Did you know that both Harry Potter and his creator J.K. Rowling celebrate their birthdays on July 31? Also, on this day, when he turned 11, Harry discovered that he is a wizard – a pivotal moment indeed.

What better day to relive some good ol’ Hogwarts magic? Life at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry revolves around the house you belong to. The first thing young witches and wizards do, when they enter the school, is to get sorted into one of the four houses.

Take this quiz to find out how well you know the houses. Scroll through the slides.

If the Sorting Hat gave you a choice, which house would you choose and why? Write to us in not more than 100 words. Mark the subject of your entry as HARRY POTTER and mail it to youngworld@thehindu.co.in or The Hindu Young World, 859/860 Anna Salai, Kasturi and Sons, Chennai 600002. Make sure you have written your name, class, school and city. Students from Stds. II to VIII are eligible. The first few creative entries will win exciting prizes.
