Four children move to a large country house and discover a magic wardrobe that takes them to the magical land of Narnia. While there, they try to help Aslan, a giant lion, to defeat the White Witch who has made it forever winter but never Christmas.
Call me the anti-teacher, but I didn't really care for this book. It is beloved by many, and for lots of kids, it's their first step into fantasy fiction. Unfortunately, I felt that it was poorly written with unrealistic dialogue. The biggest disappointment to me, though, was what I considered a "cheat" by the author. I won't give it away, because it is a major part of the book. But I will just say, I don't appreciate my emotions being toyed with for no "real" reason. (If you are interested in what so irritated me, write me an email or a private message.) Other than that, it is a good enough book. However, I do feel that this may be the weakest of the Narnia books. Ironically, it is also the most famous!
