I just finished the first book of the Chronicles of Narnia, The Magician’s Nephew. Most people think that the first book in the series is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but the author wanted this book to be the first.
Digory and Polly are friends. One day Polly shows Digory a room she plays in in her attic. They find a small tunnel that runs through all of the houses on the street, so they want to go to the empty house, the one next to Digory’s. They walk until they think that they are at the attic of the empty house, but really it’s the attic of Digory’s house. His uncle has been doing tests up there, so he offers Polly a ring that he made. He tells her not to touch it, but she doesn’t listen, and when she touches one, she vanishes. Uncle Andrew explains that the ring Polly put on, the yellow one, was a magic ring, and that it took her to another world. He said that the green rings will let her come back, so he sent Digory out to find her. After Digory finds Polly, the pair set out to explore other worlds. Along the way, they meet two creatures: the lion, Aslan, and the witch, Jadis. What will Polly and Digory find? Another world? Many other worlds? Find out in The Magician’s Nephew. =-D
