Here is Miss Melissa’s review of the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis:
Chronicles of Narnia (series)
By C. S. Lewis
J FICTION LEWIS
S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series is the reason I am a lifelong lover of fantasy books. This beloved series is perfect for young fantasy readers who are just getting comfortable reading full-length chapter books. Though the prequel The Magician’s Nephew is often listed as the first book in the series, most fans agree that the best place to start is with The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe,which tells the story of siblings Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie after they are sent to live with a peculiar professor at his country estate during WWII. While investigating the professor’s home, youngest sister Lucy finds a magical wardrobe that transports her to Narnia; a magical realm that’s been struck with an evil witch’s curse. Together the Pevensie children befriend talking animals, mythical creatures, and a great lion named Aslan as they work to break the witch’s curse and bring peace to Narnia. Subsequent books in the series follow the Pevensie children and their friends as they return to Narnia for more adventures.
