Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakaban

Author: JK Rowling
My recommended age: 10 and up
Lexile Level: 880L
Fantasy Fiction
Guided Reading Level: W
There is an escaped wizard convict on the loose, and he's out to get Harry. Even Hogwarts isn't safe as Harry and his friends continue to develop their magic skills during their 3rd year of school. There are some terrific new characters in this book and the story is wonderful.

In my opinion this book was less intense than the 2nd. In the end Harry is confronted by the convict, and there are several tense moments where I alternated wondering if Harry would get hurt, and thinking he was an idiot for not getting help. The Prisoner of Azkaban is one of my favorites of the HP series, because it is different in that Voldemort is never actually in it. I found nothing offensive.
