Review of the book Chronicles of Narnia

Book one in the trilogy Chronicles of Narnia is the Lion,Witch,and Wardrobe. It was a really fun book. It had an amazing setting and plot. It went at a great pace it didn't go to fast or too slow. I loved how they entered the queen into the book. With her cold and icy costume. They had a lot of imagery that made the book come alive.
