still good more than 10 years later

A Great audio book for children (and adults!!) i had this as a child on cassette, and bought it again as a 21 year old. As with all radio 4 productions the dramatisation is faultless. In my opinion this is a great first audio book, as well as the best first C.S Lewis. the storyline is fantastic, brilliant dialogue too.

Good story. Sound levels go from very loud to quue

Loved the book so had high expectations. Uncle Andrews voice over is a little annoying. The music was also very loud in comparison to the story voices.

As a whole I enjoyed the story and it's great for kids
