    Great book for adults and children alike. The symbolism was very subtle. The lion is a substitute for the little boy. What does this remind you of?

    I enjoyed this book. I liked The Magicians Nephew more but this carried the same fairy tale adventure feeling as the last. Light hearted and easy to follow.

    I loved this book the very first time I heard it at a young age. Many years later I still love it and the whole series. The narrator is awesome!
