Whether taking a trip down memory lane, back to the days when you were first captivated by Aslan, Cair Paravel and the White Witch, or introducing the wonders of Narnia to the latest generation, The Complete Chronicles of Narnia is the most enchanting way to retrace the magical journey that begins just behind the wardrobe. --Susan HarrisonReview:
“The magic of C S Lewis’s parallel universe never fades.”
“When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness.”
C S Lewis
