Review by Ava Smalley of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" by J. K. Rowling
In the book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, a giant named Rubeus Hagrid tells Harry that he is a wizard and he has a place at a school called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I was so excited to read the first Harry Potter book that I almost dropped it! After I read it for the first time, I felt really happy and excited to read the next one.
My favourite part was chapter seventeen: "The Man With Two Faces." Harry looks into The Mirror of Erised and sees himself placing the Philosopher's Stone into his pocket. I felt like I knew something that Voldemort didn't and I didn't want to put the book down because I wanted to know what would happen next. After I knew what would happen next, I wanted to read on to the end.
My least favourite part was when Voldemort hit Harry and knocked him out. It made me feel frightened of what would happen next.
I would recommend this book because once you start reading, you can't stop because it's that fascinating.
THANK YOU FOR READING MY BOOK REVIEW
