Publisher's Summary

Narnia...where the woods are thick and cool, where the Talking Beasts are called to life, a new world where the adventure begins.

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.

    "A "damn fine" book!"

    A great listen, or as I think Uncle Andrew would call this, a "damn fine" book!

    "How Wonderful Magic is, Yet How Dreadful it Could also Be"

    The Magician's Nephew is the first of C.S. Lewis' tales in his series of novels, The Chronicles of Narnia. Not only does his novel, with its charming fairytale- like themes, take the reader through an exciting journey to worlds beyond his own, but it also leaves him wondering how wonderful magic is, yet how dreadful it could also be. Both Aslan, the founder of the peaceful land of Narnia, and Jaddis, the Queen of the ruined land of Charm, are capable of practicing magic. Lewis shows that the struggle between good and evil, white and dark magic has ever since been existed among rulers of other worlds, just as it exists in ours. There is no good without evil, but to whom should victory be declared, this is what the reader discovers for himself in the coming tales of The Chronicles of Narnia.
