Narnia is an alternate universe as real as our own. While exploring the old Professor’s mysterious house, Lucy steps inside a wardrobe and finds herself in another world—a land of strange talking creatures and animals—a land of perpetual winter ruled by a wicked witch. When Lucy’s siblings, Peter, Edmund and Susan eventually follow her through the door they are caught up in a prophecy declaring them to be harbingers of the return of Aslan, the rightful King and creator of Narnia, for whom they are called to fight to free the land. The witch catches wind of the newcomers and tricks Edmund into betraying his siblings for the promise of a princedom—and more of the bewitching candy, “Turkish Delight.” The children escape, Aslan arrives and more adventures and battles ensue. Edmund is rescued—but only temporarily. The White Witch acts on her rightful demand for the blood of all betrayers and Edmund seems doomed.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, has become a Christian classic. With simple yet profound writing, genius insight and British wit, Lewis creates a world of exciting adventure where savage evil seeks to dominate and destroy good—a world whose spiritual principles mirror our own. Who can’t relate to Edmund, the average kid turned betrayer, yet receives a second chance? Through allegory Lewis powerfully relates the Biblical story of redemption. This is probably my all time favorite work of fiction—a must read for kids and adults alike.
