This book is my favourite Harry Potter book of all. It reflects on the other books, but still adds more. Harry's son Albus starts at Hogwarts with his cousin Rose. Albus is sorted into Slytherin, while Rose is in Gryffindor! Albus and his friend Scorpius jump off the Hogwarts Express to visit Voldemort's daughter, though they don't know it!
I rate it 10/10 and recommend it for ages 8 and over.

I rate it 10 out of 10. Cool as!
