Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full cast dramatisation of the first adventure in C. S. Lewis' classic Narnia series. Polly Plummer and her next-door neighbour, Digory, are exploring one wet afternoon when the accidental discovery of some magic rings sends them off on the most exciting and dangerous journey of their lives. They fall through magic pools to the ruined city of Charn where Digory awakens the terrifying figure of Jadis, the last Queen. But with true evil comes true goodness as the children discover when they come face to face with the mighty lion Aslan.

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.

Bad audio levels...

Amazon story and the bit about creation will make you go WOW! But the audio levels are inconsistent as if the audio editor was drunk at the time!

simply gorgeous

I would certainly recommend this book, to any story loving person (be they child or grown-up). The story is compelling, the overall performance is delightful. The narrator (old man's voice) sometimes slurs a little (in words like 'ages'), the children's voices are clear and their performance is convincing. Very like all Narnia-audibles.
