Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)

J.K. Rowling (Mary GrandPré)
Scholastic Inc. • 2004

Harry Potter's third year at Hogwarts is full of new dangers. A convicted murderer, Sirius Black, has broken out of Azkaban prison, and it seems he's after Harry. Now Hogwarts is being patrolled by th...e dementors, the Azkaban guards who are hunting Sirius. But Harry can't imagine that Sirius or, for that matter, the evil Lord Voldemort could be more frightening than the dementors themselves, who have the terrible power to fill anyone they come across with aching loneliness and despair. Meanwhile, life continues as usual at Hogwarts. A top-of-the-line broom takes Harry's success at Quidditch, the sport of the Wizarding world, to new heights. A cute fourth-year student catches his eye. And he becomes close with the new Defense of the Dark Arts teacher, who was a childhood friend of his father. Yet despite the relative safety of life at Hogwarts and the best efforts of the dementors, the threat of Sirius Black grows ever closer. But if Harry has learned anything from his education in wizardry, it is that things are often not what they seem. Tragic revelations, heartwarming surprises, and high-stakes magical adventures await the boy wizard in this funny and poignant third installment of the beloved series.--scholastic.com

Určite si mnohí z vás pamätajú časy, keď vám rodičia čítali na dobrú noc rozprávky. Keď písmenká boli pre vás ešte zložité a hlas maminy a tata bol oveľa príjemnejší. Ani ste sa nenazdali a uprostred rozprávky ste zaspali... Neskôr čítanie na dobrú noc nahradili obrázkové knižky, ktoré ste si tak radi listovali a ilustrácie napodobňovali a pretvárali na papieri všemožnými spôsobmi. Boli[...]
