Lucy gets the feeling that when one realizes that summer is at hand, Susan felt a delightful musical strain, Peter felt adventurous and brave, while Edmund is full of a mysterious sense of terror. Entering the bewitched lands of Narnia the four friends walk into a enchanted country only accessible to Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter. Lucy is the first to find the mysterious land after stumbling into it behind the professor’s enormous wardrobe in his ancient country house. At first, she is the object of derision from her friends. Soon Susan, Peter, and Edmund enter the magical land and meet its ruler, the Great Lion Aslan, who changes their lives forever.
