It's hard to fall in love with an earnest, appealing young hero like Harry Potter and then to watch helplessly as he steps into terrible danger! But when his only transportation option is actually a magical flying car, it is just his luck to crash into a valuable (but clearly vexed) Whomping Willow. As if it's not bad enough that immediately after a lengthy summer with the horrid Dursleys he is thwarted in his attempts to hop the train for the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to begin his second year. Still, all this seems like a day within the park compared to what happens that fall inside the haunted halls of Hogwarts. And in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the much anticipated sequel for the award-winning Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, he is in terrible danger indeed.
Chilling, malevolent voices whisper from the walls only to Harry, and it seems specific that his classmate Draco Malfoy is out to acquire him. Soon it's not just Harry who is worried about survival, as dreadful things begin to happen at Hogwarts. Enemies of the Heir, Beware. The mysteriously gleaming, foot-high words on the wall proclaim,"The Chamber of Secrets Has Been Opened. This deliciously suspenseful novel is every bit as gripping, imaginative, and creepy as the first; familiar student concerns--fierce rivalry, blush-inducing crushes, pedantic professors--seamlessly intertwine with the bizarre, horrific, fantastical, or just plain funny. As soon as again, Rowling writes getting a mixture of wit, whimsy, and a touch inside the macabre that will leave readers young and old desperate for the subsequent installment."But what exactly does it mean? Harry, Hermione, and Ron do everything that is wizardly possible--including risking their own lives--to solve this 50-year-old, seemingly deadly mystery. (Ages 9 and older) --Karin Snelson
