tells McGonagall that someone named Voldemort has killed a Mr. and Mrs.

son, Dudley, who torments and bullies Harry. Dudley is spoiled, while
Harry is forced to sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. At the zoo

Mysterious letters begin arriving for Harry. They worry Mr. Dursley,
who tries to keep them from Harry, but the letters keep arriving through
every crack in the house. Finally, he flees with his family to a secluded

hear a large bang on the door and Hagrid enters. Hagrid hands Harry
an admissions letter to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The next day, Hagrid takes Harry to London to shop for school supplies.
First they go to the wizard bank, Gringotts, where Harry learns that
his parents have left him a hefty supply of money. They shop on the
wizards’ commercial street known as Diagon Alley, where Harry is fitted
for his school uniform. Harry buys books, ingredients for potions, and,
finally, a magic wand—the companion wand to the evil Voldemort’s.

A month later, Harry goes to the train station and catches his train
to Hogwarts on track nine and three quarters. On the train, Harry befriends
other first-year students like Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, a Muggle
girl chosen to attend Hogwarts. At school, the first-years take turns
putting on the “Sorting Hat” to find out in which residential house
they will live. Harry fears being assigned to the sinister Slytherin
house, but he, Ron, and Hermione end up in the noble Gryffindor house.

As the school year gets underway, Harry discovers that his Potions
professor, Snape, does not like him. Hagrid reassures Harry that Snape
has no reason to dislike him. During their first flying lesson on broomsticks,
the students are told to stay grounded while the teacher takes an injured
boy named Neville to the hospital. Draco Malfoy, a Slytherin bully,
snatches Neville’s prized toy and flies off with it to the top of a
tree. Harry flies after him. Malfoy throws the ball in the air, and
Harry speeds downward, making a spectacular catch. Professor McGonagall
witnesses this incident. Instead of punishing Harry, she recommends
that he play Quidditch, a much-loved game that resembles soccer played
on broomsticks, for Gryffindor. Later that day, Malfoy challenges Harry
to a wizard’s duel at midnight. Malfoy doesn’t show up at the appointed
place, and Harry almost gets in trouble. While trying to hide, he accidentally
discovers a fierce three-headed dog guarding a trapdoor in the forbidden

On Halloween, a troll is found in the building. The students are all
escorted back to their dormitories, but Harry and Ron sneak off to find
Hermione, who is alone and unaware of the troll. Unwittingly, they lock
the troll in the girls’ bathroom along with Hermione. Together, they
defeat the troll. Hermione tells a lie to protect Harry and Ron from
being punished. During Harry’s first Quidditch match, his broom jerks
out of control. Hermione notices Snape staring at Harry and muttering
a curse. She concludes that he is jinxing Harry’s broom, and she sets
Snape’s clothes on fire. Harry regains control of the broom and makes
a spectacular play to win the Quidditch match.

For Christmas, Harry receives his father’s invisibility cloak, and he
explores the school, unseen, late at night. He discovers the Mirror
of Erised, which displays the deepest desire of whoever looks in it.
Harry looks in it and sees his parents alive. After Christmas, Harry,
Ron, and Hermione begin to unravel the mysterious connection between
a break-in at Gringotts and the three-headed guard dog. They learn that
the dog is guarding the Sorcerer’s Stone, which is capable of providing
eternal life and unlimited wealth to its owner and belongs to Nicolas
Flamel, Dumbledore’s old partner.

A few weeks later, Hagrid wins a dragon egg in a poker game. Because
it is illegal to own dragons, Harry, Ron, and Hermione contact Ron’s
older brother, who studies dragons. They arrange to get rid of the dragon
but get caught. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are severely punished, and
Gryffindor is docked 150 points. Furthermore, part of their punishment
is to go into the enchanted forest with Hagrid to find out who has been
killing unicorns recently. In the forest, Harry comes upon a hooded
man drinking unicorn blood. The man tries to attack Harry, but Harry
is rescued by a friendly centaur who tells him that his assailant was
Voldemort. Harry also learns that it is Voldemort who has been trying
to steal the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Harry decides that he must find the stone before Voldemort does. He,
Ron, and Hermione sneak off that night to the forbidden third-floor
corridor. They get past the guard dog and perform many impressive feats
as they get closer and closer to the stone. Harry ultimately finds himself
face to face with Quirrell, who announces that Harry must die. Knowing
that Harry desires to find the stone, Quirrell puts Harry in front of
the Mirror of Erised and makes him state what he sees. Harry sees himself
with the stone in his pocket, and at that same moment he actually feels
it in his pocket. But he tells Quirrell that he sees something else.
A voice tells Quirrell that the boy is lying and requests to speak to
Harry face to face. Quirrell removes his turban and reveals Voldemort’s
face on the back of his head. Voldemort, who is inhabiting Quirrell’s
body, instructs Quirrell to kill Harry, but Quirrell is burned by contact
with the boy. A struggle ensues and Harry passes out.

When Harry regains consciousness, he is in the hospital with Dumbledore.
Dumbledore explains that he saved Harry from Quirrell just in time.
He adds that he and Flamel have decided to destroy the stone. Harry
heads down to the end-of-year banquet, where Slytherin is celebrating
its seventh consecutive win of the house championship cup. Dumbledore
gets up and awards many last-minute points to Gryffindor for the feats
of Harry and his friends, winning the house cup for Gryffindor. Harry
returns to London to spend the summer with the Dursleys.
