Over 50 years ago, C. S. Lewis created a land of wonder and enchantment called Narnia. Since then, over 60 million readers have taken their first steps into Narnia, discovering a world of magic and mystery.
When Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are sent to stay with a kind professor who lives in the country, they can hardly imaging the extraordinary adventure that awaits them.
It all begins one rainy summer day when the children explore the professor's rambling old house. When they come across a room with an old wardrobe in the corner, Lucy immediately opens the door and gets inside. To her amazement, she suddenly finds herself standing in the clearing of a wood on a winter afternoon, with snowflakes falling through the air. LUcy has found Narnia, a magical land of fauns and centaurs, nymphs and talking animals - and of the beautiful but evil White Witch, who has held the country in eternal winter for a hundred years.
