When Digory and Polly are tricked by Digory's peculiar Uncle Andrew into becoming part of an experiment, they set off on the adventure of a lifetime. At last, they find themselves in the magical land of Narnia---Narnia before the Talking Beasts, before the Dwarfs, before all but the great Lion, Aslan. C.S. Lewis wrote The Magician's Nephew in answer to questions about the origins of Narnia. Intended to be read as the first book of the seven, it shows us how the adventures in Narnia all began.

This large, deluxe hardcover edition of the first title in the classic Chronicles of Narnia series, The Magician's Nephew, is a gorgeous introduction to the magical land of Narnia. The many readers who discovered C.S. Lewis's Chronicles through The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will be delighted to find that the next volume in the series is actually the first in the sequence--and a step back in time. In this unforgettable story, British schoolchildren Polly and Digory inadvertently tumble into the Wood Between the Worlds, where they meet the evil Queen Jadis and, ultimately, the great, mysterious King Aslan. We witness the birth of Narnia and discover the legendary source of all the adventures that are to follow in the seven books that comprise the series.
Rich, heavy pages, a gold-embossed cover, and Pauline Baynes's original illustrations (hand-colored by the illustrator herself 40 years later) make this special edition of a classic a bona fide treasure. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie CoulterFrom the Back Cover:
On cassette tape, the abridged audiobook of The Magician's Nephew—the first volume in the classic fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia—is performed by Claire Bloom.
On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But then the lion Aslan's song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a land that will be known as Narnia. And in Narnia, all things are possible.
Discover the magic of Narnia in The Magician's Nephew, the first title in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has enchanted readers of all ages for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you want to journey back to Narnia, read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
