And the answer for week 1 was...

The Philosopher's Stone

The first objet to find (= trouver) was the philosopher's stone!

THE CLUES (= les indices)

The stone can turn any metal into GOLD. The colour of the stone is RED. The stone can make people immortal, and so ETERNAL. Nicolas FLAMEL was a manuscript seller (= vendeur) who lived in the 14th and 15th centuries (= siècle). A legend says that he was also (= aussi) an alchemist and that he discovered the philosopher's stone.

The stone plays an important part in the first book of the Harry Potter series. Lord Voldemort is very weak (= faible) and he needs (= a besoin de) the stone to restore his body. A new professor, Professor Quirrell, is one of Voldemort's supporters and he will help him to find the stone. Harry Potter and his friends will fight and try to stop them.
