Norbert in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

By J.K. Rowling


Norbert is a baby Norwegian Ridgeback dragon. He's also illegal in England. A mysterious stranger trades him (as an egg) to Hagrid for some very important information. Hagrid falls in love with Norbert, but everyone else thinks he's too dangerous to keep. He's sent to be cared for by Charlie Weasley.
