Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and his cousin Dudley, who make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed for ever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! - synopsis from Pottermore website.
A recent viewing of the film series made me nostalgic for the novels and so with them now available on Kindle I decided to re-read them. While the story was well known to me there were still details that had slipped from memory.
I adore the series and it was wonderful to return to Hogwarts and its students and teachers.
