10 things we love about Prisoner of Azkaban

Ron and Hermione's friendship later suffers when Ron believes that Hermione's cat, Crookshanks , ate his rat, Scabbers. At Christmas Harry receives a mysterious present, a late-model Firebolt broom.

Fearing it might be cursed, Hermione reports the gift to Professor McGonagall , which leads to more bad feelings between her and Ron and Harry. Ron, Hermione, and Harry join the effort to save Hagrid 's hippogriff, Buckbeak , from being executed for attacking Draco Malfoy , after Draco provoked him. Their efforts are unsuccessful, but Scabbers reappears shortly after they hear Buckbeak being executed.

Ron chases Scabbers, only to be attacked by a big black dog, which Harry has seen several times before. Harry and Hermione follow, and there is a brief standoff when they find Ron with Sirius Black, who has transformed from the dog.

Sirius Black

Lupin enters, and they explain the situation to Harry and his friends: Lupin is a werewolf , which led to his friends James Potter , Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew becoming animagi.

Lupin explains that Scabbers is Pettigrew in his animal form; he has been hiding from Black, whom he had framed for betraying Harry's parents and murdering the twelve Muggles.


Snape arrives to apprehend Black but Harry, Ron, and Hermione knock him unconscious with the Expelliarmus charm.

Lupin and Black transform Pettigrew back into human form and prepare to kill him, but they are stopped by Harry, as he feels his father would not have wanted it. He convinces them to send Pettigrew to Azkaban instead.

As they move back toward Hogwarts, Lupin turns into a werewolf and becomes violent, having missed a dose of his Wolfsbane potion. Pettigrew escapes again, and Black prevents Lupin from attacking the others in werewolf form.

After trying to escape from the werewolf Harry and Black reach a lake where the Dementors approach Harry and Black. Harry Tries to use the Patronus charm but fails while Black was on the verge of getting the Dementors kiss when suddenly a stag of silver appears at the other end of the lake and over a Dementors are forced to run away.

Harry thinks it was his father who had cast that perfect Patronus Charm, but soon he faints. When they wake up in the hospital, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are told that Black has been sentenced to receive the Dementor's kiss, which removes the soul of the recipient. Dumbledore advises Hermione and Harry to use Hermione's time-turner , a device she has been using to double-up on classes; this permits them to go back in time and save Buckbeak, and then Harry goes to the other side of the lake to see his father casting the spell but as he sees the life being sucked out of Black and Harry Since its time travel there are two Harrys , he moves ahead and casts the perfect Patronus charm realising that it was him not his father who did it earlier.

Later Harry and Hermione ride on Buckbeak and reach the top tower where Sirius is held and help him escape. Harry and Hermione reach the Hospital wing and meet Dumbledore who has just left the room and tell him that they have completed the task.

See a Problem?

As the enter a confused Ron looks on as Harry and Hermione from the past disappear in front of him and the present ones enter from the door. Sadly, Snape lets slip that Lupin is a werewolf, leading to his resignation.

Harry visits Lupin before he leaves, and as they say goodbye, Lupin is certain that they will meet again. You will be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life.

That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts but it's a healthy feeling.

Why “Prisoner of Azkaban” Is the Worst Book in the Series

It's a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different. But this plot device proved problematic for Rowling later on this series.

In Hogwarts: One of the aspects Rowling most enjoyed about writing Prisoner of Azkaban was introducing Remus Lupin.

Harry had Hedwig the owl, Ron had his pet rat Scabbers, and in book three, Hermione got a pet of her own: Rowling is allergic to cats, and she admits on her website that she prefers dogs, but she does have fond memories of a cat that roamed the London neighborhood where she worked in the s. Prisoner of Azkaban was the last Harry Potter book with a staggered publication date: Beginning with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire , the rest of the books in the series were published in both markets on the same date.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban sold 68, copies in the UK within three days of its release, making it the fastest-selling British book of all time in The book has since gone on to sell more than 65 million copies worldwide and helped make Harry Potter the bestselling book series ever.A Year in the Life.

Harry tells him that he already knows because he heard Mr and Mrs Weasley talking about it earlier. So It just slightly annoyed me when Hermione being disrespectful toward Professor Trelawney Hermione snorted.

Tighter security is put in place: Compared to the previous, the third volume of the series is the one that is richer in twists and turns. The book sold 68, copies in just three days after its release in the United Kingdom and since has sold over three million in the country. She's smart, brave and such a devoted friend.

This article covers a subject that is part of the real world, and thus should not be taken as a part of the Harry Potter universe.
