The Chronicles of Narnia: Book Report

Digory and Polly were good friends. They both lived in England for all of
their lives. One day they were playing when Polly wanted to show Digory her
secret place. It was up in her attic. She hid many things there. She hid
fruits and snacks to eat and a lot of other stuff to.

     Digory noticed a door across the attic. Back then the houses were
connected together and they thought that if they would cross the rafters and
open the door they could sneak into a house and the next and so on. The reason
for all of this was that one of the houses down a ways was abandon.

     So they started off, one rafter at a time. They had to remain extremely
silent for if someone would here them they would think it was a robber. They
opened the door and began the next house. After a while they came to the one
that they thought was abandoned, but after they opened the door and saw all the
books they knew that they were wrong.

     They were in the forbidden study. That was uncle Andrews private room.
It seemed as if no one was in the room, so they decided to look around. Polly
noticed that there were several different types of rings on the table.

     Suddenly Digory saw someone stand up from the chair, it was uncle Andrew.
He told Polly not to touch the rings, but it was to late. She disappeared into
the air. Digory was confused. He wondered what the rings did. Did Polly just
disappear or did she go to some distant land? Uncle Andrew explained how that
one ring would take you to this land and that the other one would bring you back.
Uncle Andrew was not sure that it worked yet because the only things that
entered before were guinea pigs.

     Digory put two rings in each pocket with gloves(so he would not
disappear). Two were for Polly and two for him. He put the disappear ring and
felt funny as he went speedy to the new land. It felt as if he was swimming.
He swam upward to see where the water went. He came out of the water and saw a
beautiful forest. He noticed guinea pigs and far away a girl leaning against a
tree.

     They noticed that there were many other puddles of water like the ones
they came out of all over the woods. They were going to explore the other
puddles, but wanted to make sure they could get back first. They went over onto
puddle, but it was shallow. They realized that they did not put the home rings
on. So they put them on at the same time and felt the water rushing along them.
Digory shouted switch and they put the home rings in their pocket and switched.

     When they got up they remembered that they all were so identical that if
they would go down another one they would get lost. That is when they decided
to mark their spot. Then they found a puddle to leap into. They put their
rings on and began their journey. This time it was different, so many abandoned
buildings and things like that.

     They decided to go into one of them and went into...
