The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe

Author: Lewis, C. S.
At this point, there's very little to be said about Narnia that hasn't been put better already. But I have to justify this list somehow, so I may as well try. The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe has inspired generations of readers and countless adaptations. Lewis remains one of the most influential figures of the last century, and he will continue to be for years to come. It starts when four children step through a wardrobe and into a fantasy world. A world full of talking animals, centaurs, and fauns. Humans are a rarity, and Susan, Edmund, Lucy, and Peter particularly so. They're the children of prophecy, destined to sit on the throne. Throughout the novel, each of the children deals with their own challenges and comes out changed. Lucy struggles to be believed, Edmund with jealousy, Susan with death, and Peter to control his younger siblings. In this intensely Christian story, Lewis tells of a battle between good versus evil, sacrifice, and maturity. The children live out fifteen years in the world, returning the same age, yet forever changed. Read if you like: Christian fiction, mythical creatures, children's fantasy.
