Review a synopsis of J.K. Rowlings novel Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone from the video workshop series In Search of the Novel. Harry Potter spends his first ten years sleeping under the stairs with the Dursleys in their smug suburban life, despised and neglected. Harry receives a visit from Hagrid, a giant, who brings the news that Harrys father was a wizard and his mother a witch. He goes off to boarding school at Hogwarts as a typical English child might, but his supplies include a message-carrying owl and a wand. There are new friends, new teachers, new sports, and a world of danger and enchantment.
