Is there anybody left in the Muggle world who hasn't heard of Harry Potter, or read his extraordinary and exciting adventures? In this first book in the series, which catapulted J.K. Rowling to the very heights of literary fame, Harry discovers that he is no ordinary boy but a wizard of great renown and that he is expected at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Moreover, at Hogwarts he encounters "He Who Must Not Be Named", a master of magic whose ambition is more dark and terrifying than Harry can possibly imagine. --back cover
