Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full cast dramatisation of the second adventure in C. S. Lewis' classic Narnia series.

When Lucy comes across the old wardrobe standing alone in the spare room, she thinks she has found a good place for hide and seek. But then she tumbles headlong into a magical world of fauns, dwarves, and giants, of animals that talk and horses that fly: the land of Narnia.

It is so extraordinary that, at first, her brothers and sister don't believe it can be real. Soon, though, Peter Edmund and Susan find Narnia too and the adventures really begin. Together they must battle against an evil white witch to break her cruel grip on Narnia, a land she has cast in perpetual winter, without Christmas. Only one thing can holdfast against such wickedness, the mighty Aslan.

Following the thrills of the Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media film, let the fun and excitement continue with this all-encompassing drama that will unfold on an even bigger screen, the one of your imagination. This spine-tingling story of a fantastic realm populated by dwarves, fauns, and giants will carry you away into the enchanted world of Narnia.

Great introduction for the youngest crowd

I adore the chronicles of Narnia and I want my son to enjoy them too. He's to young to read or have these books read to him, but I thought this dramatization might be just the thing (because I'm impatient!). I was right. He enjoyed listening to it and even remembered many details. We will listen to it again I'm sure.

Perfect way to kill a car journey!

What made the experience of listening to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe the most enjoyable?

I think most of us know this story from our own childhoods, but this is a great way to share it with the kids.

Any additional comments?

Mine (aged 5 and 8) loved it from start to finish, which is strange as they hadn't wanted to read it from the bookshelf, but were more than happy to listen and enjoy it in the car. The little one did cry over Aslan,but enjoyed it nonetheless.

good story to listen in night.

I liked story but dramatizing is unrealistic. Why the birds tweeting? It should be winter in Narnia.
