How did Harry’s name get put in the Goblet of Fire? What tasks do Harry have to face now?
Have you ever been chosen for something you don’t want to do? Have you ever been nervous about a task you have to complete? Have you ever wanted to do well so you don’t let your friends down? Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fourth book in the series by J.K Rowling, it is a fiction and a mystery novel. In the story, Harry Potter and his best friends Hermione and Ron have an exciting year at Hogwarts with Harry being chosen as a second Hogwarts champion for the Triwizard Tournament which is an event involving two other schools of magic. The Triwizard Tournament had not happened for one-hundred years and that year it was happening at Hogwarts. There was only supposed to be one champion from each school, but mysteriously Harry’s name got put in the Goblet of Fire but he didn’t put it in. Once a name is chosen from the Goblet of Fire, that champion must compete.
I would say that Harry Potter is definitely a very brave and courageous character. He is brave to take on the tasks that follow from being a Triwizard Tournament champion. Harry shows courage when he cares about all his friends and defends them. He also shows courage when he faces his fears. For example, in the story Harry was chosen to compete in the Triwizard Tournament. He didn’t want to compete. He knew it would be dangerous and he didn’t know as much magic as the other champions did considering they were three grades older than him and had learned more. Harry Potter is like other lots of other people. He gets nervous when he thinks he is not good enough for something, he looks out for his friends, and he wants to do well.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a fantastic novel which I would recommend for readers who enjoy reading mystery and fantasy fiction novels and who would want an exciting story to read and enjoy.
