Sequel to: Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban.
Fourteen-year-old Harry Potter joins the Weasleys at the Quidditch World Cup, then enters his fourth year at Hogwarts Academy where he is mysteriously entered in an unusual contest that challenges his wizarding skills, friendships and character, amid signs that an old enemy is growing stronger.
** spoiler alert ** Again, from a "read to my kid" perspective:
I thought the majority of this book was actually much less frightening than the previous installment (which was filled with dementors throughout). There was certainly tension as Harry was unwittingly thrust into the Tri-Wizard Tournament and had to face a dragon, an underwater rescue of a friend, and a maze filled with tricks and traps. But those were "normal" kinds of tension. I think the majority wouldn't be that bad to read.
Until, of course, the end, when a friend and classmate is killed (what?!? a kid actually killed in a kid's book?), Voldemort reappears, and Harry is tied and cut against his will. Then there's an actual "duel to the death" and when Harry manages to escape, an apparent betrayal by a teacher he trusted.
There's a lot of deep stuff for a kid at the end of this book. I, of course, love it.
Harry Potter and the sorcerer stone could probably be one of the best books out of the whole series. It brings action to you and you get filled with excitement. After each chapter you keep on wondering what happens next and it makes you to red, "One more chapter." Harry Potter and the Sorcerer stone is a really wonderful book.
This book is one of the best in the series! full of action, suspense, mystery, and surprises! Harry tackles the Triwizard Tournament, an event that three schools take part of. Only thing is, he didn't enter. There's a traitor at Hogwarts, whom Albus Dumbledore has overlooked. And this traitor has a mission...

Fans, such as myself, of Harry Potter, will be interested to learn what author J.K. Rowling has said happened to the characters after the end of the last novel.
