Exposition: Digory and Polly meet, explore the connected attics, and observe Digory's uncle experimenting with transporting himself to different worlds.

Rising Action: They ring the bell, wake Jadis, she enters into different worlds (namely new Narnia).

Climax: Digory is confronted with Aslan and a temptation from Jadis in order to help his sick mom.

Falling action and resolution: Digory passes the test and is rewarded by Aslan. The cab driver and his wife are made the first king and queen of Narnia, and Digory and Polly are sent back to London.
