Harry Potter is a young boy who attends a school of magic with his best friends, Ron and Hermione.

The battle between Harry and his nemesis, an evil wizard named Lord Voldemort, holds center stage throughout the series.
In the first book Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone, Harry, an eleven-year-old with new-found magical powers attends the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There he makes a few good friends and a few irksome enemies, and comes face to face with Lord Voldemort.
In the second book, Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, the mysterious Chamber of Secrets has been opened a second time, spelling serious trouble. Harry and his friends attempt to save the school from possible murders as heralded by the vicious attacks on several students.
