Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Book/ Film: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Genre: Adventures

Author/ Director: J.K. Rowling

Characters/ Actors: Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley.


This one is the first book of Harry Potter's saga and its emergence fits in a perfect way to a fairies' history.

I chose this book because it is the reason why I started reading since I was just nine years old, and because as I began reading with it, lots of kids and teenagers around the world did. 

This is a story based on a child called Harry Potter, who had grown with his aunt Petunia, his uncle Vernon and his hateful cousin Duddley, after had suffered the loss of his parents, supposedly, in a car accident. When the years past and Harry was finally eleven, he met Hagrid, the gamekeeper of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, who told him the real story about his parents’ death (in the hands of the dark wizard Lord Voldemort) and revealed Harry a great notice: he was a real wizard. From that moment, Harry's life gave an overturn of 180 degrees, and there's when the magic story begins: in the following months he will discover a lot of things about this new world, and he will also be envolved in a fight against his father's murderer,  Lord Voldemort, trying to avoid him to get the Philosopher's Stone.

I believe that the author made a great work with this book: in the story, she includes a lot of children's characteristic problems, like the discrimination among themselves, which is a very important topic inside the story.
