Narnia . . . where Talking Beasts walk . . . where a witch waits . . . where a new world is about to be born.
On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But then the lion Aslan's song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a land that will be known as Narnia. And in Narnia, all things are possible.
The Magician’s Nephew is the first book in C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, a series that has become part of the canon of classic literature, drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over fifty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you would like to journey back to Narnia, read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
Great first iPad book,
I remember reading these as a child... Now I have two of my own and besides Pooh this this the first book without pictures I've read them. The story is still just as enchanting as it was thirty years ago, even better to experience it again through the excitement of my children. Of course now my son (4) tells me to "pause" the book when he needs to get a glass of water... LOL... I now can highlight and use the dictionary to look up words we don't know and search and highlight in an assortment of virtual colors.
Beautifully the story is the same... Now the book just takes batteries. Good or bad. Barns and Noble's days are numbered.
I read this book for a book report and I just couldn't put it down. It was exciting, magical, and entertaining. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes fiction.
This is one of my favorites in the series in that it gives the background of how Narnia came to be, how the professor knew about Narnia in TLTW&TW, n the lamppost. It was wonderful to read this as an adult after loving TLTW&TW as a child.
