Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling J.K. Rowling Joanne K. Rowling is a British author. She is best known as the author of the Harry Potter series. The Harry Potter book series have won numerous awards and have sold over 400 million copies. J.K. Rowling is now richer then the Queen of England on just the Harry Potter books. She was also a billionaire until this year when she donated 5 million dollars to charity. Another Title: Harry Potter: The Boy Who Lived The reason I would choose this title is beacuse in the wizarding world, Harry is called, "The Boy Who Lived", then, "The Chosen One" in the later books. Category: Fantasy Adventure There are numerous adventures Harry has like finding out that he is a wizard In the book, it talks of Quidditch, spells, and wizards Recommendation: I would give Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone 5 stars out of 5 stars.
