Synopsis

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) finds the hero of Hogwarts back to his humble home with the Dursleys for summer break.  Between their efforts, and that of a strange and much-abused house-elf, Harry feels like he might never make it back to complete his wizard training! Even back at Hogwarts, danger abounds!  A mysterious "Chamber of Secrets" has been opened, and the young wizard and his friends must use everything they can to save each other from certain doom! The truth lies behind a magical diary, a ghost who lives inside a toilet, a pompous new teacher and ends with the Dark Wizard Voldemort. Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adolescent Literature (2008) , British Book Award (1999) , Smarties Prize (1999) , Prijs van de Jonge Jury (2002) , Booklist 1999 Editor's choice (1999)
