Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

"For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black.  Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said the be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.
Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed:  Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well.  And the Azkaban guards hear Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts...he's at Hogwarts."
Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends.  Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst." (taken from the inside front cover of the book)

Last night I finished reading 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban', the third book in the series, written by J.K. Rowling.  Nick and Sam enjoyed listening to the story and decided that the book is much better than the movie.  I agree!  This book seemed to be more descriptive than the other two that we have read. 

(Disclaimer:  We checked this book out from the library and I was not asked by the author or anyone else to give my opinion of this book)

Tonight, I started reading the 4th book in the series, 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'.  From what I understand, this book starts turning dark in the series and the kids and I have decided that we will NOT be watching the remaining movies until they are much older.  We will see how it goes, chapter to chapter, and will decide whether we want to continue with the story or not. 

So glad our library has these books available!
