This is a story about something that happened long ago when your grandfather was a child. (from the first line)
When Digory and Polly are tricked by Digory's peculiar Uncle Andrew into becoming part of an experiment, they set off on the adventure of a lifetime. What happens to the children when they touch Uncle Andrew's magic rings is far beyond anything even the old magician could have imagined. Hurtled into the Wood between the Worlds, the children soon find that they can enter many worlds through mysterious pools there. In one world they encounter the evil Queen Jadis, who wreaks havoc in the streets of London when she is accidentally brought back with them. When they finally manage to pull her out of London, unintentionally taking along Uncle Andrew and a coachman with his horse, they find themselves in what will come to be known as the land of Narnia. In the first book of The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis shows us how it all began -- the glorious birth of Narnia at the hand of its unforgettable King. It is followed by six more books that collectively tell the history of a world that has become as real as our own.
From the Publisher:

Annotation:
Although this classic children's fantasy was originally published as the sixth installment of the Chronicles of Narnia, it actually takes place earliest in the sequence. Set at the turn of the 20th century, it features Digory Kirke, the elderly owner of the magic wardrobe so critical to THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, as a boy. Using rings crafted by Digory's Uncle Andrew, an unscrupulous and not terribly skilled magician, Digory and his friend Polly travel to various other worlds, where Digory rashly awakens a sinister, overbearing witch-queen locked in magical slumber, and inadvertently transports her to London and then to Narnia at the moment of its creation.
Author Bio
C. S. Lewis
Clive Staples Lewis was educated in England, attending Oxford in 1917. World War I interrupted his studies and Lewis served in the trenches for two years. In 1919 he returned to Oxford, where he remained until 1954. An atheist, Lewis converted to Christianity in 1929, and spent his life pursuing many interests: his acclaimed Narnia books and a trilogy of space travel novels; books concerning religion; and an academic career in medieval and renaissance literature. In 1955, Lewis moved on to Magdalen College, Cambridge University; in 1956 he married Joy Davidman Gresham, who died in 1960. Lewis survived her by three years.
