Harry Potter and Sorcerers Stone
This was chosen because this book was written so long ago. J.K. Rowling is the author. It actually won most British book awards by children in the U.S. It was number one on the New York Times Best Selling in 1999 and still in 2000. Supposedly J.K. Rowlings books have been accused of encouraging witchcraft, but yet are still made into movies and doesnt stop the books from selling. Even if it does involve witchcraft, it still has encouraging lessons throughout the story.
