"'Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you anywhere you want to go.'"
When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....


What the Critics Say

"To call Dale a 'reader' of books is like saying Monet was a Sunday painter." (Los Angeles Times)

The Threat From Within

What did you love best about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3?

The increasing suspense as it becomes clear that there is an intruder in the castle who will stop at nothing in their quest to murder Harry....as his parents before him were brutally murdered.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3?

The discovery of the true identity of the traitor, and the way in which he was able to infiltrate the castle. I also roared with laughter at Lee Jordan's commentary during the Quidditch Final match, loved the revelation of the way in which Hermione was able to complete the heaviest courseload in Third Year history, and was chilled by Professor Trelawney's eerie trance-state prediction regarding Harry's ultimate fate.

What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jim Dale BECOMES these characters; they come to life thanks to his expert reading, the entertainment value of which exceeds that of the somewhat disjointed and frantically paced film version.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No tears yet....those are coming in Books 5-7, I think...but LOTS of laughs, and more than a few chills and goosebumps moments!

Any additional comments?

Jim Dale at his best

I was so excited to hear that Audible got the rights to Harry Potter. My introduction to audio books began with Harry Potter. Jim Dale's voice and delivery brought to life characters that J. K. Rowling created on paper. Very few books have given me driveway moments, minutes spent listening to the end of a chapter, long after arriving home.
Thank you again to all for providing me an escape from the real world of muggles.
