Perfect introduction to Narnia for a young child
on 8 March 2002
I have just finished reading this book with my 6 year old son and it was as much a thrill for him as it was for me (having read it first more than 20 years ago!). This version was a perfect introduction to the wonder of Narnia because of the brilliant illustrations and easy text. It was pure a delight watching his face light up as he looked at the picture of Aslan flying through the air (with Susan and Lucy on his back) after coming back to life. After reading the book, we also watched the BBC video version of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - and this is now his favourite video even ahead of Shrek and Cats & Dogs!
