Title: Wizard's Hall
Author: Jane Yolen
Summary: The last new student for the term is the most important -- Number 113.
The Take-Away: Henry is recognized by his teachers as the most important student to pass through their doors, but none of them know why. Only that he is, even though he doesn't show any magical inclination unless some provides a guiding hand.
Even the most basic of magical elements -- singing -- proves impossible for him. But he promises to try and do his best, which really, is all that is needed.
Recommendation: A short title that would be a great introduction for any child considering fantasy or wants a taste of what Harry Potter is all about.
