There are three main characters in Harry Potter.
When he was a baby, his parents Lily and James Potter were murdered by a dark wizard (that means he's evil, if you really must know) named Lord Voldemort. So, a half-giant named Hagrid took baby Harry on a flying motorcycle until he ended up on a street called 4 Privet Drive. Then a wizard named Albus Dumbledore took baby Harry and put him on the doorstep of Lily Potter's sister.
These people were named Petunia, Vernon, and Dudley. Their last name was Dursley. They were not wizards and treated Harry horribly. Harry lived in a cabinet in the basement and got little food. He had no toys and Petunia and Vernon purposely forgot his birthday every year. Harry's brother Dudley teased him. One day at the zoo, Harry talked to a snake and it broke out of its glass cage. Harry got in trouble. Then, letters kept filling up the Dursley's fireplace. Vernon loathed it. So he tried to stop the letters from coming. Since that did not work, they moved to a small wooden shack on a tall rock above the sea. Then, Hagrid came and told Harry he was a wizard and that he had been accepted into a magical school called Hogwarts. Hagrid gave Harry and birthday cake and took him to Diagon Alley to shop for school supplies.

Quidditch is a sport played by wizards on broomsticks. There are three balls. The quaffle is big and red. It is thrown into the goalposts to score points. The bludgers are black. There are two of them. They move quickly and try to knock players off their broomsticks. The Golden Snitch is small and golden. It has wings and moves quickly.
