Synopsis
One of the most highly respected fantasy novels ever written, THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE can be seen as both an exciting children's adventure story and an allegory about faith. The story begins when the Pevensie siblings (Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy) escape the dangers of World War II-era London by relocating to the country home of family friend Professor Kirke. One day, while playing hide-and-seek, Lucy hides in an old wardrobe and finds herself transported to the world of Narnia, a magical land frozen in eternal winter by the evil White Witch. With the help of her siblings, Lucy sets forth to free Narnia from the White Witch's reign by bringing about the return of Narnia's guardian, Aslan the lion, a quest impeded by a shocking betrayal. Although THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE was the first of the Chronicles of Narnia to be published, many readers prefer to begin the series with THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW (the sixth book published), because it describes the history of Narnia and sets the stage for the adventures of the Pevensie siblings. THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE has been adapted for the screen several times, including two live-action British TV productions (1967 and 1988), a British/American animated TV movie, and a big Hollywood film in 2005.

A classic and a story for everyone to read. Three children enter a world of snow and ice, one overtaken by evil and then the adventure begins.

My first introduction into Narnia was from my wife who, reading it, exclaimed "...what a beautiful picture of Christ." Allegorical somewhat as a piece of children's literature, and not overly accurate theologically, nevertheless, when I saw what happened when Aslan took Edmond's place, then I understood what she meant, and enjoyed the beauty of the picture immensely. And the character of Lucy is the most interesting of the 4 children, picturing the simplicity of trust in Aslan.
