Harry Potter thinks of himself as quite the ordinary boy. Although he does live in the cupboard under the stairs at his guardians´ house. Harry´s life is changed completely when he receives a mysterious letter on his 11th birthday. It is an invitation to Hogwarts school of Wizardry and Witchcraft. A whole new world opens up to Harry, a world of wizards and witches, unicorns and dragons. Harry is let known to belong to a bloodline of wizards, and to be a wizard himself!
But still everything must start from the beginning. At Hogwarts Harry studies the basic elements of magic; such as transformations, art of potion-making, spells and defence against the dark arts. School life is great fun, but it turns breath-takingly exciting when Harry starts to solve a fascinating mystery along with his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger - and You-Know-Who has his hands in the mix as well...
