In the never-ending war between good and evil, The Chronicles of Narnia set the stage for battles of epic proportions. Some take place in vast fields, where the forces of light and darkness clash. But other battles occur within the small chambers of the heart and are equally decisive.
Journeys to the ends of the world, fantastic creatures, betrayals, heroic deeds, and friendships won and lost all come together in an unforgettable world of magic. So let the adventures begin.
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.

Not as a stand alone story, but most definitely if my friend was interested in listening to 'The Chronicles of Narnia'.
I would strongly recommend that they begin their adventures in Narnia with this story.
I liked the cabbie so much - Frank - by name and nature. One who was a king in both of his worlds.
My skin tingles when I remember the birth of Narnia - to the song of Lion.
Definitely not a strong reaction.
This very much a prequel, a story that helps to make sense of the next book - ' The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe'.
Without this book that one is diminished, but this book most definitely needs to be linked with the series.
This is a must-listen prequel. All the books are relatively short, so no time is wasted.
