Lucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor's mysterious old house. At first her brothers and sister don't believe her when she tells of her visit to the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund, then Peter and Susan step through the wardrobe themselves. In Narnia they find a country buried under the evil enchantment of the White Witch. When they meet the Lion Aslan, they realize they've been called to a great adventure and bravely join the battle to free Narnia from the Witch's sinister spell.
This was the first book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the second book in the series, preceded by The Magician's Nephew.
Don't miss any of the books in C.S. Lewis' classic Chronicles of Narnia series.

"The only thing better than exploring Narnia with your children is having Michael York do it with you. With his precise, but lively, British accent, he eases listeners into the mysterious world hidden behind the wardrobe." (AudioFile)
"This classic tale celebrates its 50th anniversary with a delightful audio rendition. Actor Michael York's reading is a perfect match for this story." (School Library Journal)
I have read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at least 10 times. This was my first audio version of the book and it was excellent. The story can't be beaten, but Michal York was an amazing narrator who absolutely did C.S. Lewis's wonderful novel justice. I highly recommend this recording.
Well played by Michael York, this is a great story for youngsters, but has enough substance to appeal to adults. Not too long and well worth the listen.
A Classic Christian Allegorical Fantasy Story,
Highly recommend for children of all ages. I think hearing this story in the US, in 2015, requires a classic delivery from Michael York to make sense of the expressions from the Pevensie children.
