Book 12 - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

By J.K Rowling

Harry Potter is on his way to his third year at Hogwarts, his Aunt Marge has been left floating to the ceiling like a balloon and a dangerous murderer has just escaped from a high security prison and is on his way to find him. Add to this mixture a flying Half Horse-Half Eagle,a wild dog that foretells impending death and a collection of creepy prison guards that feed off negative thoughts and we have the third fun packed Harry Potter book.

I have read a Harry Potter book every year now that I have been doing my 52 book reading challenge and I absolutely loved this one! The first two books were fun to read but this one is so much better, the plot just seems much tighter and is cleverly constructed. The great thing about these books is that they are fun for all ages including this 42 year old bald bloke.

There are lots of twists and turns and hints and clues and the ending was just right. Anyone that is interested in writing children's books could learn alot from J.K Rowling, me included. I want to go back in time and become her!


I still haven't seen any of the films and I would rather read the books first.


  1. I still haven't read the books, but I have them on my Nook, just waiting for me to dig in! :) Great post!
