Harry is a quiet eleven year old boy living a pathetic life at his aunt and uncle’s house. His uncle and aunt do everything in their power to be unpleasant to him, and it doesn’t help that they have a bully for a son whose mission in life seems to be annoying little Harry to no end.
They live in a regular grey street, Privet Drive, surrounded by grey people with equally grey dispositions. Nothing unusual ever occurs at Privet DriveUntil one day, a group of owls take over. Swarms of owls show up everywhere around Privet Drive and strange things begin to occur. When Uncle Vernon, in order to escape the insanity surrounding them, takes them to an island, he thinks that his troubles and the secrets that he has been keeping won’t follow him there.
His expectations are quite off the mark, though.
In the middle of the night, a giant man who goes by the name of Hagrid bursts through their door, and reveals to Harry things so extraordinary that he cannot quite believe his ears.
Harry James Potter, the son of Lily and James Potter, has been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. To his surprise, Harry realizes that he is the most famous wizard alive.
Harry soon befriends two students he meets on the train, Ron and Hermione. They prove to be his best friends as he embarks on a journey of dangerous magical adventures. Harry learns about his dark nemesis, Lord Voldemort, and the history they share, and comes to realize that there is a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. As he uncovers secrets about his life and the wizarding world at large, he also uncovers the greatest of them all: the secret of the philosopher’s stone.
What will the fabled philosopher's stone come to mean in the course of the story? How will Harry fare as he takes on bigger and much more powerful forces?

LOVELY,AMAZIN YOU'D LOVE THE BOOK J.K ROWLING JUST ROXXXBefore the start of the novel, Voldemort, considered the most powerful dark wizard in history, killed Harry's parents but mysteriously vanished after trying to kill Harry. While the wizarding world was celebrating Voldemort's downfall, Professor Dumbledore, Professor McGonagall and Rubeus Hagrid placed the one year-old orphan in the care of his Muggle (non-wizard) uncle and aunt: Vernon and Petunia Dursley.
