The author deserves your applause for her exceptional talent for molding the characters in and around Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, consisting of teachers, students, partially transparent ghosts, subjects, and last but not least, the Hogwarts headmaster. The author has many imaginary elements such as the non-existent “Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross railway station in London, with “Muggles” (non-magical people), and the “sorting hat” that daintily sits on the stool and waits for each new Hogwatarian for the selection ceremony with his melodious song.

Harry’s experience in busy Diagon Alley, where people are rushing to buy new spellbooks, robes, wands and his owls, and the feeling of warmth when he first holds his phoenix feather wand makes the reader feel the same lurch in the stomach as Harry.

The wizarding game “Quidditch” rides a creative wave through those warm Hogwarts grounds. Those score boards in appropriate shades of red and green that usually have a lion or snake as their emblem, a loquacious comment (from a Hogwarts senior) with the description of players swarming through the air on their broomsticks has let the story win its brownie points in the list of the best sellers in the world.
