Digory let out a scream. “What's happened to Polly?” “Congratulate me, my dear boy,” said Uncle Andrew, rubbing his hands. “My experiment has succeeded. The little girl's gone – vanished – right out of this world.” When Digory and Polly discover Uncle Andrew's secret workshop, they are tricked into touching some magic rings that take them right out of this world. But even Uncle Andrew doesn't realise the wonders that lie ahead as they discover the gateway to the magical land of Narnia, where many thrilling adventures await them.

I loved this book as a kid, I found it better written, more mysterious and meaningful than The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. So I was really looking forward to share it with my 8-year-old for our goodnight story.

Well... We had to put it down halfway through because he hated it so much. He liked the first parts of it well enough, was caught by the mystery of the terrible uncle, the magic rings, the Wood Between The Worlds, and the ruin world of Charn. But he could not abide the smugness of Aslan, the revering and worshiping descriptions of him (this is too cringe, dad!), and he found the one-dimensional description of the witch as irrationally evil to be so insulting to his intelligence that between that and Aslans smugness, he found himself siding with her.

I'd like to nominate Uncle Andrew for the "most nefarious literary uncles" list. Someone has to keep one of those somewhere, right?

This is honestly one of my favorite Narnia books and always has been. The start of things is almost always one of my favorite parts of any series, and this is the beginning of Narnia. (I will also fight to the death about it being the first book in the series and not "The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe" but that's beside the point.)

Seeing certain characters for the very first time and the very beginnings of how things were before the Pevensies stumble upon the land is always fun, and the audiobook version of this was a delight from beginning to end. It felt like someone was reading me the story again, and that was a lot of fun.
