He had never had any money for candy with the Dursleys, and now that he had pockets rattling with gold and silver he was ready to buy as many Mars Bars as he could carry -- but the woman didn't have Mars Bars. What she did have were Bettie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, Drooble's Best Blowing Gum, Chocolate Frogs.

Hagrid leaned across the table. Behind the wild beard and eyebrows he wore a very kind smile.
"Now, what's the platform number?" said the boys' mother.
