When the Quidditch World Cup is disrupted by Voldemort's rampaging supporters and the terrifying Dark Mark is resurrected, it is obvious to Harry that, far from failing, Voldemort is getting stronger. The ultimate symbol to the magic world of the evil Lord's return would be if the one and only survivor of his death curse, Harry Potter, could finally be beaten.
So when Harry is entered for the Triwizard Tournament - a competition between three wizarding schools to find the ultimate magician - he knows that rather than win it, he just has to get through the trials alive.
About The Author
Legend has it that J.K. Rowling was a struggling single mother when she wrote the beginning of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, on scraps of paper at a local cafe. But her efforts soon paid off, as she received an unprecedented award from the Scottish Arts Council enabling her to finish the book. Since then, the debut novel has become an international phenomenon, garnering rave reviews and major awards, including the British Book Awards Chidren's Book of the Year and the Smarties Prize.
'Every bit as good as Potters 1 through to 3' Stephen King 'There isn't a dull page ... The plot fits together like a wondrous jigsaw' Sunday Express 'The story is compelling: the humour satisfyingly anarchic, the moral stance reassuringly strong ... her best book yet' Sunday Telegraph 'The dazzling plot and pace are more impressive than ever ... there's simply too much to praise. On yer broomstick! Go get! Go read!' Irish Times
