“There are ghosts in London and only kids can see them, so they form groups to fight the ghosts.  It is really neat how kids take it upon themselves to protect everyone, because they are the only ones that can see ghosts.”

“What I liked about this book was how the characters figured out the mystery behind the wardrobe.  I liked when Narnia is made and when they fought the evil sorceress”
