REVIEW OF:  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis

Reviewed by: Jalen

imageIn this book there are six main characters: Aslan, a giant lion; a Witch who wants to rule Narnia; and the siblings Edmund, Peter, Susan, and Lucy. The brothers and sisters are prophesied to be Kings and Queens of Narnia. The children travel through a wardrobe and appear in a snowy place with a lamppost. The White Witch comes and meets Edmund and he betrays his family. The Witch tricks Edmund because if the four of them sit on the four thrones, the Witch cannot be Queen. The other three go on to meet a great lion named Aslan to help them get Edmund back. Will they find their brother?

This novel is one of my favorites because it tells the reader how the children became Kings and Queens.  There are some parts where reading the first book in the Narnia series, The Magician’s Nephew, would be helpful.  I don’t like the way some of the animals treated Edmund.  However, I did like it when Aslan came back to life.

Readers who like stories about characters that travel through many different settings will enjoy this novel.  A lot of the book is a war between good and evil, so the appropriate age is about 10-13.  If you like adventure and magic, this is the book for you!
