Vernon is the director of a drill company called Grunnings , while Petunia does housework and looks after Dudley, yet she always spends so much time craning over garden fence to spy on the neighbours. Despite all this, the Dursley family are the least people anyone expects to be involved in anything funny or disturbing, for they don't hold with such nonsense in their daily lives.

The story begins on a Tuesday 1 November , , where many absurd things happen. When all three Dursleys are gossiping happily at breakfast trying to wrestle Dudley in his high chair, none of them even notice a large tawny owl flutter pass their window.

It eventually comes to Vernon's attention when he is heading to work shortly afterwards, and sees a silver tabby cat reading a map and later a street sign. He attempts to convince himself that these are merely coincidences.

Next, he sees people in cloaks talking in hushed voices, and while he is sitting in his office, a flock of owls fly past his window. On his break, Vernon goes to a bakery to get a bun and sees another group of extravagantly-cloaked figures.

Even though they are speaking in hushed voices, he eavesdrops on some of their conversation, which includes a mention of "the Potters and their son Harry.

He and Petunia will be embarrassed if people find out that they are related to them, as the Potter family are very strange, in their opinion. When he leaves his workplace at the end of the day, he bumps into a very small, cloaked man , who tells him that someone named " You-Know-Who " has been defeated, and that even Muggles like Vernon should be celebrating. Vernon doesn't know what a Muggle is, but is offended that the man called him one.

That night, when Vernon arrives at home, he turns on the news and becomes suspicious when the newsman states that owls have been seen everywhere earlier in the day, and that fireworks have been spotted in Kent.

Vernon asks Petunia if she and her sister have been in touch, but she becomes angry and denies it as she does not like to talk about her. When the Dursleys go to bed, a long bearded old man in a purple cloak appears out of nowhere outside of their home. The man, Albus Dumbledore , syphons all of the light from the street lamps with his Deluminator , then meets with the cat that Vernon had seen earlier that morning, who transforms into a whisky old woman named Minerva McGonagall.

A few moments later, a motorbike with a gigantic man, Rubeus Hagrid , riding it lands right in front of them, carrying baby Harry.

Hagrid himself leaves to bring the motorbike back to its actual owner , but not before giving Harry a kiss goodbye on the scarred forehead which burns his lips.

McGonagall reverts back into the cat and slinks around the corner at the other end of the street, but Dumbledore stays to unsyphon the light from the street lamps and bid Harry farewell before vanishing without a trace. Harry rolls over inside his bundle of blankets with his small hand closing on the letter as he sleeps on, not knowing he is special and famous, nor that he will be woken up the next morning by his Aunt Petunia's scream when she opens the front door to put out the milk bottles, nor that he will be spending the next few weeks being prodded and pinch by his cousin Dudley.

And he will never know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country are holding up glasses and saying in hushed voices: "To Harry Potter -- the boy who lived! The only difference is the vast number of pictures of Dudley Dursley throughout his life.

Editorial Reviews Amazon. Then, in an absurd, magical twist of fate you find yourself surrounded by wizards, a caged snowy owl, a phoenix-feather wand, and jellybeans that come in every flavor, including strawberry, curry, grass, and sardine.

Not only that, but you discover that you are a wizard yourself! This is exactly what happens to young Harry Potter in J. Rowling's enchanting, funny debut novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. In the nonmagic human world--the world of "Muggles"--Harry is a nobody, treated like dirt by the aunt and uncle who begrudgingly inherited him when his parents were killed by the evil Voldemort.

But in the world of wizards, small, skinny Harry is famous as a survivor of the wizard who tried to kill him. He is left only with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead, curiously refined sensibilities, and a host of mysterious powers to remind him that he's quite, yes, altogether different from his aunt, uncle, and spoiled, piglike cousin Dudley.

Ages 8 to 13 --Karin Snelson. Readers are in for a delightful romp with this award-winning debut from a British author who dances in the footsteps of P. See all Editorial Reviews.

The first time is a precious memory to me. Our four children would all climb into our king size bed before bedtime and we would read one or two chapters each evening.

We homeschooled so, as each child's reading progressed, they read a part too. Their mom died. They're in late 20s now. Five grandkids. Those will be ready to read to before we know it. But life is not always neatly packaged.

I married a widow and moved us all. Today they are off to their own lives. My four and I are scattered across four states and even overseas. So, I'm reading to myself now.

I can't make a stronger recommendation than to say that I immediately purchased "The Order Of The Phoenix" after finishing this one. I also have the set in hardbound on the bookshelf beside me. But Kindle is just too convenient. The book started out good but discovered as I was reading it that it's missing almost 50 pages in the middle of the book.

Disappointing and frusterating. The book has a printing error where pages are missing and in the wrong order. At page , the next page is number I've included images of the book where the error is. If you turn pages ahead, the pages repeat pages again and then rejoin the proper page chronology at page Also, pages are completely missing so I can't even read them in a different section and finish the story. I'm probably the only person on earth who had never read Harry Potter. I'm taking seriously Amazon's rating system in which 4 stars means "I liked it" and 5 stars means "I loved it.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was a fun read, creative, humorous, more absorbing than I expected. As someone who strongly prefers realism over fantasy, I thought I might be bored, but I wasn't. I genuinely enjoyed the book, which had good character development and never stopped moving. But I wasn't sorry when the book ended, and I don't plan to read the others in the series.

Fantasy is just not my genre.Get to Know Us. Harry Potter come and live here! The Hidden Oracle. It was no good. I couldn't put this book down. The Blood of Olympus.

Naomi Wood. The Dursleys shuddered to think what the neighbors would say if the Potters arrived in the street. People are being downright careless, out on the streets in broad daylight, not even dressed in Muggle clothes, swapping rumors. Aunt Petunia tells him to make some bacon, as she wants everything perfect for Dudley's 11th birthday.

I do like studying docunments thankfully. Also read my other articles. I have a variety of hobbies, like four wheeling.
