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 and is now about to hit the big screen in a new film edition.
With readers including Lynn Redgrave, Alex Jennings, Patrick Stewart, Michael York, Kenneth Branagh, Jeremy Northam and Derek Jacobi, this is a tour de force. The combined talent of these great actors does full justice to this epic and unabridged recording.

“The magic of C S Lewis’s parallel universe never fades.”
“Forget Simba. There’s a new lion in the Magic Kingdom… Long before J.K. Rowling dreamed up Harry Potter, Lewis was busy with his seven book series.”
“Like the ‘Rings’ cycle… the seven Narnia books have a long and loyal following.”
The Herald (U.K.)
“Narnia offers huge scope for a profitable film franchise… fantasy is currently the toast of Hollywood.”
The Guardian (U.K.)
“…a big, live action movie franchise to help spark new merchandising lines and theme-park attractions.”
Los Angeles Times
Clive Staples Lewis, born in 1898, wrote many books for adults but the Narnia stories were his only works for children. The final title, The Last Battle, published in 1956, won the Carnegie Award, the highest mark of excellence in children’s literature.
