Ah, summer! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE turns 20 this week! That’s right, the book that made many of us lifetime readers and made children’s literature BIG news has been around for two whole decades. I can still remember the very first time I read the line “Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.” It’s amazing that so many Kidsreaders are still discovering these books for the first time all these years later.
