Of course this book should not replace the reading of the actual novel, but what a bonus it is to have extra pictures (beautiful ones!) to show my 7 year old, as I read her the full version of the story. and she can read this one to herself, which is wonderful for her. But for me, it really is nice for her to have the larger, color illustrations to look at as I read the original version of the story to her. I am very happy with this purchase & I do recommend it to anyone with a young child getting into the world of Narnia.
and once again, ChristianBook shipped this out super fast at no extra cost. Very pleased with the service of this website
Before you order this book, there is one particular line in this version that you should be aware of. My daughter loves this story, and I cherish teaching her how Aslan symbolizes Jesus, our Savior who died for us. But the author of this particular book chose a disappointing and inaccurate portrayal of the powerful lion. After Edmond has been wounded in battle, and is getting well-deserved praise for destoying the White Witch's wand, Aslan is quoted as saying "Even I might be a statue (if Edmond had not destroyed her wand)." Aslan, as Jesus, is all-powerful and would have never been in any type of danger of falling to the witch, just as Jesus is always and forever victorious over Satan, and never at any point, was in danger of losing this eternal battle. If you're looking for a version of this story true to the gospel after which it was modeled, I'd look for a different book than the one by Hiawyn Oram.
