When I read this book, I felt scared for Harry, because of all that he went through. I would be scared, too if I found out that I was a wizard and had to go to a magical school.
I would recommend this book to anyone that might have always felt different from others.
The setting takes place at Hogwarts, a secret and magical school for witches and wizards.
This book is about a boy that who learns that he is a famous wizard.
At the end the book, Harry Potter had learned more spells, had important knowledge of his life, and had fought Voldemort.
The theme is learning who you really are and accepting it.
There wasn't any really noticeable sarcasm or metaphors.
The message was that you always have to be brave.
This book is a lot about fantasy, but could be real because of all the hidden details not known by the people around.
The Harry Potter movie is something like the book, but the book makes it easier to know Harry's feelings and thoughts.
There aren't many illustrations in this book, only at the beginning of chapters.
The author might have come up with these crazy ideas for Harry Potter as a kid, and published them when he got older.
There are really known facts because the info is hidden from non-wizards.
It is a fantasy.
Pro- It will save paper, Con- none
