Another wonderful tale by C.S. Lewis. In fact, my ten year old son enjoyed this story as much as I did! Although the deeper points of this enchanting story may be lost on the young, the beauty of this book is that it has a philosophical aspect that draws in the mind while sparking the imagination. We can't wait to read the next book in the series.
