Children's Book Review Tuesdays: The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis

Book Title: The Magician's Nephew

Author:  C.S. Lewis

Illustrations by: Pauline Baynes

Publish Date: March 5, 2012 (Original Publishing Year: 1955)

Why I Read this Book: I want to get into the wonderful world that C.S. Lewis creates.  I am reading through the Chronicles of Narnia chronologically.






I did not fully enjoy this book at first.  The plot was not well developed in the first 3/4 of the book.  The end of the book was wonderful and I finally understood the plot.  I enjoyed the world building aspects that the end of the book had.  I also enjoyed the introduction to the next book that was at the end of this book.  I enjoyed the illustrations that were in this version of the book.  I believe that it enhanced the book and made it more enjoyable for children.  I also really love this cover! I want to continue reading the series, but I hope the rest of the series is better than this book.
