The witch and the wardrobe book
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis - review
Four children — Lucy, Peter, Susan and Edmund all enter Narnia — a magical world where animals talk and the White Witch who reigns as Queen makes it always winter and never Christmas. They enter at different times, but from the same place — the old Wardrobe. Lucy enters first and encounters the Faun who is in the pay of the White Witch and tries to kidnap her. Edmund, who enters second, finds the White Witch and thinks she's kind and caring, only to later discover that she is a cruel, evil and untrustworthy woman. Susan and Peter enter together and find Lucy and Edmund. They all meet Mr. Beaver who invites them to lunch at their cottage.
