Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré

This book would be awesome to use for a novel study in a sixth grade classroom. During this novel study, students could look for objects that have personification. Character studies could also be brought in with this story. Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone is magical and I would love to have my students explore the halls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
