Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures, and epic
battles between good and evil -- what more could any reader ask for
in one book? The book that has it all is The Lion, the Witch
and the Wardrobe, written in 1949 by Clive Staples Lewis. 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
This edition presents all seven books -- unabridged -- in one
impressive volume. The books are presented here according to Lewis'
preferred order, each chapter graced with an illustration by the
original artist, Pauline Baynes. 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.
