bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake
surrounding a large letter 'H'.
Harry Potter has never even heard of
Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four,
Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a
purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle.
Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man
called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter
is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and
An incredible adventure is about to begin.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.'
summer has included the worst birthday ever, doomy warnings from a
house-elf called Dobby, and rescue from the Dursleys by his friend Ron
Weasley in a magical flying car! Back at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft
and Wizardry for his second year, Harry hears strange whispers echo
through empty corridors - and then the attacks start. Students are found

to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or
wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you
anywhere you want to go.'
When the Knight Bus crashes through the
darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of
another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius
Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the
run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever

test the champions in many different ways... their magical prowess -
their daring - their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability
to cope with danger.'
The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at
Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but
that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then
at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is
amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out.
He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the

thinks it inadvisable for this to continue. He wishes me to teach you
how to close your mind to the Dark Lord.'
Dark times have come to
Hogwarts. After the Dementors' attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter
knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many
who deny the Dark Lord's return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order
gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the Dark forces. Harry must
allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from
Voldemort's savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger
by the day and Harry is running out of time.

Dumbledore arrives at Privet Drive one summer night to collect Harry
Potter, his wand hand is blackened and shrivelled, but he does not
reveal why. Secrets and suspicion are spreading through the wizarding
world, and Hogwarts itself is not safe. Harry is convinced that Malfoy
bears the dark mark: there is a Death Eater amongst them. Harry will
need powerful magic and true friends as he explores voldemort's darkest
secrets, and Dumbledore prepares him to face his destiny...

skies, leaving Privet Drive for the last time, Harry Potter knows that
Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters are not far behind. The protective
