They open a door and enter a world
NARNIA...the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy...the place where the adventure begins. Lucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor's mysterious old house. At first, no one believes her when she tells of her adventures in the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund and then Peter and Susan discover the Magic and meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. In the blink of an eye, their lives are changed forever.

Why did I add it to my bookshelf? 

I won this book in a blog giveaway a few years ago @ I had watched the movie already and had every intention of reading the book but never did. I remember how thrilled I was to win a copy of C.S. Lewis Lion Witch and Wardrobe.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book? Would you recommend it to others?


  1. I read this when I was about 8 or 9 and it was one of my childhood favourites. I'm not sure what I would think of it now as I don't really read kids books! Some kids books are just as fun when you read them as an adult and others don't work so it could go either way I guess!

  2. I think that I have owned this book several times over the years but have never read it. It has always been one of those books that I want to read but put off for another time. I hope you enjoy it, Jackie!

  3. I read this as a child and loved it and the other books in the series. I hope you like it when you read it!

  4. I loved this book and thought the movie was so-so. So cool that you won a copy.

  5. I haven't read the book, but did see the movie. I usually find that if I see the movie first, I get lazy with reading the book. I hope it's one that you would enjoy if you do read it.


Thanks for visiting.
