Teen Review: “The Magician’s Nephew” by C. S. Lewis

Most everybody knows the story of “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” by C.S. Lewis. Many even believe it is the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia. In actuality, “The Magician’s Nephew” is the story that begins it all. Digory Kirke’s uncle convinces Digory’s friend, Polly, to touch a yellow ring, making her disappear. In an attempt to get her back, Digory goes after her and finds himself with Polly in another realm altogether. They come to the conclusion that the strange wooded area with multiple pools is a place between worlds. Deciding to explore, they jump through a pool finding themselves in a deserted world. Ringing a bell, they awaken a terrible witch. Through a series of events in an attempt to get rid of her, they start the creation of Narnia. The book is the root of a lot of things in the Narnia series, such as the White Witch and the lamp post. It was amazing to read about the creation of such an iconic world.
