The Land Of NarniaFrom the Back Cover:
C.S. Lewis's seven magical books, 'The Chronicles of Narnia,' are loved by children all over the world. This exciting guide to Narnia explains how their creator, C.S. Lewis, came to write them, what sort of person he was and the hidden meaning of the Narnia stories.
Lucy, Susan, Peter and Edmund in 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' find their way into Narnia through the back of a wardrobe. 'The Land of Narnia' is a gateway into every aspect of C.S. Lewis's imaginative world.
Brian Sibley is a writer and broadcaster with a special interest in fantasy literature and children's books. His fascination with C.S. Lewis began as a child, when he first read 'The Chronicles of Narnia', and subsequently resulted in his working on several Lewis projects. His book, 'Shadowlands: The Story of C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman', was given the prestigious Gold Medallion Book Award. As consultant to the BBC film, 'Shadowlands', Sibley had an opportunity to meet a number of C.S. Lewis's close friends. In 1988 he wrote the much-praised BBC radio serialization of 'The Magician's Nephew' and 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.'
