Nobody really liked Care of Magical Creatures, which, after the action-packed first class, had become extremely dull. Hagrid seemed to have lost his confidence. They were now spending lesson after lesson learning how to look after flobberworms, which had to be some of the most boring creatures in existence.
"Stuck his head in the water barrel," said Hermione, putting the tankard away.
"Yo u want to set a better example for your sister!" snapped Mrs. Weasley.
"Hasn' -- hasn' anyone bin able ter open their books?" said Hagrid, looking crestfallen.
Harry still hadn't decided what he was going to say to Professor McGonagall when the bell rang at the end of the lesson, but it was she who brought up the subject of Hogsmeade first.
And with a last smile and shake of Harry's hand, Fudge left the room. Tom now moved forward, beaming at Harry.

"Thank you, Dean," said Professor Lupin, putting his wand away again. "Shall we proceed?"
They all climbed the stone steps into the deserted entrance hall.
A pair of enormous purple toads sat gulping wetly and feasting on dead blowflies. A gigantic tortoise with a jewel-encrusted shell was glittering near the window. Poisonous orange snails were oozing slowly up the side of their glass tank, and a fat white rabbit kept changing into a silk top hat and back again with a loud popping noise. Then there were cats of every color, a noisy cage of ravens, a basket of funny custard-colored furballs that were humming loudly, and on the counter, a vast cage of sleek black rats that were playing some sort of skipping game using their long, bald tails.,
