Summary
There was a shower of shooting stars when Harry Potter was born - weathermen all over our world of Muggles were amazed. But in the other world, the Ministry of Magic wasn't surprised as all, for Harry Potter was to be one of its finest and most famous wizards. Brought by flying motorcycle to live with his horrible Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia and their truly terrible son Dudley, Harry lived unhappily until his 11th birthday. He is rescued by the magic, if somewhat disorganised messenger, Hagrid, and taken to Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn his craft
