The Magician's Nephew (Book 1 of the Chronicles of Narnia) by C.S. Lewis
Summer is a great time to jump into a classic series of books, like the Narnia books, that everyone in the family can enjoy. Description from From Hoopla: "Narnia . . . a land frozen in eternal winter . . . a country waiting to be set free. Witness the creation of a magical land in The Magician's Nephew, the first title in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has captivated readers of all ages for over sixty years. On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But then the lion Aslan's song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a land that will be known as Narnia. And in Narnia, all things are possible. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you want to journey back to Narnia, read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia."
