Synopsis:It is the middle of the summer, but there is an unseasonable mist pressing against the windowpanes. Harry Potter is waiting nervously in his bedroom at the Dursley’s house in Privet Drive for a visit from Professor Dumbledore himself. One of the last times he saw the Headmaster was in a fierce one-to-one duel with Lord Voldemort, and Harry can’t quite believe that Professor Dumbledore will actually appear at the Dursley’s of all places. Why is the Professor coming to visit him now? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks’ time? Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts has already got off to an unusual start, as the worlds of Muggle and magic start to intertwine…
Genre:Young Adult/Fantasy
Butterfly, age 11: I like it because of the surprising events. It just catches it by surprise and I like that. It was really easy to read. It was exciting.

Mum: I love the beginning of this novel – hilarious!

This novel is packed with information about Voldemort – his past, his origins, his motives. Many of our most pressing questions are answered, only to be replaced with yet more questions. There is romance in store for some of our favourite characters and the rivalry between Harry and Snape escalates. This book is full of tension and I couldn’t put it down! Those who are unfamiliar with the story (are there any of you left?) should brace themselves for a huge shock at the end.

This is definitely one of the better Potter books!
