Series: Chronicles of Narnia
A mass-market paperback edition of The Magician's Nephew, book one in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia, featuring cover art by Cliff Nielsen and black-and-white interior artwork by the original illustrator of Narnia, Pauline Baynes.
On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But then the lion Aslan's song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a land that will be known as Narnia. And in Narnia, all things are possible.
The adventure begins in The Magician's Nephew, the first title in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has captivated readers of all ages for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you want to encounter more of the wonders of Narnia, read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
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.

Leslie5 Stars Out Of 5January 16, 2006LeslieThis is my favorite book in the Chronicles of Narnia series. The story of creation told in a way that many can easily understand.
Polly5 Stars Out Of 5October 6, 2005PollyNot quite as much action in it as the other Narnia books, but i still love it!!! But then, how can you NOT love Narnia!! I highly recommend this book!!!!
Allen W. Jerkins5 Stars Out Of 5March 21, 2004Allen W. JerkinsAmazingly, I did not begin reading The Chronicles Of Narnia until ten years following my conversion at age nineteen. I count THE GREAT DIVORCE, MERE CHRISTIANITY, and THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS among my most favored books, and my wife purchased this book for me as an anniversary gift with the idea to buy successive volumes in the series on following anniversaries.I was completely entranced by Narnia, particularly the great lion king Aslan. I read it extremely rapidly and was disappointed when it was through. Very pithy and witty, as is customary for C.S. Lewis; he aroused my hunger to experience heaven. I eagerly anticipate reading the rest of the series.
