* FandomBerserkButton: Don't call this the first Narnia book. While the earliest in the series' chronology, it was written second-to-last and the multitudes of {{Call Forward}}s are lost on anyone who starts with it. And it really doesn't help that some editions label it as number one.

** Jadis. Iconic British children's character? [[LastOfHisKind Last surviving member]] of an ancient, decadent species of {{Sufficiently Advanced|Aliens}} HumanAliens? Committed GenocideFromTheInside to prevent a war from ending unfavorably? Visits London and causes a commotion due to her unfamiliarity with Earth? [[Series/DoctorWho Um, hello?]]
** It gets even better when you read ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' and see the Witch using the Fourth Doctor's ''modus operandi'' of charming people with sugary jelly candies.

* MagnumOpus: Considered by some to be the best book in the series. With a [[WorldBuilding vastly expanded multiverse]], creative origin of Narnia and its characters without relying too much on information from the prier books, alluding to alchemy and less traditional tropes in the series, and being a rather great fantasy novel in its own right, it isn't hard to see why.

* CounterpartComparison: Uncle Andrew and [[Series/LostinSpace Dr. Smith]]. Both are mean, uptight old men who suffer massive VillainDecay until they're little more than pathetic bullies.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: When Narnia has first been made, Aslan tells Frank the cabbie that he'll be the king. While Frank is flattered, one of the reasons he refuses the position is because [[HappilyMarried he doesn't want to leave his wife]], who's still in England. Cue Aslan magicking her there, to be Narnia's first queen. Aw!
** [[spoiler: After all those events Uncle Andrew gave up sorcery and became nicer, though he liked to tell the occasional visitor about Jadis.]]



* FridgeBrilliance:
** Why haven't the clothes on the waxworks in the room where Jadis is sleeping rotted away? [[spoiler:Because the Deplorable Word killed all the bacteria to do the rotting!]]
** The entire series is a biblical metaphor for children. Why does Aslan name the Cabbie king? "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth."
