A slightly disturbing tale, but a great book over all. Really helps tell how the Narnia world started. ( )
  Bookslesstravelled | Apr 15, 2022 |
The first book in the Chronicles of Narnia follows two children, Diggory and Polly who are mistakenly thrown into a magical world when Diggory's Uncle Andrew tricks Polly into taking up a magic ring.

This is such a wonderful tale that brings us our first encounter with The Witch, Jadis, and Aslan the great Lion of Narnia.

The story also tells of the creation of Narnia and how the humans came to rule it.

Very quick to read, not too scary, and very wonderful with full-color illustrations in this edition.

Listened to this as an audiobook and was done in under 3 hours with it.

**All thoughts and opinions are my own.** ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To the Kilmer family
First words
This is a story about something that happened long ago when your grandfather was a child.
Quotations
A terrible thirst and hunger came over him and a longing to taste that fruit. He put it hastily into his pocket; but there were plenty of others. Could it be wrong to taste one? After all, he thought, the notice on the gate might not have been exactly an order; it might have been only a piece of advice - and who cares about advice?
Now the trouble about trying to make yourself stupider than you really are is that you very often succeed.
For what you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing: it also depends on what sort of person you are.
