Volume 6 -- How Aslan created Narnia and gave the gift of speech to its animals.
"'This is a very important story,' the author explains at the start, 'because it shows how all the comings and goings between our own world and the land of Narnia first began.' Two children, Polly and Digory, live next door to one another in a street of old tall London houses. Exploring on a wet cold afternoon, they discover a little door in an attic which leads to a long dark corridor connecting their two homes. That is how they stumble on to the secret workroom of Digory's scientific uncle. And that is how - for his scientific experiments are of no ordinary kind - they find themselves transported to some of the strangest scenes in the story.
"If you wish to know the answer to this, to be present at the very creation of Narnia, in the enchanted realm of Aslan the Lion, you have only to follow Polly and Digory through the attic door. "
