean Dursleys. One day, he gets a letter from a school named “Hogwarts” but, unfortunately, Mr.Dursley won’t let him go. Letters from the school pile up and eventually the Dursleys move to a house on an island isolated from other houses. They think all is well, but then a huge man named Hagrid tells Harry, he’s a wizard. He buys stuff at a place named Diagon Alley and rides a train to Hogwarts. He gets placed in a house named Gryffindor and goes on crazy adventures in school. You can read the book to hear more about it.

My overall favorite Element about the book is all the themes you can pull out like love and friendship.” She also said that she loved the wizard battles and how J.K Rowling made them interesting and exciting. Her favorite character is Harry Potter and she also likes Hermione Granger.
