The sixth book published in the Narnia series, this book is written largely from the point of view of Digory Kirke and his friend Polly Plummer, and describes the initial creation of Narnia, including the arrival of Jadis. This is the second of only two books that does not in some way involve the Pevensie children. Being the creation of Narnia, chronologically it precedes all the other books in the series; however, it assumes so much initial knowledge about the land of Narnia that it is best read after The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. While its prime audience is children aged 8 to about 11, the story has enough depth to make it a satisfying, if short, read for even adult readers, and the characters show realistic development over the course of the book.
