Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

 Since my hobby is reading books, I have read lots of books. Among them, my favorite book is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. This book is enchanting, spell binding and it keeps the reader engrossed in the book until the end. The author of this magical book is J.K. Rowling. It was first published in Great Britain by Bloomsbury.

The book is about an orphaned boy named Harry Potter. His parents were killed by a beast called Voldermort. On the same day, Voldermort also tried to kill Harry but somehow his powers vanished when he tried to kill Harry. Hence Harry was safe. Then two professors of Hogwarts took Harry to his aunt and uncle who treated Harry badly. Harry started getting letters from someone saying that he has a place at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Next, an incredible adventure begins. Read this fascinating and amusing book to find out the rest. This is the most wonderful book I have ever read.
