Series: Chronicles of Narnia #6
Publisher: The Bodley Head
Released: May 2, 1955
NARNIA…where the woods are thick and cold, where Talking Beasts are called to life…a new world where the adventure begins.
Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory’s Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to…somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion’s song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis before they finally return home.
The chronological beginning of the Narnia-series, this story tells of how Narnia came to be. Having read the other books, it’s quite fun reading about how it all started. This is a quick, cheerful, feel-good read. I quite enjoyed it, more so than a few of the other Narnia-books.
