Harry Potter is living with his aunt, uncle, and cousin when he finds out he’s a wizard. He’s summoned to Hogwarts the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He learns about his birthright, makes new friends, and learns all about the wizarding world. It has been challenged several times for promoting witchcraft, magic, Satanism, and the Wiccan religion. It was banned in Queensland, Australia for being violent and dangerous (Marshall University Library, 2010).
