When I received my Hogwarts Letter that amazing day, I didn’t know what it would mean. At first I thought it was just a prank, ya know? My brothers sometimes played pranks on me, or blamed me when weird things happened around the house. How was I supposed to know that the dishes couldn't wash themselves? Anyway, my parents were going to go shopping in London anyway and they figured they would humor me. Boy, the look on their face when we stopped by the Barren Bulldog pub and the sign said “The Leaky Cauldron” instead! The innkeeper was an odd but friendly man, and there were some people to help show us around. The coolest part of Diagon Alley was picking up all the different textbooks, I just love reading and learning! There's always something new to discover between two pages. I might finish with “One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi” before school even starts.
