Description

Don't miss one of America's top 100 most-loved novels, selected by PBS's The Great American Read.

A full-color paperback edition of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, book two in the classic fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia. This edition is complete with full-color cover and interior art by the original illustrator, Pauline Baynes.

Four adventurous siblings--Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie--step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone read, but if you would like to explore more of the Narnian realm, pick up The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. His major contributions to literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include the Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, The Four Loves, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
Pauline Baynes (1922-2008) drew the original lineillustrations for J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of theRings and C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch and theWardrobe. Her portrayals of Middle-earth and Narniahelped transform the books into towering classics which, in2000, were voted Book of the Millennium and Children's Bookof the Millennium respectively by the Library Associationin Great Britain. A Kate Greenaway Medal-winner for theDictionary of Chivalry, she also illustrated ThePuffin Book of Nursery Rhymes.

Reviews

"This story--book two in Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia series--combines the mystical and the adventurous, and if your...kid hasn't yet picked it up (or has only seen the movie), now's the time."--Brightly
