Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone introduction
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a 1997 fantasy novel written by British author J. K. Rowling. The first novel in the Harry Potter series and Rowling’s debut novel. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone it is a story about Harry Potter, an orphan brought up by his aunt and uncle because his parents were killed when he was a baby by Voldemort.
Harry is unloved by his uncle and aunt but everything changes when he is invited to join Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and he finds out he’s a wizard. At Hogwarts Harry realises he’s special and his adventures begin when he and his new friends Ron and Hermione attempt to unravel the mystery of the Philosopher’s Stone.
J. K. Rowling has a gift for keeping the emotions, fears, and triumphs of her characters on a human scale, even while the supernatural is popping out all over. The book is full of wonderful, sly humor and the characters are impressively three-dimensional and move along seamlessly through the narrative.
arry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is as funny, moving and impressive as the story behind its writing. Like Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling has wizardry inside, and has soared beyond her modest Muggle surroundings to achieve something quite special.

Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility. All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley – a great big swollen spoiled bully.
Harry’s room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn’t had a birthday party in eleven years. But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry – and anyone who reads about him – will find unforgettable.
Whether they’re committed Potterheads who grew up reading the world-changing fantasy series or children just old enough to enjoy the stories for the very first time, readers will want to pore over this stunning illustrated edition, which features the full and unabridged text (with the exception of the title, the text is from the original British edition).
From the dark and stormy endpapers to the ink-sploshed pages to Kay’s expressive pencil and watercolor illustrations adorning almost every page, the story of Harry’s humble beginnings with the wretched Dursleys, the arrival of his letter from Hogwarts, and his first adventures as “the boy who lived” come to brilliant life in this beautiful and beautifully designed edition.
Reading Harry Potter is always exciting, especially the first book that shocked the fantasy world. The author with her new world of wizards, magic and mythological creatures has been able to link the youth with the school, where each of us has lived unforgettable moments, with a compelling and exciting plot that has changed the path of fantasy, dictated until the book came out by Tolkien. Even though Tolkien dominates fantasy with its historical and sought-after structure of the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter carries within him a youthful side, a young fantasy that has inspired many other novels and stories. His magic lies in simple things, where even children can daydream about Hogwarts school. Surely Harry Potter has left an indelible mark on our hearts, a mark like Harry’s scar, a mark that will remain forever in each of us.
