Harry who has lived with his Unconcerned Aunt Petunia, Hateful Uncle Vernon, and his spoiled rotten cousin Dudley for ten years is always in trouble for things that are not his fault and things he couldn’t control being forced to sleep in a cupboard under the stairs always being bullied by his “family” until Harry gets the mail one day. Harry is surprised to receive a letter while getting the mail one day on Dudley’s birthday. Receiving the letter from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry but before Harry can open the letter, Uncle Vernon notices the letter and takes it and rips it up throwing the shreads into the fire because they don’t want Harry to know he is a Wizard nor do they want him to use magic ever, but the house is soon receiving more than plenty letters for Harry and surrounded by owls trying to give Harry his letter all the way up to Harry’s birthday. On Harry’s 11th birthday Uncle Vernon takes the family to a shabby lighthouse in the middle of nowhere hoping the letters would stop flooding in but as time drew closer to Harry’s birthday, a giant called Rubeus Hagrid appears in the lighthouse with another copy of the letter.
