Length: 8 hrs and 34 mins
Date Read: June 2009
Harry Potter has never played a sport while flying on a broomstick. He's never worn a Cloak of Invisibility, befriended a giant, or helped hatch a dragon. All Harry knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry's room is a tiny cupboard under the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in ten years.
But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to a wonderful place he never dreamed existed. There he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic around every corner, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him... if Harry can survive the encounter.

I love Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It is great to be introduced to the characters and how their friendships were formed. I have to say one of my favorite moments is learning how the 3 kids became friends because there are some things you just share that you cannot help but become friends and Downing Mountain Trolls are one of them. This is one of my favorite series to read and love my annual re-reading of them. If you are one of the few that have not read the books–you really should whether your young or young at heart!
