The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

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

Reviewed by George D. (age 8)

This story is about Peter, Susan, Edmond, and Lucy. These four siblings find a wardrobe which leads to the country of Narnia. There they meet Aslan the talking lion who helps them save Narnia from the white witch. She has put a terrible spell on Narnia which makes it always winter and never Christmas.

I felt sad at the beginning, when several characters died, and I felt happy at the end when Aslan succeeded in his missions. My favorite part was when Edmond drew graffiti on a statue of Aslan in the witch?s courtyard. He drew a moustache and spectacles on the statue. I like this part because most of the story is serious but this part is silly. It made me laugh when I read this part.

How do Peter, Susan, Edmond, and Lucy all become kings and queens of Narnia? Go to your local library so you can find out. This book is like magic!
