This was one of my favorite Narnia books to read. That was because it was the beginning of everything. If read in chronological order, Magician’s Nephew would be the first. However, going by publication date especially if new to the series, you wonder a lot more and about the magic.
The secret passage to the house next door leads to a fascinating adventure
NARNIA…where the woods are thick and cold, where Talking Beasts are called to life…a new world where the adventure begins.
Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory’s Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to…somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion’s song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis before they finally return home.Goodreads
This was an incredible book to read about. Learning about the first humans and the creation of Narnia was incredible. You got to learn about things you were always wondering about. As in- how did that lamp post get there or the wardrobe, etc…..Like some other Narnia books, you were introduced to new characters- only some of them were new to me like Polly and Digory. Polly and Digory were the first characters in Narnia. You learn about how Aslan created the world and how the White Witch entered.
