Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures, and epic battles between good and evil -- what more could any reader ask for? The lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, written in 1949 by Clive Staples Lewis, had all this and more. But Lewis did not stop there. Six more books followed, and together they became known as The Chronicles of Narnia.

For the past fifty years, The Chronicles of Narnia have transcended the fantasy genre to become part of the canon of classic literature. Each of the seven books is a masterpiece, drawing the reader into a land where magic meets reality, and the result is a fictional world whose scope has fascinated generations. Now, some of the most noted actors of our times have come together to read these extraordinary works.

This timeless boxed set includes all seven unabridged recordings: The Magician's nephew; The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; The Horse and His Boy; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; and The Last Battle. Deceptively simple and direct, The Chronicles of Narnia continue to captivate fans with adventures, characters, and truths that speak to readers of all ages, even fifty years after they were first published.

Review:

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 Harrison
