Beautiful volumes-only complaint is, as others have said, the numbering of the books should have been left alone, as Lewis intended originally and not been grouped chronologically. It is like altering the Mona Lisa's smile.....you can't improve upon it.
It is unfortunate that someone erroneously decided that the Chronicles should be published in chronological order instead of the original order. When read out of order they lose continuity. Please return to the original order as Mr. Lewis wrote them.
We loved the Disney movie The Lion, The Witch and the Wordrobe. We decided to give the books a try. So far we love the slipcase. It helps us to keep the books organized. The prices of the books are very reasonable. We enjoy the colored covers of the books as it enhances our imagination. My 7 year old daughter said to me, 'Mom, let's take care of them because I want to read these to my kids". Now that really makes the purchase worth every penny!
