For new Harry Potter fans, this Guide will give you a jump start on the people, places and a basic review of spells that are part of the Harry Potter universe. But be warned: some facts are not correct. For example, in page 115 of my Nook, Arthur Weasley placed a spell on the Ford Anglia, but Arthur did not help rescue Harry from the Dursley's before the start of the second year. His youngest son, Ron, along with his twin brothers, Fred and George, help Harry escape from Privet Drive. I rated this with four stars, because most facts are correct. But for devoted Harry Potter fans, they will spot the few errors in the book.

Although I have read all of the Harry Potter books more than ten times each, I picked up a few gems. I'm still looking for Rowling's favorite children's book. Enjoy this reasonably priced book and share with another Potter fan. Ms. Rowling's Harry Potter Series got soooooo many kids and adults reading we all should learn more about what she got us to read.

.............and honestly jumping into a pool of ice cold water is the stupidest thing Harry Potter has EVER done. And he was naked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is the point in that????????????? :0

...than I had hoped. E.g. the "Jorkins, Bertha" entry claims she was a Hogwarts student whom Voldemort killed in 1994. She was a MoM employee at the time of her death, and apparently had been for many years, as Sirius says she was a year or 2 ahead of him. So it had been many years since she was in school.

I have read the series twenty-one times and seen all the movies, most of them twice! I know every single actor of every single character in every single movie. I am still re re re re re re re re re re re re re re re re re re re re re reading the series. Harry Potter is my idol. J.K Rowling is amazing! Did you see the last Olympics? This huge (and when I say huge, I mean huge) statue of Voldemort was standing almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower and his wand kept spitting fireworks. It was SO amazing. And J.K. Rowling came up in this huge limo and started signing autographs... it was great. Go, Harry!
