HARRY POTTER                     
Back

Welcome to the world  of JK Rowling! It is a world of magic and wonders, a world where anything can happen. Many of the creatures in Rowling's world are not real, and much of what happens is strange. JK Rowling has written a series of books about Harry Potter, a boy with a scar on his forehead and a secret past. The books are about magic and strange creatures, but they still tell us something about the real world.

In the first book about Harry Potter, we meet Harry before he knows anything about magic. Harry seems like a normal boy, but his life is miserable. His parents are dead and he lives with a family that treats him badly. Harry is very unhappy and does not know what to do about his life. His life changes when a bird tells him to go to Hogwarts and become a student of witchcraft and wizardry.

Hogwarts is an unusual school where the students learn about magic. But for Harry, the most important lesson is about real life, friendship and how to be brave. Harry learns more than magic at Hogwarts. He makes new friends and learns how important and difficult it is to be a good friend. His friends help him when he is in trouble, but he must also be strong and help them when they need him. Harry also learns to be brave and to do things he used to be afraid of. He learns the truth about his past, a dark secret that will make his life and his choices more difficult. At Hogwarts, Harry also learns about the power of love. The magic, many strange creatures and the adventures Harry comes across at Hogwarts help him understand the real world.

Harry has to fight against bad wizards and do the right thing.  Together with his friends, Harry learns that it is not always easy to do what is right. You must believe in what you do and who you are if you want to succeed in the world – the magical world of Hogwarts and the real one. Where someone is born and what a person looks like is not as important as what he or she grows up to be. Two people may speak different languages, have different habits or even come from two different worlds, but they can still be friends if they share the same goals, hopes and dreams. It is not enough to be strong in heart and mind; we must also believe in ourselves and help others if we want to be happy and live a good life.
