Chapter 1

the letter

Calvin sat at his desk. a look of total boredom on his face. on his desk a paper with math problems.

All at once he noticed a pecking sound. There at his window, stood a barn owl. a letter tied to his leg.

Calvin opened the window.

the owl flew in, and lifted her leg.

Calvin untied the letter, and the barn owl flew off. Calvin opened up the letter and read it.

his eyes widened.

"HOBBES!" he yelled. Hobbes came into the room.

Calvin shoved the letter in his face. Hobbes read it.

Deputy Headmistress

There was a long moment of silence.

"what?" asked Hobbes.

Calvin stared at him in disbelief. "haven't you ever read 'Harry Potter'?"

There was another moment of silence.

"No." Hobbes finally replied.

Calvin laughed and ran for his bookshelf. he pulled off six books. each book bigger than the last. he put them on the desk next to Hobbes. Hobbes read their titles.

Harry Potter and the sorcerous stone

Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Hobbes flipped through each book, pausing only to look at the few pictures at the beginning of each chapter.

then he stared at Calvin again, As if waiting for more.

Calvin stared back. the silence was almost unbearable.

"well?" asked Calvin. "well what?'' replied Hobbes. Calvin stared at Hobbes in disbelief.

"Hobbes'' he said. ''we have four weeks till terms start. read the books.'' Hobbes grabbed book

1 and started reading. Calvin finished his math quiz
