"That lot won't come cheap," said George, with a quick look at his parents. "Lockhart's books are really expensive ......
"I don't believe it!" Wood hissed in outrage. "I booked the field for today! We'll see about this!"
A very small, mousy-haired boy had been called forward to place the hat on his head. Harry's eyes wandered past him to where Professor Dumbledore, the headmaster, sat watching the Sorting from the staff table, his long silver beard and half-moon glasses shining brightly in the candlelight. Several seats along, Harry saw Gilderoy Lockhart, dressed in robes of aquamarine. And there at the end was Hagrid, huge and hairy, drinking deeply from his goblet.

Ron went as red as Ginny. He dropped his books into the cauldron, too, and started toward Malfoy, but Harry and Hermione grabbed the back of his jacket.
"But, dear, if he got lost, how would we ever explain to his aunt and uncle?"
Gilderoy Lockhart heard him. He looked up. He saw Ron
