Book Review of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia)

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia)

I read the entire set of 7 little Narnia books every 3 to 5 years: I must! A great story, well told, true at many levels (as good fantasy fiction often is), memorable characters, good humor too. Though this one, LWW, is often listed first or packaged first in the set, it is actually #2 in the chronology of Lewis' overall scheme. Highly recommended at all ages; if fact, I read the full set out loud, chapter by chapter, as bedtime stories for my grandson when he was 4-5 years old. We agreed, by the way, on our favorite characters in the series: Puddleglum, the Marsh-wiggle, closely followed by Reepicheep, the incomparably noble mouse.
