Harry Potter!

My name is Kendal. I’m 45 years old. And I love Harry Potter!

I have decided to re-read the Harry Potter series for the umpteenth time. Instead of writing reviews, I going to write about my favorite of each book. I will write about the what and the why it’s my favorite scene.

My kids are finally old enough to read Harry Potter; however, they feel they need to rebel against their mother and said, NOPE! I even bribed them $50 to read Sorcerer’s Stone. Still… NOPE. Recently, Amazon had a sale where I got the entire paperback set for just $25. My youngest daughter uses the set as room decoration. At least that’s a step. Right?!

My next thought was… how about I re-read the entire series where they can see me react to every and LOVE every word of Harry Potter. I hope that I can tempt them to take the dive into the most amazing world of Harry Potter!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Synopsis (like we don’t already know): Orphan Harry Potter is miserable in an under-stairs closet. Dursleys – his witch mother’s sister, husband, Dudley – held no birthday party for Harry in 11 years. Owls fly notices to attend Hogwarts School. Wizard Harry flies on broom, hides under Cloak of Invisibility, sneaks past 3-headed dog with friends Hermione and Ron. A great destiny awaits if Harry can survive.

My Favorite Scene:

My favorite party is NOT the Mirror of Erised. Actually, it is when Hagrid gives Harry is first birthday present ever…Hedwig. I can just envision the face of pure joy. For your 11th birthday (and first every birthday present), you receive a beautiful snow white owl. So completely AWESOME! But Hedwig becomes so much more.

Hedwig is Harry’s constant connection to the magical world. She is so loyal. She, also, represents Harry’s freedom from the Dursleys. She is a magnificent creature and she helped Harry through so many times of complete loneliness and abandonment.

For Hagrid to give him such a precious gift, is a complete turning point in Harry’s life. It represents the beginning of his life as a wizard and one of his truest and most loyal of companions.

I love Hedwig and to me she was his anchor in the wizarding world.
