Overall, a stunning copy of the third book in the Harry Potter series. Errington A7(b). A pivotal novel in the series, The Prisoner of Azkaban was published before the series reached the level of popularity and cult following that it has today, but still managed to reach critical acclaim. In his third year at Hogwarts, Harry Potter and his friends search for the villainous outlaw Sirius Black after his escape from the wizard prison Azkaban. Unlike the first two books in the series, The Prisoner of Azkaban does not end with a cut-and-dry triumph over evil, but rather begins to pose the question of how media portals and popular perception affect whether someone is considered good or bad- a notion that will reoccur and becoming increasingly central to the story line as the series progresses. . First American Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included. Illus. by Mary GrandPré.

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).
