Great for any age... Mar 1, 2007
I loved the entire series. If you get this book for your child, it's a good oppritunity to bring out the christain aspects of the story. (There are lots of books out there to help you with this!) It was an enjoyable read and I loved how the last book ended. It was perfect!
A Classic Jan 31, 2007
Can anyone actually say something negative about this C.S. Lewis classic? A great story for both children and adults as only Lewis can tell it.
Nice book Jan 8, 2007
I have been buying this book for a few years as a gift for kids for Christmas, and it is always appreciated. This year, I bought it for my son, and he loves it.
Note that some kids will do better with the five individual paperbacks, e.g. if they have to carry the book(s) around with them while reading.
Great Gift! Great Service Jan 4, 2007
