Harpercollins Publishing The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Softcover

What begins as a simple game of hide-and-seek quickly turns into the adventure of a lifetime when Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy walk through the wardrobe and into the land of Narnia. There they find a cold, snow-covered land frozen into eternal winter by the evil White Witch. All who challenge her rule are turned to stone. The children can only hope that Aslan, the Great Lion, will return to Narnia and restore beauty and peace to the land. But will the power of Aslan be enough to conquer the dark magic of the White Witch?

This edition contains illustrations by the original artist which enhance the understanding of the text. I'm using this book with my Level 5 ESL students--a great way to increase vocabulary and learn English idioms, as well as enjoy a fabulous story.

The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is the first book C.S. Lewis wrote in the Chronicles of Narnia series in the early 1950's. The story is of the four Pevensie children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. The children are sent into the country during the bombing raids on London in World War II. The children arrive at the estate of the eccentric Professor Kirke. On a rainy day with nothing to do the children decide to play a game of hide and seek. As the children are hiding Lucy stumbles upon a room whose only contents are a blueglass bottle and and old wardrobe. Lucy chooses the wardrobe for a hiding place however as she manuevers through it she is magically transported to the land of Narnia, where it is always winter but never Christmas. In Narnia she meets the faun, Mr. Tumnus who tells her of the White Witches magical enchantment over Narnia and of the prophecy of Cair Parivel/Aslan's return which will bring the reign of the White Witch to its end. This is as far as I am going to go in giving away the plot of the book. This book is Number 2 in the series the Chronicles of Narnia. I would suggest when reading the books to read them in the order which Lewis wrote them. This story will delight both young and old alike. It is a classic to read over and over again with your family.

This book is fabulous. What I found is, to make it a better read, constantly compare Aslan to Jesus. It makes the story really come to life.

This is a fabulous book. It is such a lovely tale for Christians. Aslan, the great Lion is killed unjustly, Like Jesus, but returns triumphantly. It is amazing! It is no surprise it is so popular. I recommend this-HIGHLY! Please buy it. Also consider the Focus On The Family audio adaptation of it-it make sit come a live and make sit all the more meaningful. Super-Brilliant.

This book is great!! I encourage all kids to read it, no matter how old you are. When I first began to read this series I wished for more. I read this one over like six times!! Once you read this book, you'll never forget the World of Narnia. It'll always have a special place in your heart filled and longing for a world like that to be real!
