Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

The book was excellent, as I assumed it would be. Jim Dale does a fine job of narrating, but I still don’t understand why we don’t have the UK version (narrated by Stephen Fry) in Canada since we get the printed UK version instead of the US one. Regardless, I recommend it very highly. A fabulously entertaining listen!
