Bark Blurb:

Narnia . . . a land frozen in eternal winter . . . a country waiting to be set free

Four adventurers step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.

Our Take

Narnia will always hold a special place in the hearts of fans who read them as children.  These wonderful tales are perfect for young readers, while still maintaining surprising complexity through the engrained religious symbolism. Are they enthralling reading for adults? Maybe, but they would definitely make an amazing gift for a young family member who you want to introduce to the world of Fantasy reading.
