’s Stone Essay, Research Paper
Harry Potter starts off slow, but gets very interesting near the end. In the beginning, you
meet the Dursleys, Harry’s aunt, uncle, and their son Dudley. Then you learn that Harry’s
parents were witches, and that they were destroyed by a evil wizard. A good witch, Albus
Dumbeldoor, sends Harry to the Dursleys, because they’re his only remaining family. The
Dursleys however, hated Harry and his family, so Harry was mistreated for years. He was
forced to live in a cuborrod under the stairs. He had to watch as the fat, stuck up Dudley
got whatever he wanted, and then usually broke whatever it was he got. Then one day
Harry got a letter.
As Harry was beginning to read the letter, his uncle, Vernon Dursley, took it from
him. After reading the letter, Uncle Vernon ripped it up and threw it into the fireplace.
But, Harry got more letters. Uncle Vernon started going crazy, and he boarded up the
whole house. So Harry’s letters started coming through the chimney. After they came
through the chimney, Uncle Vernon made every one pack up and then they just drove for
hours on end. After they finally finished driving, they found out that Uncle Vernon had
rented a small house, which was really more a shack, that was out on an island. They had
to take a small boat a row out to the house. But, this didn’t stop the letters, except this
time they were personally delivered.
The letters were personally delivered by a giant witch named Hagrid. Hagrid
explained to Harry about his parents and how they died, and he told Harry that he was a
witch. Hagrid also told Harry that Harry would be going to the finest witch school in all
the land, Hogwarts. So, Harry and Hagrid set off to by Harry’s school supplies.
To buy these supplies, Hagrid and Harry had to go to another dimention, where
only witches could go. After they got there, Harry found out that he was famous because
the witch who killed his parents couldn’t kill Harry. Because he couldn’t kill Harry, the
witch had disappeared for some reason. After Harry had everything he needed, he was
sent back to the Dursleys.
After he was with the Dursleys for a couple months, Harry went off on a train to
Hogwarts. When he got to Hogwarts, Harry made a couple friends, and an enemy. After a
while Harry became a total snoop around the school. He found out that the evil wizard
that tried to kill him was going to have some one steal the Sorcerers Stone from a hidden
location at Hogwarts. But Harry knew where this hidden location was.
So Harry went to stop this person from stealing the stone, and just before they
killed Harry, Dumbeldoor showed up and saved Harry.
