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.

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.
Say something about yourself!
I loved Michael Hordern's narration of this old favourite of mine, but found the music so distracting that I gave up listening after half an hour. Obviously just a matter of taste because I note that another customer thought it enhanced the story.
What a beautiful story. As I now am officially an adult at 27 I found myself listening to this story and being taken back to a young child and watching bits on tv. The narrator is amazing and does a wide variety of voices so you are encaptured by each character. The music adds to this and I spent the whole time enthralled and wondering how it would finish. I would definetly recommend and cannot wait to listen to the next one!
