I wonder, what learning will happen this week?
Can you describe your own wizard?
Professor Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Here is a direct quote from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone:
P77 in the book published by Bloomsbury (November 2010)
Harry unwrapped his Chocolate Frod and picked up the card. It showed a man's face. He wore half-moon glasses, had a strong crocked nose and flowing silver hair., beard and mustache. Underneath the picture was the name Albus Dumbledore.
"So this is Dumbledore!" said Harry.
"Don't tell me you'd never heard of Dumbledore!" said Ron. "Can I have a frog? I might get Agrippa - thanks -"
Harry turned over his card and read:
Albus Dumbledore, currently Headmaster of Hogwarts. Considered by many the greatest wizard of modern times, Professor Dumbledore is particularly famous for his defeat of the dark wizard Grindelwald in 1945, for the discovery of the twelve uses of dragon's blood and his work on alchemy with his partner, Nicolas Flamel. Professor Dumbledore enjoys chamber music and tenpin bowling.
Gandolf from the Lord of the Rings
Here is a direct quote from the Lord of the Rings describing Gandolf as he enters the story.
Days passed and The Day drew nearer. An odd-looking waggon laden with odd-looking packages rolled into Hobbiton on evening and toiled up the Hill to Bag End. The startled Hobbits peered out of Lamplit doors to gape at it. It was driven by out outlandish folk, singing strange songs: dwarves with long beards and deep hoods. A few of them remained at Bag End. At the end of the second week of September a cart came in through Brandywine Bridge in broad daylight. An old man was driving it all alone. He wore a tall pointed blue hat, a long grey cloak and a silver scarf. He had a long white beard and bushy eyebrows that stuck out beyond the brim of his hat. Small hobbit-children ran after the cart all through hobbiton and right up the hill. It had a cargo of fireworks, as they rightly guessed. At Bilbo's front door the old man began to unload: there were great bundles of fireworks of all sorts and shapes, each labelled with a large G and the elf-rune.
