The first book in C. S. Lewis's beloved The Chronicles of Narnia series is now available in a special read-aloud edition perfect for parents and children to share together. With the growing exposure brought to the series by the spectacular Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media film of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, more children will want to discover the origins of the magical realm of Narnia, the Great Lion, Aslan, and the evil White Witch. This large-print, easy-to-read, paper-over-board edition is brought to life with classic black-and-white illustrations by Pauline Baynes.
When Polly vanishes after Uncle Andrew's horrid trick, Digory has no choice but to follow her. Touching the magic rings takes the children into a wood where mysterious pools lead to countless other worlds.
Their adventure opens up the doorway to Narnia -- a new and magical land where animals learn to speak and where trees are able to walk. But Narnia is under threat from the evil Queen, and Digory and Polly have to find the magical fruit that alone can save it.
