In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the summer after
Harryâ€™s first year at Hogwarts has been his worst summer
everâ€¦ the Dursleys more distant and horrible than ever
before. But just as heâ€™s packing his bags to return to
school, a creature named Dobby the house-elf announces that
if Harry goes back to Hogwarts, disaster will
And it turns out, Dobby is right. Harry and
Ron miss the Hogwarts Express, so they fly to school in a
blue Ford Anglia, crash landing in the notorious Whomping
Willow. Soon other worries accumulate: the outrageously
stuck-up new professor Gilderoy Lockhart; a ghost named
Moaning Myrtle, who haunts the girls' bathroom; the strange
behavior of Ron's little sister, Ginny Weasley; rumors about
the "Chamber of Secrets," a cavern buried deep below
Hogwarts; and a magical diary owned by Tom Riddle, a
Hogwarts student of long ago.
Harry is also shocked
to discover that he can speak Parseltongue, the language of
snakes - a rare ability that Lord Voldemort also possessed -
and that anti-Muggle prejudice exists in the Wizarding
world, even affecting Harry's friend Hermione.
all of these seem like minor concerns when someone starts
turning Hogwarts students to stone: an evildoer said to be
the fearsome Heir of Salazar Slytherin, on of the founders
of the school. Could it be Draco Malfoy, Harry's most
poisonous rival? Could it be Hagrid whose mysterious past is
finally told? Or could it be the one person everyone at
Hogwarts most suspects: Harry Potter himself?
