Book: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter #4) by J.K. Rowling

Harry is stuck with the Dursleys again for the summer. The Weasleys send an actual letter to them to ask permission to take Harry to the Quidditch Cup. They hesitantly agree because while they don’t want Harry to be happy, they don’t want him there either.

The Cup match is exciting. The drama after is a bit tense.

Finally, they are all at Hogwarts. When Dumbledore announces that there won’t be any quidditch this year Harry is upset. However, he tells them that Hogwarts is hosting the Tri-Wizard Tournament. There will be two other schools arriving to compete as well. Each school will have one champion.

When it’s time for the names to be drawn something odd happens. A fourth name comes out and it’s Harry Potter.

How did Harry’s name get in the goblet? What are the tasks they have to complete?

Harry’s summer goes from bad to worse when he learns that Aunt Marge is coming for a week. At the final dinner, he loses his temper and she turns into a giant balloon. Fearing the worst, he collects his belongings and flees. While not knowing where to go he sees a large dog. As a result of the fright he manages to summon the Knight Bus and gets a ride to the Leaky Cauldron. He’s not in as much trouble as he thought. He stays at the pub till school starts.

On the train, they meet their new professor, Lupin. Dementors search the train looking for Sirius Black. Apparently, he’s escaped from Azkeban. In a tragic twist of fate, he’s also Harry’s Godfather.

It’s a tumultuous year. Harry is nearly killed by dementors several times, Lupin turns into a werewolf and almost kills Harry and friends, and the truth about what happens to Harry’s parents comes out.

Book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

I was first introduced to this book series by my third graders when I was a teacher. I still love these books and reread them every few years.

Harry’s parents are killed protecting him from Lord Voldemort (also known as “He Who Must Not Be Named.” One of the most evil wizards in the world. As a result Harry grows up with his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon, quite sour and dour people. His cousin Dudley is even worse.

As a child he was lied to and told his parents died in a car accident. So when he gets a letter from Hogwarts he has no idea what it is. Luckily, Professor Dumbledore sends Hagrid to assist Harry in his school preparations. Since Uncle Vernon keeps moving the family it does pose a challenge. However, once Hagrid explains, as best as he can, to Harry about who he is Harry is thrilled to go to Hogwarts.

Once at school he is put into Gryffindor House, just like his parents. His first year is going as expected until it is discovered he’s a natural on a broom. He becomes the teams Seeker.

We also have a third floor corridor off limits this school year. It turns out that is where the Sorcerer’s Stone is being kept under heavy guard. Fluffy (a three headed dog) is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s clearly being protected from Voldemort.
