The Daily Prophet

I DO NOT OWN THIS STORY!! this is about all of the daily prophet paper clippings in the books I have just copied them out because if you are like me you will just love to go through and read all of the papers thanksXX


7. The Prisoner Of Azkaban

The likely looking paragraph

Non-magic people (more commonly known as Muggles) were particulary afraid of magic in Medieval times, but not very good at recognising it. On the rare occasion that they did catch a real Witch or Wizard, burning had no effect whatsoever. The Witch or Wizard would perform a basic Flame-freezing Charm and then pretend to shriek with pain while enjoying a nice, gentle tickling sensation. Indeed, Wendelin the Weird enjoyed being burnt so much that she allowed herself to be caught no fewer than forty-seven times in various disguises.

The winner of the wizard lottery


Arthur Weasley, Head of the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts Office at the Ministry of Magic, has won the annual Daily Prophet Grand Prize Galleon Draw.

A delighted Mr Weasley told the Daily Prophet, "We will be spending the gold on a summer holiday in Egypt, where our eldest son, Bill, works as a curse breaker for Gringotts Wizarding Bank."

The Weasley family will be spending a month in Egypt, returning for the start of the new school year at Hogwarts, which five of the Weasley children currently attend.

Ron's birthday note

Dear Harry,

Happy birthday!
Look, I'm really sorry about that telephone call. I hope the Muggles didn't you a hard time. I asked Dad, and he reckons I shouldn't of shouted.

It's brilliant here in Egypt. Bill's taken us round all the tombs and you wouldn't believe the curses those old Egyptian wizards put on them. Mum wouldn't let Ginny come in the last one. There were all these mutant skeletons in there, of Muggles who'd broken in and grown extra head sand stuff.

I couldn't believe it when Dad won the Daily Prophet Draw. Seven hundred galleons! Most of it's gone on this holiday, but they're going to buy  me a new wand for next year. We'll be back about a week before term starts and we'll be going up to London to get my new wand and books. Any Chance of meeting you there? Don't let the Muggles get you down! Try and come to London.

PS: Percy's Head Boy. He got the letter last week.

This is a Pocket Sneakoscope. If there's someone untrustworthy around, it's supposed to light up and spin. Bill says it's rubbish sold for wizard tourists and isn't reliable, because it kept lighting up at dinner last night. But he didn't realise Fred and George had put beetles in his soup.

Bye, Ron.

Hermione's message

Dear Harry,

Ron wrote to me and told me about his phone call to your Uncle Vernon. I do hope you're all right.

I'm on holiday in France at the moment and I didn't know how I was going to send this to you- what if they'd opened this at Customs?- but then Hedwig turned up! I think she wanted to make sure you got something for your birthday for a change. I bought your present by owl-order; there was an advertisement in the Daily Prophet (I've been getting it delivered, it's so good to keep up with what's going on in the wizarding world). Did you see that picture of Ron and his family a week ago? I bet he's learning loads, I'm really jealous- the ancient Egyptian wizards were fascinating.

There's some interesting local history of witchcraft here, too. I've re-written my whole History of Magic essay to include some of the things I've found out. I hope it's not too long, it's two rolls of parchment more than Professor Binns asked for.

Ron says he's going to be in London in the last week of the holidays. Can you make it? Will your Aunt and Uncle let you come? I really hope you can. If not, I'll see you on the Hogwarts Express on September the first!

Love from


P.S. Ron says Percy's Head Boy. I'll bet Percy's really pleased. Ron doesn't seem too happy about it.  

The birthday message from Hagrid

Dear Harry,

Happy Birthday!

Think you might find this useful for next year. Won't say no more here. Tell you when I see you.

Hope the Muggles are treating you right.

All the best,
