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'm almost 28 and remember watching a few movies and listening to a few radio dramas based on this book. I've never heard or read it for myself. I drive about an hour for church every Sunday and started listening to this on one such drive. What a treat! What CS Lewis says in his dedication rings true for all readers, it is good to rediscover the value and joy of fairy tales later in life. The allegories in Lewis' story make for a wonderful, joyful explanation of the Christian life.
Spending four hours enjoying this treasure will be well spent, whatever your age.
I've always loved The Chronicles of Narnia when I growing up every few years I'll break them out for a good read now that their in audio form I hope my kids will love it too
Michael York is a treat to listen to on this reading! His choice of accents, pitch of voice - everything combines to bring the story to life. Highly recommended for adults and children alike.

It was a treat listening to Michael York read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. He is a friendly and engaging reader; and he brings the actor's craft to portraying the characters. You will enjoy this!
