A second year at Hogwarts and someone is still out to get Harry Potter. We discover yet more about the magical world Harry now inhabits and there is plenty of humour along the way.
You normally associate growing pains with getting a bit older and there are some particularly venomous ones in store for Harry here. He has plenty of support from his friends and we see their friendship deepening.
There are yet more wonderful ideas here and the story picks up nicely from the first book.
