Book review on Harry Potter by Megan

In my opinion, the Harry Potter books are some of the best. My favourite would either be the one with the Tri-wizard Tournament or the Deathly Hallows. But I think it is best to start from the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. My favourite part of the book is when the half-giant called Hagrid barges into where Harry is and proclaims, “Yer a wizard, Harry!”.  My least favourite part was when Harry saw Voldemort’s face.

I recommend this book to everyone because it is interesting and fun.

I give this book 100/5.
