After blowing up purple-faced Aunt Marge, Harry finds himself on the road in Mongolia Crescent, all alone when he feels somebody looking at him. It is a gigantic black dog. Harry trips on his trunk and his wand is thrown on the floor.

Here comes the Knight Bus, reaching with a bang, when a young boy calls out. Harry jumps inside and pretends to be Neville Longbottom. He asks the driver to drop him at Diagon Alley. The Minister of Magic greets him, and Harry is not expelled.

In Diagon Alley, Harry meets Hermione and Ron. After a few days at Diagon Alley, Harry overhears Mr and Mrs Weasley talking in a room and he cannot help overhearing…

Harry, Hermione, and the Weasleys get into the Ministry cars and head down to King Cross Station, Platform 9 ¾ . Mr Weasley warns Harry not to go searching for Sirius Black, the escaped convict from Azkaban.

In the train, Harry is attacked by the dementors, but Professor Lupin, the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, repels them away.

Harry and the rest of the class soon find Lupin’s class to be superb. Tackling with a Boggart, Redcaps, Hinkypunks…

All of a sudden, Sirius Black is said to have entered the school and the whole school panics. Black, making his second entrance in the school terrifies Ron, who sees him over his bed with a knife.

To make matters worse, Buckbeak, the hippogriff is to be executed by the Ministry and when Harry receives a mysterious package containing a Firebolt, the fastest broom in the world…

My ratings:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I simply loved it. I think it is at this time that it becomes sort of mysterious and more grown-up and less ‘friendly’
