HARRY POTTER 20TH ANNIVERSARY HOUSE EDITIONS REVIEWED - PRISONER OF AZKABAN
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
This is the 3 rd book in the Harry Potter series and J. Rowling still has not failed to give children their fantasy about the coexistence of another world. Like the first 2 books, this one has something for everyone and particularly novel has the complete elements of monsters, adventure, magic, miracles, and even sports. Although, it is a resemblance of a story about detectives. Those who lead the plot in the book are all brilliant, and the readers are in for a surprise when they finally reveal who they really are.
Rowling and the third in the Harry Potter series. The book sold 68, copies in just three days after its release in the United Kingdom and since has sold over three million in the country. Video games loosely based on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban were also released for several platforms, and most obtained favourable reviews. Harry is back at the Dursleys' for the summer holidays, where he sees on Muggle television that a convict named Sirius Black has escaped, though with no mention of what facility he has broken out of. Harry involuntarily inflates Aunt Marge when she comes to visit after she insults Harry and his parents. This leads to his running away and being picked up by the Knight Bus. He travels to the Leaky Cauldron where he meets Cornelius Fudge , the Minister for Magic , who asks Harry to stay in Diagon Alley for the remaining three weeks before the start of the school year at Hogwarts.

They were watching a brand-new television, a welcome- home-for- the-summer present for Dudley, who had been complaining loudly about the long walk between the fridge and the television in the living room. Dudley had spent most of the summer in the kitchen, his piggy little eyes fixed on the screen and his five chins wobbling as he ate continually. Harry sat down between Dudley and Uncle Vernon, a large, beefy man with very little neck and a lot of mustache.

Harry Potter was not normal. For a start, he hated the summer holidays. An orphan, he was forced to stay with horrible Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia and their fat son Dudley. They hated Harry for being a wizard. They were Muggles, non-magic people, and did not let Harry mention anything to do with his beloved Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was forbidden by the Ministry of Magic to cast spells outside school, but he couldn't resist. Aunt Marge inflated like a giant salami.
