A new PB edition of this popular book. This is the best-loved of all the Chronicles of Narnia, the first one ever written, the one that everyone remembers reading. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe introduced readers to the wonders and enchantment of Narnia when it was first published almost fifty years ago. Since then, the hearts and imaginations of millions of readers have been caputured by the story of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, who step through a magic wardrobe into Narnia, once the peaceful land of Talking Beasts, dwarfs, giants and fauns, but now frozen into eternal winter by the evil White Witch. Christian Birmingham's beautiful illustrations, accompanied by a sensitively abridged text, introduce this wonderful story to a younger audience.

Review: The Chronicles of Narnia Unabridged Boxed Set - Audiobook on CD

User Review  - Lauri - Christianbook.com

We have enjoyed this set very much. They are wonderful for long trips in a vehicle. Sometimes I think the voices are a little overdone, particularly when a man is reading a girls voice. They really don't have to be quite that high! But still we find them well done. Read full review

About the author (2002)

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS was born in Belfast in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths and ancient legends recounted to him by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was sixteen. However, it was not until many years later as a professor at Cambridge University, that the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificent lion. Their story became The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, one of the best loved books of all time. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed and the final title, The Last Battle, published in 1956, was awarded the highest mark of excellence in children's literature - the prestigious Carnegie Award.
