The Chamber of Secrets has been opened by the heir of Slytherin. Slytherin was one of the four founders of Hogwarts but left because he wanted to make it only available to ‘pure’ wizards and witches not ‘mudbloods’. Before he left he created this Chamber in which lives some terrible evil. The teachers are afraid that they will have to close Hogwarts and send the students home.
In his second year at Hogwarts, Harry starts hearing voices when he first finds a cat, then two students who have been petrified, that is turned into statues. They’re not dead but they have to wait until herbology classes finish growing Mandrakes which will give them a cure. Hermione is the next victim and when Ron’s sister Ginny is taken into the Chamber, Ron and Harry have to come to the rescue. Ginny is being guarded by the evil Basilisk, a monstrously large snake, which Harry has to fight to save her.
