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.

Meet the creatures of Narnia in this fully illustrated storybook. Parents and younger children can relive the excitement of the fantastic feature film by reading about their favourite Narnian creatures. Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are sent to live with their reclusive uncle in his mysterious country home. Lucy soon discovers a wardrobe that hides a doorway into the magical world of Narnia. Narnia was once a peaceful land of talking beasts, dwarfs, giants, and fauns. But an evil spell is cast on Narnia and it is now ruled by the White Witch, who has transformed it into a frozen place, where it is "always winter, but never Christmas." To the creatures of Narnia, the children now represent hope. Led by the powerful lion Aslan, the children must defeat the White Witch and free all of Narnia from her icy spell.
