‘There is a plot, Harry Potter. A plan to make the most terrible things happen at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.
Harry Potter’s summer included the worst birthday ever, grim warnings from a house-elf named Dobby, and rescue of the Dursleys by his friend Ron Weasley in a magical flying car! Back at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his sophomore year, Harry hears strange whispers through empty hallways, and then the attacks begin. The students are like stone … Dobby’s sinister predictions seem to come true.
It’s hard to fall in love with a serious and attractive young hero like Harry Potter and then watch helplessly as he enters terrible danger! And in J.K. Rowling Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is in dire danger. As if it wasn’t bad enough that after a long summer with the horrible Dursleys he is frustrated in his attempts to board the train at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to begin his sophomore year. But when your only transportation option is a magical flying car, it’s just your luck hitting a valuable (but clearly annoying) Wilom Willow. Still, this all seems like a day in the park compared to what’s going on inside the haunted halls of Hogwarts.
Chilling and malevolent voices whisper from the walls only to Harry, and it seems certain that his classmate Draco Malfoy will try to catch him. Soon not only is Harry concerned with survival, as terrible things begin to happen at Hogwarts. The eerily bright and up-to-the-wall words proclaim: “The Chamber of Secrets has opened. Enemies of the Heir, Beware.” But what exactly does it mean? Harry, Hermione, and Ron do everything magically possible, including risking their own lives, to solve this seemingly deadly 50-year-old mystery. This delightfully suspenseful novel is as gripping, imaginative, and creepy as the first; Students’ family concerns (fierce rivalry, blush-inducing infatuation, pedantic teachers) seamlessly intertwine with the weird, horrible, fantastic, or just plain fun. Once again, Rowling writes with a combination of wit, fantasy, and a macabre twist that will leave young and old readers desperate for the next installment. (9 years and up) – Karin Snelson
“When most people listen to ‘large print books’, they immediately think of senior citizens. But large print editions of popular children’s books, from the powerful Harry Potter series to timeless classics like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, are now making their way to the shelves of the Children’s Department at the Canton Library … Although the large print editions are aimed at the visually impaired or dyslexic child, they can also be used by standard vision readers. Canton] decided not to create a special section in the Children’s Department (as it exists in the Adult Department) by opting instead to intermix large print books on the shelves with regular print versions of the same titles. ”
