Review by Sam Hard.
Harry Potter is a young boy living in the suburbs of London with his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Dursley. Everything should be just fine. But, Harry has to compete with his cousin. It seems just like pure torture for Harry. But after a strange trip to the zoo where a snake escapes after Harry talks to it, an owl appears with a letter.

Pretty soon after this, a giant man named Hagrid comes and whisks young Harry away to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Then he is told that he is the one who killed the worst wizard of all time, Voldemort. After this Harry and his friends come face to face with Voldemort himself. Will Harry be able to stop him again?

I think this book is good because it thrills you and will keep you turning the page. I think this book is good for children in grades 2nd-7th and adults of all ages. I think that you should also read the other books in the series.

Review by Luke Mahoney.
This book is about a British boy living with his cruel aunt and uncle and nasty cousin Dudley. He gets mistreated a lot, but one day he gets a letter from a magic school, Hogwarts. He has lots of crazy adventures with his friends Ron and Hermione in the 7 book series at Hogwarts and conquers death many times. I thought this book was an amazing mystery/fantasy book. If you like a good action packed scary and magical book, you would love this book.

Review by Tess Davidson.
In this book, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger must go on a quest to save the Sorcerer's Stone. This book is great because there is a great mix of characters whose personalities are different, yet similar. Magic-lovers, read this book!!!

Review by Beth Lynn.
Harry Potter is a wizard. His mom and dad were wizards and were killed by Lord Voldemort. He was a wizard at Hogwarts School of Witch Craft and Wizardry. He went to live with the only family he had left, his aunt, uncle, and cousin. He lives in the Gryffindor tower and competes against other houses. I recommend this book if you like fantasy and science fiction books.

Review by Griffin Girard.
Harry Potter, your average British boy has lived with his aunt and uncle the Dursleys for his entire life. But one day his life changes. Letters get sent from Hogwarts a school of withcraft and wizardry. Harry ventures to Hogwarts to meet good friends, learn about his past, and have a full on experience with the wizarding war. Harry Potter is a great book for anyone wanting to read a story that is rich with excitement and wonder. A real page turner is what I would call it. I would read a chapter or so at night and for the rest of the day all I could think about was Harry Potter. By far this is the best book I have read. Once you read the first book you have to read the whole series.

Review by Ava Girard.
I think this is a great book. I love how there are so many books in the series. I love how this book just holds onto you. I love how adventurous it is.
