Plot

Harry Potter has lived for 11 years with the Evans-Verres - Petunia and her scientist husband Professor Michael, reasonably happy but unaware of magic. One day, he receives a letter addressed to Mr. H. Potter inviting him to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Sceptical, he nevertheless agrees to a visit from Deputy Headmistress Minerva McGonagall for a demonstration of magic. With magic now seemingly a proven reality, Harry now takes his place at Hogwarts, "armed with Enlightenment ideals and the experimental spirit."
