After she is tricked by Digory’s uncle into touching a yellow ring, Polly disappears. Digory has no choice but to follow with a different ring, one that will bring her back. The kids end up in a dead land where Digory awakens an evil witch/queen. Later, Polly, Digory, Uncle Andrew, the witch, a horse, and a cabby end up in a completely dark land. Soon Aslan the Lion appears and wakes the magical world called Narnia with his song.
The Magician’s Nephew tells the story of Professor Kirke as a child (Digory) and the beginning of Narnia. It was slightly interesting, but mostly a lot of words and not much actual action. It was just okay.
