Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
The important scene I chose to pick is when Hagrid, Keeper if Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts. Evidence to provide my claim is on page 48, J.K. Rowling states that, " True, I haven't introduced myself. Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts." Hagrid was there to tell Harry Potter that he is a wizard. According to J.K. Rowling on page 50, she states that, " Ah, go boil yer heads, both of yeh," Said Hagrid. " Harry- yer a wizard." And this is all happening in a broken hut in a middle of the sea during a terrible thunderstorm at midnight, on Harry Potter's 11 Birthday. To support my claim, J.K. Rowling states on pages 43-45, she states that, " If it was Monday- and you could usually count on Dudley to know the days of the week, because of television- then tomorrow, Tuesday, was Harry's eleventh birthday..Spray from the high waves splattered the walls of the hut and a fierce wind rattled the filthy windows." It creates conflict between the Dursley's and Harry because both Mr. and Mrs. Dursley don't want Harry to go Hogwarts. It helps Harry find out the really truth about himself. Harry responds suprised because he had no idea that his parents were wizard and witch and finding out he was a wizard himself, really puzzled him. Mr. and Mrs. Dursley responded by being really surprise and angry that Hagrid told Harry he is a wizard and going to Hogwarts. This would be the rising action since this is the beginning of his experience going to Hogwarts. I expect Harry to have conflict at Hogwarts in some way or form.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers
Main characters in the book would be Harry Potter and the Dursley Family made of Dudley, Vernon, and Petunia. Harry Potter had a thin face. knobbly knees, black hair, and bright green eyes. He wore round glasses held together with a lot of Scotch tape. He is a majorly important character in the book and well the series because he is the character we follow throughout the book series. Evidence to provide evidence for Harry's characteristics are in page 20, J.K. Rowling states",Harry had a thin face, knobbly knees, black hair, and bright green eyes. He wore round glasses held together with a lot of Scotch tape.." Dursley, the son of Mr, and Mrs. Dursley, was a large blond boy who was spoiled and wanted things his ways and got whatever he wanted. Evidence for Dudley's characteristics are in page 18, J.K. Rowling states ", .. and now the photographs showed a large blond boy riding his first bicycle..." Mr. Dursley was the director of a firm called Grunnings, which made drills and is a big, beefy man with hardly any neck, although he did have a large mustache. Mrs. Dursley is a thin and blonde and had nearly twice the usual amount of neck which usually spied on neighbors. Evidence for both of the characteristics are on page one, J.K. Rowling states that ", Mr. Dursley was the director of firm called Grunnings which made drills. He was a big, beefy man which hardly any neck, although he did have very large mustache. Mrs. Dursley was thin and blonde and had nearly twice the usual as she spent so much of her time craning over garden fences, spying on the neighbors..." These three characters are all important because they grow up Harry since he was 1 to 11 where he was told the news of his secret life and moved to a new school of wizardry. So far in the book, 5 chapters in the book to be exact, all of the characters have stayed Static.
