Item description for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Narnia) by Tudor Humphries C. S. Lewis...
Narnia: a world made by magic from the start of time, full of marvelous creatures, talking beasts, and trees that sometimes get up and dance.
And now the door to this magical world is opened to much younger children, with an exciting retelling specially created to introduce C. S. Lewis's enchanting land. Join Peter, Susan, Edmund, and the adventurous Lucy as they step through the wardrobe and meet the noble lion, Aslan, the fearsome White Witch, and of course the lovable Mr. Tumnus.
The inspiration for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe first came to C. S. Lewis when he was sixteen. The book began with a picture in his head of a faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. He waited until he was nearly fifty before writing the story and followed this with six other Chronicles of Narnia. the lion, the witch and the wardrobe has become one of the finest classics in children's literature, and with this superbly illustrated retelling, younger children can now step into the magic of Narnia.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Narnia)?
A Page Turner. Will make all ages delighted. Apr 4, 2008
It's been years since I was assigned this book for a book report. I didn't read it but I did pass the test. Four and a half years now, I decided to read this book. I did know what to expect, but I didn't care. This book was a page-turner. It took me two nights to read this. Combined to about four hours. I enjoyed this book.
Lucy, Susan, Edmund, and Peter are moving into a professor's home during the war because of air raids. During a time of explorer, Lucy discovered a world in a wardrobe called Narnia. At first, her siblings thought they were just foolish lies. Soon, they will figure out how foolish they were to not believe and how this will be one heck of an adventure in Narnia. Unicorns, fauns, battles, an evil witch, Aslan the lion..
The rating for this book is 4/5 for a reason. This being that I disliked how C.S. Lewis gave us very long and pointless descriptions and often renamed every single creature in the world of Narnia. I constantly had to skip through those just to continue my story. Some might find it better for you to read this, but I didn't.
Overall, I think you will find this book very pleasing to read. It's a warm and freezing cold story to read. You will laugh, cry, or even fear for what's to come next for the kids.
All Ages Can Appreciate This Book! Mar 31, 2008
Mr. Lewis' whimsical style creates a fast paced, fast read fairy tale. Woven throughout the book are Christian themes, however, I believe you can still thoroughly enjoy this book even if you are not a Christian. I believe it can be enjoyed by all ages and would be a wonderful book to read to young children. I look forward to reading the rest of the Chronicles of Narnia series.
The story is about four siblings that are sent away from London during the Nazi Germany bombing campaigns during WWII. They go to live with a professor at his large and strange house in the country. During a rainy day it is discovered that a wardrobe in an empty room leads to the new and strange land of Narnia. The four siblings then go on the adventure of their lives.
I'm a 35 years old male and I don't know why, but I had never read any of The Chronicles of Narnia books by Mr. C.S. Lewis. After reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe what a shame it has been to not have read them before. My wife and I saw a trailer for the upcoming `Chronicles' movie by Disney, Prince Caspian. We both thought it looked interesting and decided we should watch the first movie being The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe before seeing Prince Caspian. After reading some of the reviews of the book I decided it would be worth the time to actually read each of the books before seeing the corresponding movie which brings me to the place of reading The Lion... this weekend. Books are almost always better than their corresponding movies and I think it's important, if possible, to read the books first so your imagination can take over and you are not placing the faces and voices of the movie characters into the reading realm. I highly recommend this book and will be reading the rest Mr. Lewis' Chronicles series.
Well worth revisiting Dec 26, 2007
Although I read the story as a child, I recently listened to the audio book during my commute to work. The reader does a fantastic job creating a distinct voice for each character and I thoroughly enjoyed the story all over again. I recommend that anyone who read the story as a child, revisit it again with this fun audio version.
What can one say about this book - it's one of the best ever! Dec 8, 2007
As both an author and reader of fiction, I was impressed with The lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Maybe it is because I have always enjoyed a book that could hold my attention and make me think at the same time. In a nutshell, the characters are believable and yet a little out of the ordinary and the story line interesting. Give this book a try. Tommy Taylor Author - The Second Virgin Birth
Lion,Witch and Wardrobe book (for young children) Oct 18, 2007
A must-have for all Lewis fans. The art work alone is worth the price of the book! Perfect for any age but a great way to introduce younger children to the world of Narnia!
