The unwilling boy wizard is back in a new magical book, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" by J.K. Rowling (Scholastic, $17.95).

At the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry is in his second year. He and his pals face their biggest challenge yet: how to keep the other kids from turning to stone. Adults have flipped over this book, and most kids think it's pretty cool, too. If you like flying brooms, you'll love it.
