For ten years, they and their son Dudley treated Harry hard. Simply put before Harry's eleventh birthday, a letter arrives, addressed to Harry but destroyed by his uncle before Harry can read it. As a result, a pile of letters rains into the house in an open, albeit small, gap, and to escape, Vernon Dursleya takes his family to a remote island. When they were calm, Hagrid shattered the door to tell Harry what the Dursleys had hidden from him: Harry was a witch and had been accepted into the Hogwarts School for the coming year.
