From the Back Cover:

Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures, and epic battles between good and evil – what more could any reader ask for in one book? That book was 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,' written in 1949 by Clive Staples Lewis. But Lewis did not stop there. Six more books followed and together they became known as 'The Chronicles of Narnia.'

For the past fifty years, 'The Chronicles of Narnia' have transcended the fantasy genre to become part of the canon of classic literature. Each of the seven books is a masterpiece, drawing the reader into a world where magic meets reality and the result is a fictional world whose scope has fascinated generations.

This edition presents all seven unabridged books in one impressive volume. The books are presented here according to Lewis' preferred order, each chapter graced with an illustration by the books' original artist, Pauline Baynes. Deceptively simple and direct, 'The Chronicles of Narnia' continue to captivate fans with adventures, characters, and truths that speak to readers of all ages, even fifty years after they were first published.

"Like his fellow genius, Tolkien, C. S. Lewis has redefined the nature of fantasy, adding richness, beauty, and dimension… In our times, every fantasy realm must be measured in comparison with Narnia."

About the Author:

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers 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.

Pauline Bayne’s work on the Chronicles spans almost fifty years.
