Because on top rated of it all, there may nicely be a traitor in their midst. Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to exactly where he may possibly be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall too. And the Azkban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep,"He's at Hogwarts. Convicted of killing thirteen individuals with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort. he's at Hogwarts.
For most children, summer vacation is one thing to appear forward to. The third book in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series catapults into action when the young wizard"accidentally"causes the Dursleys' dreadful visitor Aunt Marge to inflate like a monstrous balloon and drift up to the ceiling. Fearing punishment from Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon (and from officials at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who strictly forbid students to cast spells in the nonmagic world of Muggles) , Harry lunges out into the darkness with his heavy trunk and his owl Hedwig. But not for our 13-year-old hero, who's forced to devote his summers with an aunt, uncle, and cousin who detest him.
Because it turns out, Harry isn't punished at all for his errant wizardry. Fortunately, there are four more within the works. What Harry has to face as he begins his third year at Hogwarts explains why the officials let him off easily. Once again, Rowling has developed a mystery that may have young children and adults cheering, not to mention standing in line for her next book. But why? Not only that, but he's immediately after Harry Potter. Instead he is mysteriously rescued from his Muggle neighborhood and whisked off in a triple-decker, violently purple bus to devote the remaining weeks of summer in a friendly inn named the Leaky Cauldron. And why do the Dementors, the guards hired to safeguard him, chill Harry's very heart when other men and women are unaffected? (Ages 9 and older) --Karin Snelson It seems that Sirius Black--an escaped convict from the prison of Azkaban--is on the loose.
