Harry Potter is a scrawny eleven-year old orphan boy who lives with his aunt and uncle on respectable, ordinary Privet Drive. The only thing extraordinary about him is the lightning-shaped scar on his forehead. But on his eleventh birthday a mysterious letter appears from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Harry Potter finds himself in a world he never knew existed—and a world in which everybody knows his name. For Harry Potter is famous throughout the wizarding world for being the baby that the evil Lord Voldemort tried—and failed—to murder. As Harry navigates the ups and downs of his first year at Hogwarts, strange things begin to happen, and Harry suspects that Voldemort may be rising again.
