What can one say about this book - it's one of the best ever!
As both an author and reader of fiction, I was impressed with The lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Maybe it is because I have always enjoyed a book that could hold my attention and make me think at the same time. In a nutshell, the characters are believable and yet a little out of the ordinary and the story line interesting. Give this book a try.

Lion,Witch and Wardrobe book (for young children)
A must-have for all Lewis fans. The art work alone is worth the price of the book! Perfect for any age but a great way to introduce younger children to the world of Narnia!
Four children, Lucy, Edmund, Suan and Peter are sent to live in the countryside home of an eccentric english professor during the Blitz of 1940. One rainy afternoon, Lucy hides in an old wardrobe an enters the magical land of Narnia.
This is the first of the Narnian chronicles written (although in the internal chronology of the series it is the second), and is slightly different in tone and internal consistency from the other books. The (much talked about) Christian allegory is most overt in this book- , but when I first read this as a young teen, I barely noticed. It's just a lot of fun: talking animals, evil witches, battles and adventures. It's not the best in the series, but it is a wonderful book, and a milestone in children's literature.
