Prince William Public Libraries Harry Potter has been raised by his horrible relatives, Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia, who treat him with disdain while lavishing attention on their spoiled son Dudley. On the eve of his eleventh birthday, Harry receives news that changes his life: he is being summoned to attend the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry is astonished to learn that his deceased parents, James and Lily Potter, were both wizards, and that they died trying to protect infant Harry from a Dark wizard named
Voldemort. He also discovers, much to his own discomfort, that he is famous in the wizarding world; Voldemort’s attack on Harry has not only left a lightning-shaped scar on Harry’s forehead, but has taken away Voldemort’s power as well.
At school Harry soon makes both friends and enemies with equal ease. Ron Weasley becomes Harry’s sidekick, and Hermione Granger, who at first appears to be a boring know-it-all, quickly proves that she is a fast friend too, and the three become a team. Draco Malfoy, a bully and a bigot, along with his cronies, Crabbe and Goyle, become Harry’s enemies. Involved with classes, teachers, and Quidditch, an aerial sport played on broomsticks, Harry is also intrigued by the mystery of a hidden object,
guarded by a three-headed dog. The attempt to solve the mystery with his friends brings Harry face to face with his nemesis, Voldemort, in the disguise of someone he least suspects.
