Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.
This was the sixth book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the first book in the series.
Don't miss any of the books in C.S. Lewis' classic Chronicles of Narnia series.

"Lewis's storytelling is magnificent, and Branagh's performance completely and utterly engaging." (AudioFile)
Gave me a taste for the time in history when one would look forward to listening to a wonderful narrated story of adventure on the Radio. Bonus is knowing the author's moral parable that is being told.
A great story that sheds light on his first book "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe". How Narnia came to be, where the witch came from, why the wardrobe was magical in the fist place, and how that weird lamppost got to be alone in the woods lighting the way from our world to Narnia. Quite a feat to connect all the dots and remove the mystery of unanswered questions.
When I saw this book was narrated by Mr. Branagh, I had to hear it and have it! I love the Narnia books, and I just knew that Kenneth Branagh would do a wonderful job. I was right. I was not the least bit disappointed! A definite must have!
