For the first time, an edition of Lewis’s classic fantasy fiction packaged specifically for adults. Complementing the look of the author’s non-fiction books, and anticipating the forthcoming Narnia feature films, this edition contains an exclusive “P.S.” section about the history of the book, plus a sample chapter from its sequel.
In 2003, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was ninth in the BBC’s Big Read, the biggest ever survey among adults of popular fiction. That a ‘children’s book’ should be in the top 10 proved to any doubters that C.S. Lewis’s fantasy stories have the magic to engage even the most hardened adults.
On 9 December 2005, Andrew (Shrek) Adamson’s live-action film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will be released by Disney, and it is already being hailed as the biggest film franchise of all time, guaranteed to appeal to adults and children across the globe. The second film is already in development.
Sporting breathtaking new photographic covers, these new adult editions of the seven Chronicles of Narnia now give everyone an opportunity to experience the adventures in their original form. Re-live your childhood fantasies or discover for the first time what everyone will be talking about by Christmas and savour some of the best-loved stories ever written.

“If there’s a natural successor to LOTR, then it’s Andrew Adamson’s first instalment in The Chronicles of Narnia saga. The long-awaited literary adaptation of C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe will likewise make use of New Zealand’s deep forests, snow-dusted mountains and craggy volcanic cliffs to replicate Narnia’s magical landscape.”
The Narnia Chronicles, first published in 1950, have been and remain some of the most enduringly popular children’s books ever published. The best known, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, has been translated into 29 languages!
