The Chronicles of Narnia :
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
The book starts in a house with four children and a mother. Outside there was a war going on, bombs were being dropped and gunfire could be heard. There was commotion in the house as a bomb had dropped near by. The mother realised that it was not safe for the children anymore. So she sent them to their professor’s house. The children peter, Lucy, Susan and Edmund. The professor was rather quiet, but sweet. It was a big mansion that they were living in. one day the children decided to play a game of hide and seek. Lucy was wandering about in the house trying to find a place to hide, when she stumbled upon a room with a wardrobe inside it. She opened the wardrobe it was rather large. She stepped into it putting her arms out in front of her so she would not bump into the woodwork at the back of the wardrobe. Then she felt something getting crushed by her feet. She bent down it was soft, powdery and extremely cold. She got up and something prickly was at her nose, not a coat but a tree branch. In another minute she was standing between a wood in night time. She could se a light not so close by. She started walking towards it until she saw that it was a lamppost. She was standing and gazing at the lamppost when she heard patter of footsteps which sounded like hooves.
It was mr.tummnus the faun. He invited Lucy for tea in his cottage. He told her that she was in the land of Narnia. He told her about the white witch and how she had proclaimed herself the queen of Narnia and cast a spell over the land so it would remain winter throughout the year. He also told her about Aslan the lion who was the original ruler of Narnia. Meanwhile Edmund had also found the wardrobe. He too stepped inside but was not greeted by Mr.tummnus but by a sleigh getting pulled by reindeer. It was the white witch. At first she thought that Edmund was some kind of overgrown dwarf who had his beard cut off. But she soon realised that Edmund was a human who knew nothing about Narnia or herself. Edmund was scared and clueless about where he was or who the lady in the sleigh was. The white witch soon realised who Edmund was. She offered Edmund a hot drink and some Turkish delight. Edmund gladly took it not realising that the Turkish delight was magical and whoever took a bite would always want more. The white witch told Edmund to bring his brother and sister back with him if he wanted more Turkish delight. She told him to keep it a secret and surprise them by bringing them to her house.

She told Edmund that the other animals might say bad things about her but she assured them it was not real and went away. By that time Lucy found Edmund and told him all about Mr. Tummnus and how he told her that the white witch was evil. Then they went back where Susan and peter were still looking for them. They told them all about Narnia, at first they never believed it but soon they saw for themselves. Lucy led them straight to Mr.Tummnus house, but the whole house was ransacked. In the house there was a note saying that the faun had been arrested for treason against the queen. After much searching they located aslant the true ruler of Narnia. After they had assembled an army they went to war with the white witch. They ultimately defeated the white witch and Narnia was again a pleasant and peaceful place. After the war the children were hailed kings and queens of Narnia and they went back to England.
