Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Review written by: Bree
5

This book is about a boy whose parents were killed by an evil wizard, and the boy, Harry Potter was magnificently not killed. Soon enough he ends up on his aunts door step. Then when harry was 11 years old he was accepted to Hogwarts Witchcraft and Wizardry and Harry also finds out he is a wizard. When harry is at Hogwarts he finds that a sorcerers stone might kill everyone without Harry's help. I really liked this book because there's a lot of adventure and its really exciting so I encourage anyone who likes adventure and action to read this book.

Artemis Fowl author to write Hitchhiker sequel

If you are a fan of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and its sequels, you may be happy to know that another book in the series is being written!  No, Douglas Adams, who died a few years ago, has not come back as a ghost to write it.  Instead, Eoin Colfer, who has written the Artemis Fowl series, will be penning it.  What do you think?
