Discovered this as an adult. I can't think how many times I've reread it over the past 40 years!

This is now one of my favorite books. This was an OUTSTANDING fantasy series by C.S. Lewis. The imagery that he used to describe Narnia was breathtaking, the battle scenes were described in vivid detail, and you could really connect with the characters. Forget the Harry Potter series! Pick up the Chronicles of Narnia if you want a story full of adventure, wonder, and humor.
