You thought a wardrobe just holds clothes. Four kids go to a big house to stay to avoid the bombing in their nieghborhood. The kids start to look around. Inside the house they see a wardrobe and think it islocked so they go away. All except for Lucy, the youngest one. To her surprise it was opened.

She walked in the wardrobe, and instead of clothes there was a world . She finds a Faun(a Faun is a person with a goat bottom and a person from waist up). They have tea together. When Lucy comes back she tells the others she has been gone for hours. They think she is crazy. Then she brings them into the wardrobe. What do they find there?

I recommend this book to people who like fantasy books. There once was a time when I did not like books so much. After I read this one I loved books. I loved this one so much I did something I never did before. I read more than 100 pages over the weekend. I am now trying to find the other books in the series.
