'This is the land of Narnia,' said the Faun, 'where we are now; all that lies between the lamp-post and the great castle of Cair Paravel on the eastern sea. And you-you have come from the wild woods of the west?' 'I-I got in through the wardrobe in the spare room,' said Lucy. 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 country frozen in eternal winter by the evil White Witch. All who challenge her rule are turned into stone. Narnia, once filled with all manner of Talking Beasts, Dwarfs, Giants and Fauns, is now a dark, joyless wasteland. 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? Now considered a classic, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is C. S. Lewis's second book in The Chronicles of Narnia, which has captured the imaginations of children for several generations. 'It is, in turn, beautiful, frightening, wise...' wrote an astonished reviewer in The New York Times upon reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Is is this same sense of wonder that accompanies the reading of all seven books of The Chronicles of Narnis, C. S. Lewis's masterpiece of children's literature.
