The adventures of Harry Potter and his friends continue in the third book in this world-acclaimed series. When Voldemort killed Harry Potter's parents, he didn't do it alone - he had help from his network of dark wizards. For twelve years, the horrid prison Azkaban has held one of those wizards - an infamous man named Sirius Black. This man has now escaped - and is expected to be heading straight for Hogwarts and Harry Potter! Showing best matches Show all copies.
Harry has never heard of notorious mass-murderer Sirius Black when he runs away from home one summer night, with only his owl, Hedwig, and his school trunk. For the school is being guarded by fearsome Dementors, the guards of Azkaban prison, waiting to suck out the souls of the living with their terrifying kiss. Nothing is certain in a world where even time itself may not be what it seems. Baffling Boggarts, portentous tea-leaves, silver stags and a soaring journey on Hippogriff wings await you, if you dare to turn the page. Nothing is as it seems in this book. The Harry Potter series is well known to be an engaging and enjoyable read for children and adults alike, and this addition to the series is no exception.

He travels to the Leaky Cauldron where he meets Cornelius Fudge , the Minister for Magic , who asks Harry to stay in Diagon Alley for the remaining three weeks before the start of the school year at Hogwarts.
