Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban / J.K. Rowling / 435 p.

The 3rd book in the Harry Potter series is wonderfully written as always.  The animosity between Snape and Potter is more apparent than ever.  Harry has a new foe to worry about - the prisoner of Azkaban, who might have gotten out in order to kill him.  Harry remains the intrepid hero and faces all his challenges bravely - finding friends where he thought to only find enemies and learning more about his own past and parents.  Hermione and Ron help as much as they can and are by Harry's side through the worst of his challenges.  Fans of the movies will begin noticing more pronounced differences between text and film in this book and the next.  This series is excellent for reluctant readers or those who need a little magic now and then.
