Four children named Peter , Susan , Edmund , and Lucy go to the country to live in the large, mysterious house of an old Professor during the London air raids. One rainy day, the children take the opportunity to explore the house, peeking into spare bedrooms and old passageways, until Lucy, the youngest, pauses to look into a large wardrobe sitting in an empty room. She crawls past the long fur coats and finds herself standing in the middle of a forest. It is night, and snow is falling, though in London it is summer. She walks toward an iron lamp-post and, thinking it is strange to come to a lamp-post in the middle of a wood, is met by a very surprised faun. This faun, confirming that Lucy is a human girl, or a "Daughter of Eve", invites her for tea, snacks, stories, and music in his cozy little cave. She trusts the faun and follows him, staying with him for what seems like many hours.
The children explore the house on a rainy day and Lucy, the youngest, finds an enormous wardrobe. Lucy steps inside and finds herself in a strange, snowy wood. Lucy encounters the Faun Tumnus, who is surprised to meet a human girl. Tumnus tells Lucy that she has entered Narnia, a different world. Tumnus invites Lucy to tea, and she accepts. Lucy and Tumnus have a wonderful tea, but the faun bursts into tears and confesses that he is a servant of the evil White Witch.
