Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Why this book?
Engrossed and enthralled, I was swept into the Harry Potter world from the first chapter. I didn't want to leave, I was involved, I was part of it! A magic world is revealed to a lonely twelve-year-old Harry. A move to a boarding school for students of magic! Friends, feasts and foes, and a school year that brings him face to face with danger. My lifelong feeling that magic, mystery, and enormous possibilities were at our fingertips was echoed in this book nothing in this story was predictable or stale and it never became so in this amazing seven-book series.
