Book Excerpt for the Day

    “Harry,” said Lockhart, his large white teeth gleaming in the sunlight as he shook his head.  “Harry, Harry, Harry.”

    Completely nonplussed, Harry said nothing.

    “When I heard – well, of course, it was my fault.  Could have kicked myself.”

    Harry had no idea what he was talking about.  He was about to say so when Lockhart went on.  “Don’t know when I’ve been more shocked.  Flying a car to Hogwarts!  Well, of course, I knew at once why you’d done it.  Stood out a mile.  Harry, Harry, Harry.”

    It was remarkable how he could show every one of those brilliant teeth even when he wasn’t talking.
