My Favorite Series


By: Jake T., Grade 5



     My all time favorite series is Harry Potter. My dad read it to me when I was little and did every voice.  My favorite character was Dumbledore. He was incredibly powerful but showed restraint.  He was kind and mysterious too.  I cried at the end of the sixth book when Snape killed him.  My favorite quote from him is, "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if only one remembers to turn on the light."  Another favorite quote from Albus is, "It is our choices that show us what we truly are, far more than our abilities."



     Both of those quotes are full of meaning to me and made me who I am today.  I would recommend all the Harry Potter books to both young and old readers. I continue to read new screenplays and things, but currently my favorite book is The Order of the Phoenix
