This review is by a guest blogger, my sister Lily! -Emma

What’s it about?
Secrets abound in the home of Digory, a young boy living with his aunt and somewhat “odd” uncle. One day he discovers something in his uncle’s secret work shop in the attic, which puts his new friend Polly’s life in danger. In order to save polly, Digory must dive head-first into a another world full of talking animals, dryads, naiads, nymphs, dwarfs, giants and hundreds of other magical creatures. Now, not only must be save Polly, he must also save this whole other world.

Lily’s Thoughts:
-There are seven books in the Chronicles of Narnia series and I love all of them!

Good things:
-All of the books are based on parts of the Bible; The Magician’s Nephew is based on the creation and the fall.

Alerts:
-Digory’s uncle is frequently drunk.
-If you notice any other alerts then please leave a comment! :)
