Publisher's Summary

"It's a magic wardrobe. There's a wood inside it, and it's snowing! Come and see," begged Lucy. Lucy has stumbled upon a marvellous land of fauns and centaurs, nymphs and talking animals. But soon she discovers that it is ruled by the cruel White Witch, and can only be freed by Aslan, the great Lion, and four children.
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 first book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the second book in the series, preceded by The Magician's Nephew.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

This is a good version to introduce children to the Chronicles of Narnia. It is short enough to interest the younger children without missing out much of the story. I have really enjoyed revisiting the stories.

This is now my favourite version of this book :) Michael Hordon's narration makes this old favourite even more delightful.

I was wary of purchasing this because of the comments about the music, but while I can see how some might find it jarring I felt it added to the atmosphere rather than detracted.
