Coreys Book Review Feb 3, 2006
Imagine that you are walking into a new house and you come across a room with a wardrobe. So you get curious to see what is inside it and then you open it and you think that it is only a regular wardrobe, but it's not. It just keeps going on and on and on and y finally you end up in the woods.
Well that's what Mr.C.S. Lewis thought of he made a book named The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, It starts out by talking about these kids that got moved to London from Poland. Then they went looking around and one of the siblings finds the wardrobe and then explores it and finds out that it is not a regular wardrobe. So one of the siblings were in the wardrobe and found the woods and was walking along and found out that here feet were getting cold and it was because in the wardrobe the place was called Narnia. Then she saw grass, snow, trees, and a light so she was freaked out. When she got out it had only been a few seconds outside the wardrobe and it was an hour in the wardrobe. So she told here brothers and sisters and they didn't believe her so she broke down in tears and sobbed all night.
The next time the siblings were playing hide and seek so two of the siblings went into the wardrobe and then they found out that it never stopped snowing in Narnia and it would never stop snowing because of a lady named the white witch. The white witch found one of the siblings and the white witch told him if she could have one son of Adam and a daughter of Eve and if he did that then he would become a prince. And the only way that that would happen was if there was a big war agents the king and the witches army's. The only problem was that the other kids didn't believe them but them they went into the wardrobe and there was a half man half horse and he told them that the white witch was a bad person and she was the reason that it would always snow there. And every one was under her control.
Evil, This is the theme of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. For example the white witch is a person who has everyone under her control. She made the place named Narnia and she made it snow for all of time. Also there were jail guards for the witch. She would throw people for no apparent reason into the jail and then they would guard them. For example the white witch threw the half man half horse in the jail, and she threw one of the siblings in the jail. Because she had be trade him.
And if you like what I have talked about so far then read more about it in The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. I recommend that you read this book because you get a nice back round on the story from what I have told you about. So I hope you read this book.
