Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré
Date Read: July 2016
Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It's assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney's ghoulish predictions seriously?

NOTE: June 26, 2011 marks my “Gosh I don’t know how many times I have read this book” annual Re-Read! I will be changing all my ratings of this series to 5 because I have come to the conclusion that if I can re-read them this many times they are worthy of a 5!
What I Loved: What didn’t I love! This is one of my favorite books in the series 🙂 I love Lupin, Sirius, and how the kids are growing. This was fun if for no other reason that how the book ended—Harry finally had something to keep the Dursleys sort of in line over the summer holidays.
What I Liked: I really liked that there were lots of Hagrid moments in this book. He is one of my favorite side characters and I love how Dumbledore treats him.
Who I would recommend this too: Anyone–no seriously, you should read it!
Why I gave it a 5: Well written, fun, and did I mention Lupin and Sirius? Oh plus a magical map that any kid would have killed for in school.
