For most children, summer vacation is something to look forward to. But not for our 13-year-old hero, who's forced to spend his summers with an aunt, uncle, and cousin who detest him. The third book in J.K. Rowling's
Harry Potter series catapults into action when the young wizard "accidentally" causes the Dursleys' dreadful visitor Aunt Marge to inflate like a monstrous balloon and drift up to the ceiling. Fearing punishment from Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon (and from officials at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who strictly forbid students to cast spells in the nonmagic world of Muggles), Harry lunges out into the darkness with his heavy trunk and his owl Hedwig.

As it turns out, Harry isn't punished at all for his errant wizardry. Instead he is mysteriously rescued from his Muggle neighborhood and whisked off in a triple-decker, violently purple bus to spend the remaining weeks of summer in a friendly inn called the Leaky Cauldron. What Harry has to face as he begins his third year at Hogwarts explains why the officials let him off easily. It seems that Sirius Black--an escaped convict from the prison of Azkaban--is on the loose. Not only that, but he's after Harry Potter. But why? And why do the Dementors, the guards hired to protect him, chill Harry's very heart when others are unaffected? Once again, Rowling has created a mystery that will have children and adults cheering, not to mention standing in line for her next book. Fortunately, there are four more in the works. (Ages 9 and older) --Karin Snelson



Reader Reviews
A shocking addition to the Hary Potter Series!!, October 26, 2003 Reviewer: eleneskim from USA Through the first two Harry Potter books we were amazed by the immagination and creativity that this author has produced. For this novel it is very much the same new characters and creatures are introduced that I believe will have a large effect on the story later on, the history of James is shown a bit more, as well as more of the school. Harry faces some of his toughest challenges yet in this book. Like in the second book many dangers are present off and on the quidditch field. Through reading all of the Harry Potter books up to this point this one is my favorite because of the introduction of these new characters. And with a convicted murderer on the loose you do not know how the story will end. --This text refers to the Paperback edition
