Summary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
On his way to work one day, Mr. Dursley, a wealthy Englishman, notices weird things. Outside the Dursley residence that night, Albus Dumbledore, the head of Hogwarts, meets Professor McGonagall, who also teaches at Hogwarts, and a giant named Hagrid. Dumbledore informs McGonagall that a Mr. and Mrs. Potter were murdered and that Voldemort attempted but failed to murder their baby son, Harry. Dumbledore places an explanation note in a basket in front of the Dursley house for Harry. On his way to work one day, Mr. Dursley, a wealthy Englishman, witnesses weird things.
Dudley, the Dursleys’ son, dominates the Dursley household ten years later, tormenting and bullying Harry. Dudley is pampered, while Harry is confined to a cupboard beneath the stairs. On Dudley’s birthday at the zoo, the glass in front of a boa constrictor display vanishes, terrifying everyone. This incident leads to Harry’s punishment.
Harry begins to get mysterious letters. Mr. Dursley is concerned about them, and he attempts to keep them from Harry, but the letters continue to arrive through every crack in the house. Finally, on the eve of Harry’s eleventh birthday, he and his family flee to an isolated island hut. They hear a loud bang on the door at midnight, and Hagrid enters. Hagrid presents Harry with a letter of acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry discovers that the Dursleys have been denying Harry’s witchcraft for years.
Hagrid brings Harry to London the next day to shop for school supplies. They first head to Gringotts, the wizard bank, where Harry discovers that his parents have left him a large sum of money. They shop in Diagon Alley, the wizards’ commercial district, where Harry is fitted for his school attire. Harry purchases books, potion ingredients, and, finally, a magic wand to match the terrible Voldemort’s.
A month later, Harry arrives at the train station and boards track nine and three quarters towards Hogwarts. Harry makes friends with other first-year students on the train, including Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, a Muggle girl who was chosen to attend Hogwarts. The first-years at school take turns wearing the “Sorting Hat” to determine which residential home they will live in. Despite Harry’s fears of being assigned to the nasty Slytherin house, he, Ron, and Hermione are placed in the noble Gryffindor house.
As the new school year begins, Harry learns that his Potions professor, Snape, dislikes him. Snape has no cause to loathe Harry, according to Hagrid. The students are instructed to remain grounded during their first broomstick flying session while the teacher transports an injured boy called Neville to the hospital. Slytherin bully Draco Malfoy steals Neville’s cherished toy and flies it to the top of a tree. Harry chases him down. Malfoy launches the ball into the air, and Harry sprints down to make a magnificent catch. Professor McGonagall is there during the incident. Instead of penalising Harry, she suggests that he join Gryffindor and play Quidditch, a popular sport that resembles soccer on broomsticks.
A troll is discovered in the building on Halloween. The students are all sent back to their rooms, but Harry and Ron sneak away to visit Hermione, who is alone and unaware of the troll. They unwittingly lock the troll and Hermione in the girls’ restroom. They defeat the troll as a team. To keep Harry and Ron from being punished, Hermione tells a lie. Harry’s broom jerks out of control during his first Quidditch match. Snape is staring at Harry and whispering a curse, which Hermione notices. She comes to the conclusion that he is jinxing Harry’s broom and sets Snape’s garments on fire. Harry reclaims possession of the broom and wins the Quidditch match with a magnificent move.
Hagrid wins a dragon egg in a poker game a few weeks later. Because owning dragons is forbidden, Harry, Ron, and Hermione call Ron’s older brother, who is a dragon expert. They make plans to kill the dragon, but they are discovered. Gryffindor loses 150 points when Harry, Ron, and Hermione are severely punished. Furthermore, part of their punishment is accompanying Hagrid into the magical forest to discover who has been murdering unicorns recently. Harry comes into a cloaked man drinking unicorn blood in the woods. The man attacks Harry, but he is saved by a sympathetic centaur, who informs him that his adversary was Voldemort.
Harry makes the decision to locate the stone before Voldemort does. That night, he, Ron, and Hermione slip away to the prohibited third-floor corridor. As they approach closer to the stone, they get past the guard dog and execute a series of spectacular feats. Harry eventually comes face to face with Quirrell, who informs him that he must die. Quirrell places Harry in front of the Mirror of Erised and forces him to say what he sees, knowing that he wants to find the stone. Harry sees himself with the stone in his pocket and feels it in his pocket at the same time. However, he informs Quirrell that he notices something else.
Harry is in the hospital with Dumbledore when he regains consciousness. Dumbledore says that he saved Harry just in time from Quirrell. He goes on to say that he and Flamel have made the decision to destroy the stone. Harry attends the end-of-year banquet, where Slytherin is celebrating its seventh consecutive house championship cup victory. Dumbledore rises and awards many last-minute points to Gryffindor for Harry’s and his friends’ achievements, ensuring Gryffindor’s victory in the house cup. Harry returns to London for the summer to spend time with the Dursley family.
