A new edition of C.S. Lewis’s defining seven-volume Narnia fantasy packaged specifically for adults. Complete with “P.S.” sections of history, notes and sample chapters from other titles, this complete boxed set complements the author’s non-fiction books and anticipates the forthcoming Narnia feature films.
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.
In December 2005, Andrew (Shrek) Adamson’s live-action film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is released by Disney, and it is already being hailed as the biggest film series 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.

Children across the globe have bathed in the glow of C S Lewis's land of Narnia since the 1950s when the seven books that make up The Chronicles of Narnia were first published. Now, as new generations look to that magical and fantastical land for pleasure and escape, the seven Chronicles are presented together for the first time in one magnificent volume, The Complete Chronicles of Narnia.
With the original, traditional, black-and-white illustrations delicately and impeccably restored in glorious colour by Pauline Baynes, this beautiful book makes for a stunning addition to any bookshelf. 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:
