about this item
Eleven-year-old Harry Potter was a baby when his parents died and since that time he has been living with his horrible Uncle Vernon, dislikable Aunt Petunia, and truly disgusting cousin Dudley. Miserable and lonely, Harry is shocked when he receives a letter inviting him to attend the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Now living at this special school, which is kept a secret from all those not involved in the worlds of magic, Harry begins to learn the truth about the death of his parents and discovers his truly amazing family history. This book is the first entry in the phenomenally popular Harry Potter series of books. Enjoyed by both children and adults, these books literally changed the face of children's publishing when, as a result of their stunning popularity, the New York Times actually began compiling and publishing a list of best-selling children's books--for the first time in that newspaper's history.
In this fourth installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry finds himself being challenged in the Triwizard Tournament where he must compete with other students to demonstrate their amazing wizard abilities. That's fine with Harry because he'd love to win the championship, but the plot thickens when he realizes during the tournament that omens are telling him that the evil Dark Lord Voldemort is lurking nearby. And that's not all Harry has to worry about--he'd like to turn his dreams of Cho Chang, his lovely, lovely crush, into true love. Fourteen-year-old Harry Potter must keep his wits about him if he wishes to make his dreams come true--and also stay alive. This is a German-language edition.
