"The Magician's Nephew" by C.S. Lewis
The Magician’s Nephew is the prequel to "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." Read the Magician’s Nephew to find out where the wardrobe came from, why the White Witch is angry, and how the land of Narnia began. You will be carried into fantastical worlds that the protagonists, Digory and Polly, discover due to their curiosity and the antics of Digory’s uncle. Conflict arises when an evil queen follows Digory and Polly back into the real world, as well as when a cabby, his wife, horse and Uncle Andrew get into Narnia. Aslan, the beloved lion, plays an important role in the way the plot unravels.
My favorite quote from the book is when Aslan is speaking about Queen Jadis, “…Things always work according to their nature. She has won her heart’s desire; she has unwearying strength and endless days like a goddess. But length of days with an evil heart is only length of misery and already she begins to know it. All get what they want; they do not always like it.”
