Chronicles of Narnia #02: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Synopses & Reviews
An unabridged 4-CD audiobook of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, book two in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia, narrated by renowned actor Michael York.
Four adventurous siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie— step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you would like to explore more of the Narnian realm, read The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
To coincide with the December release of Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media's eagerly anticipated film adaptation of Lewis's classic, HarperChildren's Audio has repackaged this classic recording with full-color art from the movie. Unabridged. 4 CDs.
Open the door and enter a new world.
Narnia...the land beyond the wardrobe door, a secret place frozen in eternal winter... a magical country waiting to be set free.

But soon Edmund, then Peter and Susan step through the wardrobe and find a country under the evil enchantment of the White Witch. They meet the Lion Aslan and realize they've been called to join the battle to free Narnia from the Witch's sinister spell.
Performed by Michael York
The popular unabridged recordings of The Chronicles of Narnia, previously released by HarperChildren's Audio, have now been repackaged with art from the movie.
