The Magician's Nephew

By C.S. Lewis

Narnia…where the woods are thick and cool, where Talking Beasts are called to life…a new world where the adventure begins. Digory and Polly meet and make friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory’s Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to…somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion’s song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

This is the first book in the series...if you go by the chronological order. There is much debate about which way is best to read the seven books in the Chronicles of Narnia, but I'm not even going there. This book was so much fun to read read out loud. I had so much fun reading the dialogue, that is so witty and funny you can't help but laugh. I enjoyed the parallels to Christianity and the overall feel-goodness of the book. I'd never read this one and I heartily enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who enjoys C.S. Lewis, or has loved 'The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe'.
