Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is, in turn, beautiful, frightening, wise.” New York Times
“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.” Guardian (London)
“The only thing better than exploring Narnia with your children is having Michael York do it with you. With his precise, but lively, British accent, he eases listeners into the mysterious world hidden behind the wardrobe. There the suspense and tension mount as Lucy meets Tumnus and Edmund the White Witch. With flawless accuracy York seems to sense the very timbre of the White Witch’s horrible voice and the anguish of the kind faun, Mr. Tumnus…Michael York gives to each an unforgettable vocal characterization that will surely live in our children’s memories as the Grinch or Scrooge lives in ours. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
