A 4-CD unabridged audiobook of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, book two in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Narrated by renowned actor Michael York, you can also put the CDs in your computer to view a gallery of classic full-color illustrations by the original illustrator of Narnia, Pauline Baynes.
Four adventurous siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie— step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.
Open the door and enter a new world with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has captivated readers of all ages for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you want to return to Narnia, read The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
“The whole air of the story is rich and strange and coherent; there is something of Hans Andersen’s power to move and George MacDonald’s power to create strange worlds, and it is, naturally, beautifully written.”
