The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis was my introduction to fantasy fiction and was soon followed by Tolkien's The Hobbit - both courtesy of readings by Mr. Chadderton, my school teacher in class J4 in 1981.
The cover images below are taken from the Fontana Lions paperback editions first published in 1980 - both individually and as a slipcased set.
Opinions on the preferred reading order for the series vary, so three options are presented below.

By Date of Composition By Date of Publication By In-Universe Chronology
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe The Magician's Nephew
Prince Caspian Prince Caspian The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader The Voyage of the Dawn Treader The Horse and His Boy
The Horse and His Boy The Silver Chair Prince Caspian
The Silver Chair The Horse and His Boy The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Last Battle The Magician's Nephew The Silver Chair
The Magician's Nephew The Last Battle The Last Battle
