The Secret of Platform 13

Long before the Hogwarts Express pulled out of Platform 9 3/4, magical goings-on were already afoot at at King’s Cross station. It’s true. Under Platform 13, a secret door leads to a magical island; a door which only opens every nine years. Last time it opened, the island’s baby prince was stolen and lost on the streets of London. Now a peculiar rescue party, led by a wizard and an ogre, must find him and bring him back. But their long-lost prince has become a spoilt rich boy who doesn’t believe in magic. How can they take him back home? Perhaps you’d like to go in his place?
