Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Synopsis: Polly and Digory become friends one day in London. On one of their playing escapades they stumble upon a secret room, Digory's Uncle Andrew's study. His uncle claiming to be a magician sends them to someplace else. They will encounter Aslan's Narnia newly created from his song, the evil witch Jadis before they will finally return home.
My Thoughts: Okay so I LOVED THIS BOOK. Digory and Polly were wonderful together even if they did end up in a fight now or then. Uncle Andrew- you couldn't help but feel sorry for him at times and I love this part:
[Jadis] "Procure for me at once a chariot or a flying carpet or a well-trained dragon, or whatever is usual for royal and noble persons in your land. Then bring me to places where I can get clothes and jewels and slaves fit for my rank. Tomorrow I will begin the conquest of the world".
"I-I-I'll go and order a cab at once", gasped Uncle Andrew
Ha, that whole chapter was hilarious. Can't wait for the next book : The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Excited to begin!
Negative Elements: There is a little violence in the book very very mild but probably best for ages 8 and up.
