Harry PotterMy book report is on Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. It was written by J. K. Rowling and published by Scholastic Press. This book has 435 pages. The book Harry Potter takes place at the Dursley's house in the beginning; the rest of it takes place at Hogwarts. Harry Potter is a thirteen-year-old wizard. He is famous Hogwarts and Diagon Alley for having warded off a curse from Voldemort, the most powerful dark wizard. Harry was left with a small lightening-bolt-shaped scar after the encounter. Harry does not remember these events, and was left without any parents so he lives with his aunt, uncle, and cousin. These relatives do not tolerate any mention of magic in the house. Harry has close friendships, enemies, dilemmas, and triumphs just like any other thirteen-year-old boy. But Harry is distinct because of his courage and loyalty. Harry comes face to face with Sirius Black because he entered the Whomping Willow in attempt to rescue his best friend Ron. Harry is not a typical or mythological hero, but he lives up to his fame by bravely entering situations with the inborn faith that someone-either himself or someone he has befriended-will get him through the situation alive.Ron is Harry Potter's best friend. Unlike Harry, he has no financial means. His father is a highly ranked member of the Ministry of Magic, but Ron is often picked on by Malfoy for wearing tattered robes, for living in an old house, and for not having a rich father. He and Harry are inseparable, and he is often perceived to be a sidekick to the famous Harry Potter. Ron feels valued by Harry and doesn't seem to mind this on a regular basis, although in spurts he seems to feel deflated and glossed over. He is adventurous, like Harry and somewhat mischievous but always with good intentions, also like Harry. Ron has a wry, skeptical sense of humor.Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban begins on the night before Harry's thirteenth birthday, when he receives gifts by Owl Post from his friends at school. The next morning at breakfast, Harry sees on television that a man named Black is on the loose from prison. Harry leaves the Dursley's house and is picked up by the Knight Bus, but only after an alarming sighting of a large, black dog. Before Harry heads off to Hogwarts, he overhears Ron's parents discussing the fact that Sirius Black is after Harry.Sirius Black breaks into Hogwarts and destroys the Fat Lady portrait that guards Gryffindor Tower. Quidditch starts, and Gryffindor House plays against Hufflepuff. During the game, Harry sees a hoard of Dementors. He loses consciousness and falls off his broomstick. Harry wakes to find that his trusty broomstick had flown into the Whomping Willow and been smashed in his fall. Later, Harry learns from Lupin that the Dementors affect Harry so much because Harry's past is so horrible.Fred and George Weasley give Harry the Marauder's map, written by the mysterious quartet of Moony,...
