Lucy walks into a closet without
a back wall and enters Narnia, meets Faun. Edmund, second to enter, turns
traitor for the white witch Sue and John take coats and follows robin to
beaver's home, Aslan. Lion sacrifices his strength for Ed, regains it and
removes stone spell on varied beings in queen's courtyard. Father Christmas
gives children powerful gifts to be used in emergencies. The queen's spell
of constant cold is broken, with spring emerging. After the four rule Narnia,
taking on the lilt of royal accent and language, they are reminded of the
coat rack and return to the same split second they had left so long ago.
This book is about four English
school children who find their way into the back of a magical wardrobe
into the magic land of Narnia. There they assist Alslan, the great golden
lion, to triumph over the evil white witch who has cursed the mystical
land of Narnia into a dreaded never-ending winter without Christmas. As
they walk through the woods, they have to be careful not to be seen by
the witch's followers who are everyone from goatman to trees and birds,
to get to the powerful stone table to get control over Narnia and banish
the white witch "who is not human but part giant" and end the never-ending
winter and bring peace to Narnia once again. But this is easier said than
done. To find out about the children's triumph, read THE LION, THE WITCH
AND THE WARDROBE. You may also want to read the other titles in this series
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. (Travis B., 8th grade student,
Rundlett Middle School, Concord, New Hampshire)
Three children are sent to
live with a family member that they hardly know. There is a war going
on and they are getting all of the children out of the war zone.
While at their uncle's house, they find a magical wardrobe that transports
them to another world. In this other world they are royalty.
There is also a prophecy about the three children and the fate of Narnia.

A world of mystical creatures,
adventure, and triumph lies merely a page turn away. Can you imagine what
you would do if you discovered another world? A world filled with talking
beavers, badgers, and lions; and dreamed up creatures such as centaurs
and fauns. A world where the inanimate becomes animate. A world where the
impossible becomes possible. A world saved by children. The adventure
begins with the existing struggle between good and evil—the famous, all-powerful
Aslan versus the white witch. For four young children (Peter, Susan, Edmond,
and Lucy) this adventure became their unforeseen destiny. They find friends
in these magical creatures and from here the real story begins as they
take on the witch themselves! (Nichole Kuchar, NL-Kuchar@wiu.edu.
