Great book! 🪄

The age really depends on the kid. Some kids can read it at 8 and be fine, but some need to wait until they’re twelve. I would say that 11 is a good age to be reading this book. First, let me say what is good and positive about this book and why your kids should read it: - Harry’s friends are good role models because they are loyal and true to each other and willing to fight for what is right. - There is an underlying message that love conquers hate. - It is just plain a great book. There is romance, adventure, some comedy, a compelling plot and characters that you can’t help but root for. Basically everything a person wants in a good book! However, there are some darker elements that not everyone will be ready for. - Many characters die, especially near the end. This can be hard to read. I would recommend looking up who dies beforehand if you are especially sensitive so that it doesn’t take you by surprise. - There is a lot of romance and kissing, which might be too inappropriate for some kids. There is also some cursing such as the b word. This book is emotional and sad at some parts, but also adventurous, exciting, and an excellently composed and compelling novel! I highly recommend it to any Potterheads out there who want to know what happens next to Harry! You will not be disappointed! 😊

Violent and mature, but very interesting

Awesome! It is kind of violent and mature and includes B-word once, but very interesting.

"Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to bed before any of you come up with another clever idea to get people killed-or worse, ruin the Harry Potter series!"

JK Rowling was the first person to be a billionaire by just writing a book series. That book series was The Harry Potter series! They are quite worth reading! The characters are so relatable, the story is very descriptive and unique, the art is downright magical and interests people of all ages. The characters in Harry Potter are so lovable and fun, yet still so relatable and believable. "I grew up with the characters in Harry Potter since I was also 11 when the first book came out. The relatable way it was written made me feel like Harry, Ron, and Hermione were some of my own friends going through the same struggles that I was as a middle schooler." -Ms. Prophet The story of Harry Potter is so unique, to spend just a half hour reading the first book will hook you!. For example, in The Chamber Of Secrets, JK Rowling writes “the little creature had large, bat-like ears and bulging green eyes the size of tennis balls. She is describing Dobby the House Elf, and just within a sentence the reader immediately can picture the brave elf. Children above age 9-10 will absolutely adore and devour these lovely editions of Harry Potter, for the great story of the young wizard is world renowned and loved! When I was in third grade, my mom purchased the illustrated versions of Chamber Of Secrets and Prisoner Of Azkaban for me. Wait on the edge of your seats, because there is always more Potter! The Potterverse will never end!

A great book, but a tough read for younger kids

I think there is no reason to keep this book away from your children. It can be a little dark and there is violence, but kids will only read the last book in the series if they have been able to handle the level of violence in the previous books. I think it is a little long and difficult for kids under 7 but if you have a little one who excels in reading I think it's fine.

Some bad language and alot of gruesome violence.

It has one use of bitc* , ALOT of uses of damn and one use of effing.alot of really upsetting deaths and one character gets splinched(when you are apparating/dissaparating and a bit of your body gets left behind).A few kissing scenes.a character gets pregnant.
