From #1 New York Times best-selling author J.K. Rowling comes the book that started a publishing phenomenon. The Harry Potter novels have sold millions of copies worldwide, inspired a series of blockbuster films, and prompted a string of imitators. Forced by his terribly unpleasant aunt and uncle to live in a cupboard under the stairs, Harry Potter does not know that he is destined for much bigger things. In fact, he's actually quite famous already. For what Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon know that Harry doesn't is that Harry is a powerful wizard, just like his parents were before they died. When Harry is whisked away to Hogwort's School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, he finds himself immersed in a magical world beyond imagination.

"If you haven't heard of Harry Potter then you haven't turned on your TV or radio or opened a newspaper in the last few months. For the uninitiated, Harry is a young orphan who is living with his nasty relatives when he's summoned to claim his magical heritage by attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. What could be better (or more satisfying to children) than studying, not English and chemistry, but Potions and Defense-Against-the-Dark-Arts? Jim Dale, with his fully voiced reading, brings the world of wizards to life in ways unimagined even by those who have read and re-read the book. The accents are sure, the inflections perfectly suit the characters, and some of Rowling's particularly inventive bits, like the game of Quidditch, become clearer. Sometimes poignant, often funny, Dale's interpretation of this enchanted other world is the consummate family-listening experience. S.G.
