Abstract:

Four English school children find their way through the back of a wardrobe into the magic land of Narnia and assist Aslan, the golden lion, to triumph over the White Witch, who has cursed the land with eternal winter.

Welcome to Narnia, a delightfully magical land where talking animals, fauns, dwarfs, centaurs, and friendly giants llive in peace and harmony. But, because this is a fairy tale, life in Narnia is not all goodness. When four English school children find their way into this mysterious other world, they are struck by a scene of dazzling snow -- cold, silent, and forbidding. for a wicked White Witch has cursed the land with eternal winter. With the arrival of the children, the little creatures come out of hiding -- it is rumored that the golden lion, Aslan, their wise and gracious ruler, is on his way to Narnia. The children's strange and unexpected adventures are climaxed in a glorious and fierce battle in which they aid the lion king in his triumph over the White Witch. - Jacket flap.
