Summary (From the publisher):

Children and grown-ups alike will encounter fantastic characters and creatures of every stripe, from crochety old wizards and eccentric sand fairies to evil trolls and mighty dragons - with an occasional demon thrown into the mix. The heros and heroines in these stories need all of their courage, imagination and compassion to face up to the challenges which appear in their paths. When they do so, they are often rewarded with marvelous discoveries that change them forever.

Come along with young Henry as he copes with his first day at wizard school - where he is initiated into a perplexing world of magic. Follow a curious girl named Lucy when she discovers a beautiful but wintry world called Narnia, where good and evil fiercely contend for mastery. Listen to a boy's story about his father's brave battle with a man-eating troll in a small town near the Arctic Circle.
