later know is Aunt and Uncle of Harry Potter. They make him sleep in a cupboard under the
stairs and told him that his parents died in a car accident. Fortunately, a giant named Hagrid
picked him up to the wizarding world. “You are a wizard, Harry!” He said. Hagrid told him the
truth about the death of his parents. His parents were a wizard and they were murdered by a cruel
wizard named Voldemort and the attack on Harry’s parents left a signature lightning bolt scar on
his forehead.

Weasley, and Hermoine Granger. He makes enemies, too. Draco Malfoy is a little boy from a
powerful wizard family. Also, Harry has a lot of trouble with his teacher, Professor Snape, who
seems to dislike Harry.

When Harry learns the Sorcerer's Stone hidden in school and Voldemort wants it to gain
immortality and power, he tries to find a way to protect it. This leads to a dispute where Ron
plays a deadly chess game, and Hermoine works through a deadly logic game while facing a wall
of fire. After his friends master their challenges, Harry must face Voldemort again. He defeats
Voldemort by touching Voldemort’s face and hand. Later, Harry finds out that his mother spelled
an ancient charm to protect him before her death.
