The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
C. S. Lewis

Sent away from London during Second World War, the four Pevensie children are taken in by a professor who lives in a very large house in the country. On the first day of exploring their new abode, little Lucy discovers a mirror-fronted wardrobe in an otherwise bare room; creeping into it, she crosses an unmarked threshold to find herself in an unexpected place indeed—a snow-covered wood. Curiosity lures her forward toward a lamppost and a strange figure, half man, half goat, holding an umbrella. As she soon discovers, she has wandered into Narnia, a fantastical realm corrupted by the influence of an evil White Witch who has usurped the power of a mighty lion king, Aslan, and cast the land into permanent winter, “without any Christmas.” Lewis held the view that “a children’s story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children’s story.” Wanting his book to offer something to older readers as well, he shaped the Pevensie children’s Narnian escapade into a religious allegory of betrayal, forgiveness, and resurrection. The seed that grew into The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe also sprouted six additional Narnia tales. All of these are worth reading, but none is as thrilling, magical, and memorable as the first. It is an ideal tale for a family to read aloud together.
