The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis is a delightful story that highlights the beginnings of all the comings and goings between Narnia and Earth, in particular how the wardrobe in Professor Kirk's house became a magical portal to begin with.

The first book of Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling will always be one of my favorite works of fiction. (Trailing not far behind The Hobbit.) In it, young Harry Potter, orphaned as a baby and living with his dispicable aunt, uncle, and cousin, discovers with the help of a bumbling but lovable and strangly tall and hairy fellow name Hagrid, that he, Harry, is a wizard! Not only that, but he has been accepted to Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry located in Massachusetts.) But all is not rosy and easy for Harry. He discovers as he begins his studies at Hogwarts, that the evil wizard Voldemort who tried to kill Harry as a baby, is still out there, somewhere biding his time. What will Harry do if he is confronted by Voldemort and Headmaster Dumbledore isn't there to protect Harry? After all, Harry is only 11! Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was first published in 1995.
