Clive Staples Lewis, born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1898, was Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Magdalen College, Oxford, and later was Professor of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University. He wrote many books in his lifetime, but the Chronicles of Narnia are his only works for children. These classic books have been read and cherished by millions of readers since they were first published half a century ago.

Kindergarten-Grade 4. The main question one must ask is why these picture-book renditions of C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe are needed. The stories are adapted, simplified, and boxed on each page, with full-color, double-page spreads done in a painterly, realistic technique. These illustrations are given more importance than the texts, which provide just the bare bones of the plot. However, the pictures, as well executed as they are, nevertheless constrain the imagination. And the narratives pale as introductions to Lewis's exquisite prose and his much greater ability to tell a story with subtlety, symbolism, and nuance. Audio versions of Lewis's originals are far better choices, especially for those unable to take on Lewis's prose so early in their reading careers.?Ruth K. MacDonald, Bay Path College, Longmeadow, MA
