HARRY JAMES POTTER’S ...view middle of the document...
Harry and Hermione follow him in and come into a building called the Shrieking Shack. They discover that the dog is Sirius Black. Harry tries to kill Sirius before Lupin arrives. Lupin admits he’s a werewolf and that Sirius and Pettigrew were friends with James Potter. Sirius was supposed to protect the Potters but secretly switched this duty to Pettigrew. Sirius did not kill Peter, but escaped by blasting the street and turning into a rat, and they force Scabbers (Ron’s rat) to reveal his true identity. Ron’s rat was Peter. Harry stops Black and Lupin from killing Pettigrew and they return to the castle. Full moon comes and Lupin turns into a werewolf. Pettigrew escapes and Harry and Sirius are surrounded by Dementors who try to start to take Harry’s soul, they are saved at the last minute by a Patronus sent by someone who Harry believes to be his father. Harry finds out that Black is about to lose his soul even though Dumbledore, the headmaster believes that Peter is the guilty one. Hermione uses her time turner to take Harry back in time with her Harry and Hermione rescue Buckbeak and re-watch the scenes of the night, until they see the Dementors cornering Harry and Sirius. Harry is waits to see who sent the Patronus, only to realize that he was the one who sent it. He casts a powerful Patronus which saves his past self and Sirius. Sirius is rescued and flys on Buckbeak. Snape is angry over Black's escape and is convinced that Harry, Ron and Hermione were involved, but is completely unable to prove it as neither of them appear to have escaped from the Hospital Wing ever since they came. Lupin resigns the next day. On the way back from the school, Harry gets a letter from Sirius saying that he is successfully in "hiding".
Significance of the Title
The title of the book is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The Significance of the title of the book is really obvious. The Prisoner of Azkaban is central to the plot because it refers to Sirius Black, Harry’s Godfather. Everyone in the book believed him to have killed 13 people but in reality it was really Peter Pettigrew who did that. Sirus Black is also an Animagus which means he can turn into a dog at will. Also Harry Potter refers to the main character. Anyway back to Sirius, everyone thought he was out to get at Harry but really he just wanted revenge on Peter Pettrigrew who was an Animagus too who was Ron’s pet rat. Sirius Black was also Harry’s Dad’s best friend. Finally if it wasn’t for Sirius the book would be kinda useless. That is the significance of the title.
