Storytelling every bit as magical as that special phoenix-feather wand. Meet the most famous boy wizard in literature: ‘the boy who lived’. Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts School when the letters start dropping on the doormat at Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they’re swiftly snatched away by his nasty aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a beetle-eyed giant of a man bursts in with some astonishing news. Harry is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Do we even need to add that a mahoosive adventure is just about to begin?
