Review by James, 12-Years-Old
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is my favorite book. In the story, four children named Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter find a magic wardrobe that takes them to a magical world called Narnia.
While they are in Narnia they meet lots of interesting characters such as Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, Mr. Tumnus, Aslan, (the Lion King) and The White Witch.
The White Witch is very evil and wants to rule Narnia. She captures Edmund and makes him her slave. As the other children search for Edmund they get help from the beavers and Aslan. Aslan speaks to the White Witch. In exchange, for Edmund, Aslan must surrender to the witch. She kills Aslan and the children have to save Narnia without the help of Aslan. But, don't be too sad Aslan comes to life again in the story.
I love that there are interesting characters that are talking animals in the story. One interesting character I like is Mr. Tumnus, who is half goat half man that is captures by the witch. My favorite character is Aslan, who is a lion and is the king of Narnia.
The book teaches how to be good friends with other people and how siblings should be close and help one another. I think that main message that the author is trying to share is that good always overcomes bad. I loved the part where the brothers fight against the white witch because it the fight between good and evil. I learned to help others in difficult situations when they are in need just like the children helped Aslan.
I recommend this book to people who like to read suspenseful stories. I also recommend watching the movie about Narnia after reading a book. Children that are 9-years-old and older and their parents will love this book.
