It's always a relief after summer with the Dursleys, however, Harry doesn't realise that this year will be just as eventful as the last two! The atmosphere at Hogwarts is tense. There's an escaped mass murderer on the loose, even the Muggles have been warned. The sinister prison guards of Azkaban have been called in to guard the school and Harry, Ron and Hermione rapidly discover why all witches and wizards live in fear of being sent to Azkaban. Lessons, however, must go on and there are lots of new subjects in third year - Care of Magical Creatures and Divination among others. Plus the delights of Hogsmeade, the only village in the UK entirely populated by the magical community. The Author: Jo Rowling lives in Edinburgh with her daughter Jessie. "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" was her first novel. She came up with the idea for Harry Potter when she was on a train. She is currently working on the fourth out of a potential series of seven Harry Potter books.Read Less
My wife and I love the book. We really like the book on CD. It's wonderful to listen while traveling. As very one who has read the Harry Potter series knows, it's one of those books you can't put down . The story is exciting, suspenseful and imaginative. I recommend this book and the series to readers of all ages.

Great book and series! I love the way this book reads and have read it out loud to my friends who don't read as well as I do.

The Harry Potter series of books are probably the best books I've ever read... and I've read a ton of books. I love them all! If you're 40 and you haven't read these because you think they're children's books - think again!!! These are a must read!! I've read several more than once!
