Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone [electronic resource (EPUB eBook)] / J.K. Rowling. Headquarters (AVRL) - eBooks (EPUB) - Children's Fiction.
He lives with the miserable Dursleys and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry's room is a tiny closet beneath the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in ten years.
Then a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger. A letter with an invitation to an incredible place called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Vernon is the director of a drill company called Grunnings , while Petunia does housework and looks after Dudley, yet she always spends so much time craning over garden fence to spy on the neighbours.
Despite all this, the Dursley family are the least people anyone expects to be involved in anything funny or disturbing, for they don't hold with such nonsense in their daily lives. The story begins on a Tuesday 1 November , , where many absurd things happen.
When all three Dursleys are gossiping happily at breakfast trying to wrestle Dudley in his high chair, none of them even notice a large tawny owl flutter pass their window. It eventually comes to Vernon's attention when he is heading to work shortly afterwards, and sees a silver tabby cat reading a map and later a street sign.
He attempts to convince himself that these are merely coincidences. Next, he sees people in cloaks talking in hushed voices, and while he is sitting in his office, a flock of owls fly past his window. On his break, Vernon goes to a bakery to get a bun and sees another group of extravagantly-cloaked figures.
About the Author
Even though they are speaking in hushed voices, he eavesdrops on some of their conversation, which includes a mention of "the Potters and their son Harry.
He and Petunia will be embarrassed if people find out that they are related to them, as the Potter family are very strange, in their opinion. When he leaves his workplace at the end of the day, he bumps into a very small, cloaked man , who tells him that someone named " You-Know-Who " has been defeated, and that even Muggles like Vernon should be celebrating.
Vernon doesn't know what a Muggle is, but is offended that the man called him one. That night, when Vernon arrives at home, he turns on the news and becomes suspicious when the newsman states that owls have been seen everywhere earlier in the day, and that fireworks have been spotted in Kent.
Vernon asks Petunia if she and her sister have been in touch, but she becomes angry and denies it as she does not like to talk about her. When the Dursleys go to bed, a long bearded old man in a purple cloak appears out of nowhere outside of their home. The man, Albus Dumbledore , syphons all of the light from the street lamps with his Deluminator , then meets with the cat that Vernon had seen earlier that morning, who transforms into a whisky old woman named Minerva McGonagall.
A few moments later, a motorbike with a gigantic man, Rubeus Hagrid , riding it lands right in front of them, carrying baby Harry. Hagrid himself leaves to bring the motorbike back to its actual owner , but not before giving Harry a kiss goodbye on the scarred forehead which burns his lips.

McGonagall reverts back into the cat and slinks around the corner at the other end of the street, but Dumbledore stays to unsyphon the light from the street lamps and bid Harry farewell before vanishing without a trace.
