Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, J. K. Rowling (1997)
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a fantastic book and has so much more information than the movies. If you love Harry Potter as much as I do than I recommend to read the books FIRST then watch the movies.
Young Harry Potter finds out that he is a wizard after 11 years of part- living in the cupboard of No 4 Privet Drive. He finds out about the magical world of, well, magic and receiving letters from Hogwarts, it’s a delight to leave Privet Drive.
In reading this book, you’ll enjoy the adventures of the famous trio: Harry, Ron and Hermione and embark on the mysteries of Hogwarts with them.
