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 love romance, detectives, lawyers, mystery
Excellent reading. Really captured the intent of Lewis. Great mental images portrayed.
Listening to this took me back to the days of my children's childhood. Suddenly, I was back,working on my undergrad, sitting cross-legged in my boys' bedroom, reading, with the little ones gathered around. This go 'round, I had time to pay attention to religious symbolism---and excellent voices were reading to me.
I loved this book! It's not just for kids, I am a 36 yr. old mother of 2 and I enjoyed it immensely. My kids are still too young but when they're ready I definitely want them to read this one! I wish I had read this one as a kid but I wasn't interested in it back then. This one will delight readers of all ages.
My 6 year old daughter & 8 year old son liked this book and listened intently several times. I felt the narrator was appropriate for the material for the parts I heard.
This was a wonderful reading of my favourite childhood book. It was a pleasure to travel back to Narnia again! My Children were also enthralled by the story it is an excellent introduction before going to the new movie!
I've loved this writer since high school... but i just now got around to reading his children stories. I wanted to read this before the movie came out and now that i have i can't wait to see how someone will materialize all his wonderful scenes. i suggest reading the first book in the series before this one (which is the second). defenitely share this with your kids.
