Four children — Lucy, Peter, Susan and Edmund all enter Narnia — a magical world where animals talk and the White Witch who reigns as Queen makes it always winter and never Christmas. They enter at different times, but from the same place — the old Wardrobe. Lucy enters first and encounters the Faun who is in the pay of the White Witch and tries to kidnap her. Edmund, who enters second, finds the White Witch and thinks she's kind and caring, only to later discover that she is a cruel, evil and untrustworthy woman. Susan and Peter enter together and find Lucy and Edmund.

Lewis points. I remember at my vast old age in 7th grade sadly concluding that I was too old for the Narnia books now. I had already read them many times. Then I took them up again in college and found new riches. No kid who reads this book will ever look at a closet door the same way again.
