Written by C.S. Lewis • Illustrated by Pauline Baynes

This is a story of a boy named Digory who meets a girl named Polly. They are then tricked by Digory's evil uncle Andrew to put on rings that make them end up in a world with pools. Each pool leads to a different world. They are then thrown into an adventure of meeting evil queens and talking lions.

My favorite part of this book was the creating of Narnia. There is so much life and happiness being made. There are talking animals and a flying horse. This is my favorite part of the book.

This book is unique and special because the main characters are two children. The book is part of a series that all have talking animals. It is connected because there is a character from the last book in each new one.

As I read this book I had a the feeling that I never wanted to put it down. It made me wonder the whole time what the characters were doing in their world.

I recommend this book to all people who like magic and adventure.
