The Harry Potter series has hit the world by storm!! Children all around the world are reading the books and loving them. On the downside there have been complaints made against the series because of the witchcraft theme. The complainants have vocalized their fears of children rushing to join the occult and this has resulted in Harry Potter becoming banned in schools and public libraries.
As of date there are three novels in the Harry Potter series. Book four will be coming out this summer... as everyone anxiously awaits the continuing saga of Harry's school adventures at Hogwarts!
The books are first published in the UK. When the book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in the United States, the American publishers changed the title of the book to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone as well as some of the book's content. The American publisher's were afraid that the American public would not understand the British culture and terms used.
Here are the two book covers. The one on the right is the UK version and the one on the left is the American version.
