The second book in the Harry Potter book series. The Dressers were so cruel and disgusting that that summer Harry Potter really longed to go back to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. But even before he has time to pack his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange and magical creature named Dobby, who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will occur. Harry Potter is a wizard. He is now in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he really has no idea that this year is going to be as full of surprises as the last year: he encounters new troublemakers and threats, such as a new teacher named Gilderoy Lockhart, who is definitely overly pleased with himself; a ghost in the name of Myrtle, the howler who inhabits the girls' bathroom; and unwanted attention from Ron Weasley's little sister, Jenny. But all of this pales in comparison to the real trouble, which begins when someone - or something - begins to turn the students of Hogwarts to stone. Darko Malfoy, his nemesis, may have , gained so much power? Is there a chance that the culprit is actually Hagrid, whose mysterious past has finally been revealed? Or is the culprit the person that all the students at Hogwarts suspect above all others...Harry Potter himself?
