Alright, on to the third book, my all-time favourite! I feel like this is where the series really kicks off. This book is jammed packed with information and new characters. Let’s jump right in, shall we?
First off, we have the blowing up of Aunt Marge incident, which Harry is sure will get him expelled. Therefore, he is brave enough to leave the Dursley’s, without thinking of what might happen to him. It is at this point that Harry is picked-up by the Night Bus, a three-decker with beds that travels in a rather unsafe manner. This little escapade of his introduced us to a new dimension of the Wizarding World. It reminds us that it is ever present even in the most seemingly boring of neighbourhoods. This is a good point to remember as the author shows us time and time again that the Wizarding world was never out of reach to Harry. For example Ms. Figg has been a part of his life for a long time now. Apart from not being reprimanded by the Minister of Magic, Harry’s summer is one of the best he’s ever had. Living at the Leaky Cauldron and doing as he pleases in Diagon Alley. What more could a wizard ask for? Harry never suspected he was in any danger.
