One of the greatest children's stories of all time, J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, translated into te reo Maori. Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'. Harry Potter had never even heard of Hogwarts when letters started arriving for Mr H. Potter, The Cupboard under the Stairs, 4 Privet Drive. In emerald-green ink on yellowish parchment, they were swiftly confiscated by Harry's grisly aunt and uncle the Dursleys. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid burst in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In the first volume of one of the greatest children's stories of all time, Ron and Hermione, Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall introduce Harry and the reader to Quidditch and You-know-who, to the promise of magic and the inheritance of the past. Now inspirationally translated into te reo Maori by Leon Blake, the story starts here.
