Review
/* Starred Review */ To all who have followed the adventures in C. S. Lewis' marvelous land of Narnia, is a treat as it goes back to "grandfather's day" and tells how first contacts with were made. In London there was Digory a boy who lived with a wicked uncle, and , the friend with whom he goes exploring. At first their adventures bring near disaster for mad Uncle Andrew uses magic powers inherited from his grandmother to send Polly off to the Woods Between the Worlds. There Digory follows her and the two children meet Jadis, a which who accompanies them back to reality. In turn Jadis brings with her a peck of trouble for everyone concerned- including Uncle Andrew- until a chance fall into a pit transfers them all to Narnia, the singing land of Aslan the Lion, whose intelligence and love vanquishes all evil. Couched in Lewis' silvered prose, this is rich reading. (Kirkus Reviews, September 1, 1955)
