A review for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe : One of our 'Must Reads'. C.S Lewis’s classic fantasy book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe tells the story of the four Pevensie children, Lucy, Peter, Edmund, and Susan, and their adventures in the mystical world of Narnia. Sent to the British countryside for their own safety during the blitz of World War II, they discover an entryway into a mystical world through an old wardrobe. Mythical creatures suffering under the rule of the cruel White Witch inhabit Narnia and the arrival of the children gives them hope for liberation. All are dragged into the inevitable conflict between evil and good. Fantastic stuff filled with beautiful symbolism that still captures young hearts today.

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The battle between good and evil is being fought in Narnia - a kingdom where 'it is always winter, never Christmas'. The white Witch and her followers scheme for the destruction of Aslan, the great lion. Into the fray, through the back of the wardrobe in their uncle's house, come four children, 'sons of Adam, daughters of Eve', who each react to the power struggle in their own way. A brilliant, gripping sequence, wonderfully illustrated by Pauline.
