Harry Potter 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 his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. But all that changes when a mysterious letter arrives with an invitation to a place that Harry finds unforgettable. For it's there that he finds a great destiny that's been waiting for him...if Harry can survive the encounter. "Something quite special."New York Times Book Review.
