    Narnia is in peril, and only Eustace and Jill can help. Along with Puddlegum, a gloomy but valiant Marsh-wiggle, they are sent by the mighty lion Aslan to find Prince Rilian, heir to the throne. Their quest leads them past hungry people-eating Giants, and deep into the dark underground. But the true test for this noble band of friends comes when they face an evil witch and her deadly enchantments.

    "Superb Narration - best story of the series"
    Overall

    My family and I love this book the most in the Chronicles of Narnia series. Jeremy Northrup's reading is superb and he has a large range of character voices which are engaging and delightful. C.S. Lewis was truly one the great authors and the scene where the witch tries to enchant the travelers is unforgettable. We were mesmerized from start to finish and our only regret was that the story wasn't longer.

    When Mary Lennox's parents die from cholera in India, the spoiled orphan is transplanted to her uncle's 600-year-old gloomy and secretive estate in England. She is certain that she is destined for misery at Misselthwaite Manor. However, she soon discovers an arched doorway into an overgrown garden, locked shut since the death of her aunt 10 years earlier.

    Catherine says: "A magical getaway"
    "Enjoyed it even more as an adult"
    Overall

    This was one of my favorite stories growing up and I found a new level of enjoyment listening to it as an adult with my children. It's a beautiful story and sure to enthrall any child with its unusual characters and emphasis on nature. The reader is superb and we loved her Yorkshire accent. I found the book to be funnier than I remembered as a child - in part because it's read so well. When the book ended there was silence and misty-eyes all around.
