For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.

Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts . . . he's at Hogwarts."

Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.

                Harry Potter can make things fly away without touching them. He can conjure up a white figure to protect him. Harry has his very own flying transportation. Harry Potter has survived encounters with deadly villains. No, he's not a superhero. Instead, he is a wizard! When Harry's parents refused to obey the evil wizard Voldemort, they were killed. Harry survived, though, His parents' friends gave him to his aunt and uncle, and he lived there for years, not knowing who he was. On his 11th birthday, however, Harry learned that he was a wizard. Now, it's Harry Potter's 3rd year at the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. This year, Harry will be put under even more supervision than usual. Sirius Black, a dangerous wizard, and murderer of 13 had escaped from Azkaban Prison, the most secure wizard jail in the world. Now, people think that Sirius will try to kill Harry. Will he make it through the school year alive? I recommend this to people who like magic and aren't worried about reading a really thick book.

                    Harry Potter was famous because of an incident when he was a child. He grew up with a horrible family, the Dursleys. Soon he finds out he is a wizard. The books are the story of young, famous, Harry Potter and his adventures in Hogwarts with his best friends. The theme of the book is friendship and love is worth more than a million dollars. I recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure and friendship.
