The Sorting Hat's New Song is the eleventh chapter of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.


‘Did everyone see that Grubbly-Plank woman?’ asked Ginny. ‘What’s she doing back here? Hagrid can’t have left, can he?’

‘I’ll be quite glad if he has,’ said Luna, ‘he isn’t a very good teacher, is he?’

‘Yes, he is!’ said Harry, Ron and Ginny angrily.

Harry glared at Hermione. She cleared her throat and quickly said, ‘Erm ... yes ... he’s very good.’

‘Well, we in Ravenclaw think he’s a bit of a joke,’ said Luna, unfazed.

‘You’ve got a rubbish sense of humour then,’ Ron snapped, as the wheels below them creaked into motion.

Luna did not seem perturbed by Ron’s rudeness; on the contrary, she simply watched him for a while as though he were a mildly interesting television programme.


There are no moments from this chapter.
