The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is about four children, named Susan, Lucy, Peter, and Edmund, who come to a professor's house. While they are there Lucy the youngest child finds a magical land behind a wardrobe. Her siblings do not believe her, so she has to prove it. She takes them on a very big adventure through Narnia, the magical land.

The problem is that a witch is after them because she does not like children. Unfortunately she captures one child named Edmund but the others go on an adventure to get him back.

I really liked this book because there were two adventures going on. One was when Edmund go lost in Narnia under a witch's power. The other one was when Peter, Susan, and Lucy were trying to get him back.

My favorite character is Lucy because she's only four or five and is very brave. I also like Lucy because she seems real, like she could be right next to me.

When I was reading this book I felt that I was in the book with them. I felt like I was the only person that existed.

I would recommend this book to someone who likes adventures and fiction books. I think people from third grade through seventh grade should read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and the other Narnia books. They are very exciting.
