C. S. Lewis’ timeless classic, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a consistent favorite amongst younger readers, and the best known novel of the series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Set in World War II, four siblings are evacuated from their home in London to live with a Professor in the countryside, far away from the bombings. Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy make the best of their isolated circumstances, playing hide-and-seek in the vacuous house. Lucy’s discovery of a massive wardrobe leads to the perfect hiding spot – a brand new world, tucked away at the back of the wardrobe, by the name of Narnia. The children are pulled into Narnia in a blitz of adventure, discovering that their arrival has spurred on change in this newfound world, a realigning of power that directly revolves around them. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is entertaining and well-paced, with vivid battle scenes, modulated by scenes packed with emotional depth. Lewis’ novel inspires an infinite curiosity about Narnia, a fantastically detailed world, and reading the six other novels that encompass The Chronicles of Narnia may only begin to quench this curiosity.
