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.

"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'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

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!
I love suspense, murder mysteries, psycho thriller books most of all! I listen when not taking classes for my masters degree.
I saw the movie first before I ever knew it was a book (it wasn't mandatory reading in middle school for me). It benefitted me, in my opinion, because I was able to see the movie playing in my minds-eye as I was listening. I enjoyed it greatly.
This is a book that I was read as a young child and enjoyed as a teen. Now as an adult what a wonderful re-introduction to a story that is connected with so many wonderful childhood memories.
He did a wonderful job. Good articulation and pronunciation.
It was wonderful listening to on a lengthy car trip.
Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
Although I have seen the movie before, this was wonderful to listen to original version. Beautiful language and imagery. Perfect narrator.
