Synopsis

“Harry Potter is a wizard. He is in his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It's always a relief after summer with the Dursleys, however, Harry doesn't realize that this year will be just as eventful as the last two! The atmosphere at Hogwarts is tense. There's an escaped mass murderer on the loose, even the Muggles have been warned. The sinister prison guards of Azkaban have been called in to guard the school and Harry, Ron and Hermione rapidly discover why all witches and wizards live in fear of being sent to Azkaban. Lessons, however, must go on and there are lots of new subjects in the third year - Care of Magical Creatures and Divination among others. Plus the delights of Hogsmeade, the only village in the UK entirely populated by the magical community” (from Bloomsbury’s website). Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban , written by world-renowned author JK Rowling, was first published as a hardcover on July 8th, 1999 by Bloomsbury Publishing. The third in the Harry Potter series, this novel follows Harry Potter and his friends on yet another thrilling adventure through the world of magic.
