Harry Potter is a wizard people! That’s not really a spoiler since most of the world has seen the movies and a lot have read the books and he’s riding a broom on the cover of this book. We all know women who ride on broomsticks are witches and male witches are wizards. Now that that’s settled, Harry’s whole life is about to change when he gets an invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry which is a step up from living in a closet at his aunt and uncle’s house. At school he’ll learn magic, make friends, get into trouble and has a run-in with the most powerful wizard who’s name should never be said: Voldemort.
