Book Review: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis

narnia_coverI read The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe with my class this year and I liked it.

The story is about four kids, Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan, who go into a wardrobe at the Professor’s House. Lucy goes into the wardrobe before the others, during a game of Hide-n-Seek on a rainy day. She meets a faun (a creature in Narnia), Mr. Tummus, in a forest where the wardrobe entered. He takes her to his cave where he lives, and serves tea.

Two hours pass and Lucy runs back through the wardrobe to her siblings and says,
“I’m here! I’m here! I’m not lost!” But it turns out it’s only been two minutes since the game started– according to the rest of them. Lucy talks about Narnia and none of them believe her. Days later, they all go in the wardrobe and go to Narnia and discover that she was telling the truth. And that starts the Adventure in Narnia.

There is also a movie but it is somewhat different. I recommend this book for age 9 and up because it is challenging in some parts and it is a good fantasy book.
