Top ten magical worlds

Lindsay Taylor and Suzanne Smith are the authors of the Hattie B, Magical Vet series.

One of their ten favorite fantasy realms, as shared at the Guardian:
Narnia in The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Lewis managed to conjure such vivid imagery of a faraway mythical land, a place where the animals can talk, where the White Witch rules and the formidable Aslan guards the land and leads battles that it is impossible to have anything less than a fantastic vision of Narnia in your mind. If we could choose to travel to any magical world we would choose Narnia every time.
