The Vanishing Glass
Nearly ten years had passed since the Dursleys had woken up to
find their nephew on the front step, but Privet Drive had hardly
changed at all. The sun rose on the same tidy front gardens and lit
up the brass number four on the Dursleys’ front door; it crept into
their living-room, which was almost exactly the same as it had
been on the night when Mr Dursley had seen that fateful news
report about the owls.

Only the photographs on the mantelpiece
really showed how much time had passed. Ten years ago, there
had been lots of pictures of what looked like a large pink beach
ball wearing different-coloured bobble hats – but Dudley Dursley
was no longer a baby, and now the photographs showed a large,
blond boy riding his first bicycle, on a roundabout at the fair,
playing a computer game with his father, being hugged and kissed
by his mother. The room held no sign at all that another boy lived
in the house, too. (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone PDF)
Yet Harry Potter was still there, asleep at the moment, but not
for long. His Aunt Petunia was awake and it was her shrill voice
which made the first noise of the day.
‘Up! Get up! Now!’
Harry woke with a start. His aunt rapped on the door again.
‘Up!’ she screeched. Harry heard her walking towards the
kitchen and then the sound of the frying pan being put on the
cooker.(Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone PDF)
He rolled on to his back and tried to remember the dream
he had been having. It had been a good one. There had been a
flying motorbike in it. He had a funny feeling he’d had the same
dream before.(Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone PDF)
His aunt was back outside the door.
‘Are you up yet?’ she demanded.
‘Nearly,’ said Harry.
‘Well, get a move on, I want you to look after the bacon. And

don’t you dare let it burn, I want everything perfect on Duddy’s
‘What did you say?’ his aunt snapped through the door.
‘Nothing, nothing …’(Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone PDF)
Dudley’s birthday – how could he have forgotten? Harry got
slowly out of bed and started looking for socks. He found a pair
under his bed and, after pulling a spider off one of them, put them
on. Harry was used to spiders, because the cupboard under the
stairs was full of them, and that was where he slept.
When he was dressed he went down the hall into the kitchen.
The table was almost hidden beneath all Dudley’s birthday pres-
ents. It looked as though Dudley had got the new computer he
wanted, not to mention the second television and the racing bike.
Exactly why Dudley wanted a racing bike was a mystery to Harry,
as Dudley was very fat and hated exercise – unless of course it
involved punching somebody. Dudley’s favourite punch-bag was
Harry, but he couldn’t often catch him. Harry didn’t look it, but he
was very fast.
Perhaps it had something to do with living in a dark cupboard,
but Harry had always been small and skinny for his age. He
looked even smaller and skinnier than he really was because all he
had to wear were old clothes of Dudley’s and Dudley was about
four times bigger than he was. Harry had a thin face, knobbly
knees, black hair and bright-green eyes. He wore round glasses
held together with a lot of Sellotape because of all the times
Dudley had punched him on the nose. The only thing Harry liked
about his own appearance was a very thin scar on his forehead
which was shaped like a bolt of lightning. He had had it as long as
he could remember and the first question he could ever remember
asking his Aunt Petunia was how he had got it.
