In this chapter, we are also introduced to the artifacts and terms of the wizard world. The term "Muggle" is introduced, as is Harry's pet owl, Hedwig, and we see the unusual school supplies as Harry inventories everything that his uncle has locked up under the stairs. The narrator's tone in describing the magical artifacts is unsurprised. As we see in chapter one, Harry faces many ordinary problems. He has a bully for a cousin, and he wonders why his good friends from school seem to have forgotten about him. Because J.K. Rowling creates a surprisingly normal coming-of-age story for Harry within the fantastic and imaginative world of wizardry, these terms and articles become familiar background to the ups and downs of Harry's daily life. We are to understand that wizards live seemingly ordinary lives.
