The Magician’s Nephew


The Magician’s Nephew is the first of seven stories in The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. It is the tale about a boy named Digory and his friend Polly who are tricked by his whimsical Uncle Andrew into embarking on a series of magical adventures. They are brought into other worlds where they encounter the selfish Queen Jadis from an enchanted declining land, and the powerful lion Aslan from the newly created Narnia. Can Digory complete the task he’s given by Aslan to ensure the safety of Narnia and the restored health of his dying mother?
