A New World
Harry Potter is a young English boy who learns on his eleventh birthday that he is in fact a wizard. His parents died when he was only one year old, so he never knew that they were powerful wizards who had fought Voldemort, one of the most terrible wizards of all time. His uncle and aunt, who don’t like him very much, had always hidden this fact from him. Hagrid, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’s gamekeeper, took him to explain what was in store for him and introduced him to the wizarding world before leaving him at the train station where he was to take the Hogwarts Express on the mysterious 9 3/4. It is on the train that takes him to school for the first time that he will meet Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger who will become his best friends.
