Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are sent to stay with a kind professor who lives in the country, they can hardly imagine the extraordinary adventure that awaits them.

It all begins one rainy summer day when the children explore the professor's rambling old house. When they come across a room with an old wardrobe in the corner, Lucy immediately opens the door and gets inside. To her amazement, she suddenly finds herself standing in the clearing of a wood on a winter afternoon, with snowflakes falling through the air. Lucy has found Narnia, a magical land of fauns and centaurs, nymphs and talking animals — and the beautiful but evil White Witch, who has held the country in eternal winter for a hundred years.

This exquisite gift edition brings a fresh look to this timeless classic and is the perfect introduction to all the wonders of Narnia.

Review:

"The world with its talking creatures is entirely believable....The color plates in muted tones, along with inset black and white illustrations throughout the text, make this book a real keepsake." Marilyn Courtot, Children's Literature

Synopsis:

The most beloved book in The Chronicles of Narnia is available for the first time in a full-color unabridged gift edition that includes allthe original artwork by Pauline Baynes. This handsome new edition will make a wonderful family keepsake to read aloud together.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis, was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends recounted to him by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was sixteen. Many years later, the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificient lion. Their story became The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, was awarded the United Kingdom's prestigious Carnegie Award.

Lewis was Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Magdalen College, Oxford, and later was Professor of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, where he remained until his death in 1963. He wrote numerous books of literary criticism and on Christianity, the best-knowing being The Screwtape Letters, as well as four novels for adults. The seven books of The Chronicles of Narnia were his only works for children.
