Author Bio

Clive Staples Lewis was born in 1898. Known as "Jack" by his friends, Lewis and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of a writer's club, The Inklings, who would meet at the local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewis's fascination with fairytales, myths, and ancient legends coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood led him to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further books in the immensely popular Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, received the Carnegie Award, one of the highest marks of excellence in children's literature.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Pauline Baynes has produced hundreds of wonderful illustrations for the seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia. In 1968 she was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for her outstanding contribution to children's literature.

    I bought this book as a Christmas present for my wife. She has worn out a set of paperback Narnia books by reading them to herself, me , and our kids for the past 20 years. I mean WORN OUT. She wanted to read it to our youngest kids, but they were falling apart. This format is AWESOME for adults to read, and also to read to the kids. This is a sturdy hardcover book that will far outlast the paperback or slipcase books. Also the price is right. This is a prized possession, and I can see her reading it to our kids and Grandkids for the rest of her life.

    One cannot go wrong reading Lewis' most popular "children's story." This volume is set apart by putting the tales in Lewis' preferred order beginning with The Magician's Nephew. Having all the chronicles in one volume is great. I'm glad I made the purchase and intend to read the books again for the tenth time or so.

    It is wonderful to have all the books in one volume. I keep giving away my own copy. I now have two copies and plan on loaning them out and not giving them away. This is a good series to read to children and for adults 21-99+ years young to read.

    I always love reading the Narnia books. C.S Lewis is one of my favorite writers. And I enjoyed the essay "On Three Ways of Writing for Children."

Q: Would this be ok to give to a child age 11? I was just wondering if this book with all the stories in one, would be appropriate to give to a child this young or would it be better to buy the individual books..Are there illustrations in this book?

A:

Yes - this does have illustrations. As far as an 11 year old, generally it depends on the reading level, but I would think that this is a perfect age for this book.
