Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The summer holidays are dragging on and Harry Potter can't wait for the start of the school year. It is his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and there are spells to be learnt and (unluckily) Potions and Divination lessons to be attended. But Harry needs to be on his guard at all times - his worst enemy is preparing a terrible fate for him. With characteristic wit, fast-paced humour and marvellous emotional depth, J.K. Rowling has proved herself yet again to be a master storyteller.

Synopsis

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

When the Quidditch World Cup is disrupted by Voldemort's rampaging supporters and the terrifying Dark Mark appears against the night sky, it is obvious to Harry Potter that, far from weakening, Voldemort is getting stronger. Back at Hogwarts for the fourth year Harry is astonished to be chosen to represent the school in the Triwizard Tournament. The competition is dangerous, the tasks terrifying, and true courage is no guarantee of survival - especially with the Dark Lord's forces on the rise.

These new editions of the classic and internationally bestselling, multi-award-winning series feature instantly pick-up-able new jackets by Jonny Duddle, with huge child appeal, to bring Harry Potter to the next generation of readers. It's time to PASS THE MAGIC ON .

Reviews

'Hooray for Harry Potter... [Harry's] adventures are as funny as Roald Dahl's stories and as vivid as Narnia books - and adults seem to enjoy them as much as their children'

'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has finally been unleashed. And is it good? You bet it is. Harry's - and our - fourth year at Hogwarts is funny, full of delicious parodies of our own world, and wildly action-packed'

'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is inventive, open-minded, and carries the hallmark of Rowling's imagination and scholarship ... pure magic'

'There isn't a dull page ... the plot fits together like a wondrous jigsaw'
Sunday Express

About the Author

J.K. Rowling

J. K. (Jo) Rowling was born in Chipping Sodbury in the UK in 1965. She attended the University of Exeter in Devon where she studied French. Her parents hoped that by studying languages, she would enjoy a great career as a bilingual secretary. But as Jo recalls, 'I am one of the most disorganised people in the world and, as I later proved, the worst secretary ever.' She claims that she never paid much attention in meetings because she was too busy scribbling down ideas.

When she was 26, she went to Portugal to teach English, which she really enjoyed. Working afternoons and evenings, she had mornings free to write. When she returned to the UK, Jo had a suitcase full of stories about Harry Potter. In 1996, one year after finishing the book, Bloomsbury bought Jo's first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. A few months after 'Harry' was accepted for publication in Britain, an American publisher bought the rights for enough money to enable Jo to write full time.
