Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling is the third book in the Harry Potter series.

Harry is about to begin his third year at Hogwarts, but for now he is still stuck with the Dursleys - his non-magical relatives. They do not want him to do anything related to magic - including his summer homework. When they lie to a visiting relative about Harry being in a school for criminal teens, he cannot take it anymore.

Harry runs away from the Dursleys. He catches a ride on the night bus and spends the rest of his summer in Diagon Alley. At the same time, all over the magical and muggle news is a story of a prison break. Sirius Black has escaped from prison and is so dangerous that the Ministry of Magic has placed guards around Hogwarts.

A re-reading of Rowling's series will point out clues along the way that finally lead to the outcome of the series - proving just how brilliantly the Harry Potter story was crafted. Read it again!
