and the Sorceror's Stone
By: J.K. Rowling
My review of this fascinating book
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is the first book in a very popular series. The book was so popular they made a movie of it. Children, as well as adults, will enjoy this book. Harry Potter and his friends attend a magical school. They are on a mission trying to get the sorcerer's stone back from his professor. This book is amazing and people who enjoy fantasy or myths will love it! I especially liked that it was packed with action and loaded with adventure. Wow, what a terrific story. It kept me reading and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
