Four adventurous siblings-Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie- step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch.
But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change ...and a great sacrifice.

Review by kren250
Classic children's fantasy novel, with an emphasis on God and religion (although I think most kids probably won't pick up on that---I didn't as a child). I recently read this one aloud to my kids. We all enjoyed it, but it didn't have quite the same magic as when I read it for the first time at the age of nine.
Review by jmattas
Very captivating, wish I had read this as a kid. I liked the old-fashionedness, and the timeless idea of a world unreachable by adults, with its clear (?) distinction between good and evil. I'll surely recommend this to my future children :)(added later): Looking back after reading the whole saga in about eight months, the first story seems quite small and innocent, though it did deal with the fate of a nation. What I like about it now is the sense of originality and the simple but powerful idea.

This is a timeless book that will remain a classic for years to come. This story takes the reader into the world of Narnia where animals talk, witches rule, and its always snowing. As the plot continues, characters begin to play more specific roles allowing the audience to recognize certain characteristics which may make it easy to relate to, or find someone (sibling) who reminds them of Edmund or etc. This book of fantasy is enjoyable for all ages and the plot of the story rings true to Lewis's writing.
Review by sllumpkin
In this book the 4 main characters (4 children) discover a wardrobe that leads to a magical place called Narnia. The book describes their adventures in Narnia.
Review by Radaghast
The Chronicles of Narnia rightfully deserves its place among the greatest novels of all time. Smaller in scope than the Lord of the Rings, but not less influential, Lewis creates a world that wonderfully mirrors our own.
