Fantastic and exciting!

An incredible follow up to C.S. Lewis' classic The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. This one is one of my favorites of the series. It's magical, interesting and exciting while still maintaining Lewis' wonderful, sly voice throughout. There are a few scenes of violence, but nothing too scary.
