Harry Potter was born several years ago in the wizarding world to his loving parents. Unfortunately at the time there was a war being waged among the wizards. Harry’s parents were fighting for the good against the Lord Voldemort. This evil Lord Voldemort killed Harry’s parents when he was just a babe and attempted to get at Harry, but Harry was saved by his mother’s love and this caused Lord Voldemort to lose his powers and come close to death.

Professor Dumbledore placed Harry with his muggle or non-magic folk, Aunt and Uncle until he would be old enough to enter Hogwarts School of magic. The years passed and Harry came of age. J.K. Rowling’s series of books starts just a few days before Harry turns eleventh. She has planned out seven books and written six of them so far that follow Harry’s adventures in magic at the wizarding school and the background plot involving Lord Voldmort’s return to power and the second war between good and evil in the wizarding world. Another theme that would tie in would be to do a secret mission adventure theme. You could also include a magician and incorporate a magic theme in your party. The boys and girls would really enjoy this.

Harry Potter learns in the series that its very possible that he could have ended up a normal boy with a normal but magical life, but Lord Voldemort interpreted a prophecy to believe Harry was to be his downfall and thus attempted to get at Harry. This is really a coming of age series, following Harry as he grows up and learns to handle his powers, but it is also lots of fun, especially the early books when Harry is more of a kid.

This series of books follows the adventures of the teenage wizard known as Harry Potter as well as his closest friends. Ron and Hermione attend school with Harry at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft where Harry constantly comes under the scrutiny of the bullies of the school for being who and what he is.

However the deeper history of Harry Potters story revolves around the evil wizard who is known as Lord Voldemort. This evil wizard who killed Harry's parents in his quest to conquer all wizards has known Harry's full ire from the start. Since the first release of the very first novel titled Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, this series has been a hit with young and old alike. For the first time busy parents noticed their children not with their faces stuck into a computer screen, but into a Harry Potter book instead.

Honestly in this manner the Harry Potter series did create history. It took children who would have never preferred to read a book over playing video games or going out to play, but it did convert millions of them into true believers in the power of the imagination. Considering this is something that experts have been attempting for many years, the Harry Potter series reached out to those who had never previously been given the chance to let their imagination run wild.
