Mason Talks About Harry Potter for Kids

Hi, this is Mason and I’m writing about the first four Harry Potter books.

The first one is called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.  It’s not that scary.  The book is about Ron, Harry, and Hermione trying to get this stone that makes them never die.  This is my second favorite Harry Potter book because it’s not as violent as the other books.  I liked it because Harry made a lot of friends.  Sometimes it was kind of interesting when they were talking about the wands, like when the wands choose you and you don’t choose the wand.

The second book is my favorite.  It’s called Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets.  It’s about Ron’s sister, Ginny Weasley, trying to get into the Chamber of Secrets.  The Chamber of Secrets is where Voldemort lives.  Voldemort is a bad guy.  Ginny wanted to go there because Voldemort told her to in his diary.  She didn’t know it was Voldemort’s diary.  This one was a LITTLE more scary, but the best part is that Harry made more friends, like Neville Longbottom.

The third book is a little scarier than the second book.  It is called Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  It’s about Harry’s godfather, who is not a murderer.  But the Ministry of Magic thinks he is because he was standing right next to Harry’s mother and father’s house when it blew up, so they put him in jail.  But he got out and went to the school to get the real murderer.  I didn’t like it because there are these things called dementors, and they suck up the good feelings.  It made me scared.  I liked this book because Harry Potter saved his godfather and it had a nice ending.

The fourth book is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.  I don’t want to write about the Voldemart part because then I’ll get more scared.  This book is my least favorite.  I didn’t want to read it anymore because it was too scary.  People that are like twelve or up could read it.  I read to page 326 maybe, I’m not sure, because it was about two weeks ago that I stopped reading.

I think kids who are seven and up could read number one, two, and three.   The fourth one should be twelve and up, unless you like scary things.

ImageI found out something cool that people should do if they like Harry Potter, at least books one – three.  They should do this game called Pottermore, there are different levels.  I’m at Diagon Alley where I get my wand, my books, and my robes.  You have to find things to help you get to the next level.  You have to do a lot of levels before you get to the level I’m on.  It’s free, and the address is http://www.pottermore.com.  You have to sign up with your parents’ email.

I also want to go to Whimsic Alley.  It’s in Los Angeles.  You can get your own wands and stuff.  You can have a birthday there too.  My friend Matthew went to Whimsic Alley, and I looked on the computer, it looked awesome.  Matthew is going to write a review for our blog, which you can look on our website to find out about it.

I hope you liked reading my blog.

  1. Interesting. I want to read the rest of the books (I only read number 1)! I also want to check out Pottermore.

    • Hi Erik! I am wondering if your mom limited the books you could read until you were older? If so, I think your mom made a wise choice. Camille also read books 1-3, and desperately begged to read 4, but now I know better. It was much too graphic and scary for kids, in my opinion. Since it’s been about a decade since I’ve read book four, I didn’t remember! This is why I asked Mason to write a review on the first four…so kids and parents know what to expect. Once you read the other books, I would be interested in you opinion. Thanks, Lisa (Mason and Camille’s mom)

      • Thanks! Earlier this year, my Mom had said that I could read the 2nd book this summer. My Mom says that she thought that the second book and others were too “dark” until now, and I can read the 2nd book.
