Orphaned, Harry Potter was reluctantly taken in by his cruel and mean-spirited Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia, who did not hesitate to make him sleep in the closet under the stairs. Constantly mistreated, he must also put up with the whining of his cousin Dudley, a greedy boy who is spoiled by his parents. On their side, Vernon and Petunia hate their nephew whose presence constantly reminds them of the “unpredictable” temperament of the boy’s parents and their mysterious death.
As Harry approaches his 11th birthday, he doesn’t expect anything special – not a card, not a present, not even a birthday party. But that’s when he discovers that he is the son of two powerful magicians and that he, too, has extraordinary powers. When he is offered a place at the prestigious Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he finally finds the home and family he has always missed… and embarks on the adventure of a lifetime.
