Review by Harriet
Year Group 5
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the 5th book in the Harry Potter series. In this book Harry is starting his 5th year at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry along with his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Last year the dark wizard Lord Voldemort returned.
Whilst Harry's headmaster Albus Dumbledore restarts his army against Lord Voldemort, Harry starts up a student army to train students in proper defense against the dark arts as their teacher Professor Umbridge won't allow them to practice defensive spells. My favorite part is when Harry is training his army. I think the main themes are loyalty and good verses evil. I chose to review this book because I really enjoyed reading it. Before I read this book I already knew most of the characters from reading the previous books.I think the differences between Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (the first book) and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix are that the problems are bigger, more dangerous and more grown-up and Harry is less of a child and more of an adult.
Harry: brave, kind and powerful
Ron: funny and loyal
Hermione: clever and hard working
I would recommend this book for 8+ who enjoy stories about magic and adventure and have read the previous books.
