This radio dramatization of Lewis’s second tale in The Chronicles of Narnia is a suspenseful adventure that immediately engages the listener’s imagination. Two elements of the skillfully written radio play, the dialogue and the narration, provide a strong story line and smooth transitions that retain the essence of the original story. Although all characterizations are done well, the actors portraying the four children are particularly expressive and charming. Well-chosen and well-produced sound effects, such as the roaring wind and sleigh bells in the distance, create a rich context that enhances the text.
