an absolute classic!



Start with this one!

...Not "The Magician's Nephew." I don't understand why most publishers now are claiming "Magician" is the first in the series. I really don't think the author intended it that way, and I think it takes a lot of the magic out of the series if children read them out of order. There is such a thing as a "prequel," and it's so much fun to read "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" first and then find out more about the origins of Narnia later in "The Magician's Nephew!"

C.S. Luis is your pusher

The first book in this series is wonderful and imaginative. The following are still pretty good, but they get increasingly pushy on the religious front. By the end it just feels like I’m being yelled at by a priest, who is telling me to go to church.

The audio books are narrated by Patrick Stuart, who does a fantastic job, I recommend it.


I've read this at least 5 times! It is a really great book to read on a snowy day.
