The New York Times called this popular fantasy deeply moving and hauntingly lovely. First in a seven-part series, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the tale of three children who wander into the Land of Narnia through an enchanted closet.
From the Back Cover
They open a door and enter a world Narnia ... a land frozen in eternal winter ... a country waiting to be set free. Four adventurers step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia -- a land enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change ... and a great sacrifice.
