A beautiful paperback edition of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, book two in the classic fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia. This edition features cover art by three-time Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator David Wiesner and interior black-and-white illustrations by the series' original illustrator, Pauline Baynes.
Four adventurous siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie—step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.
Open the door and enter a new world! The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been captivating readers of all ages with a magical land and unforgettable characters for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone read, but if you would like to discover more about Narnia, pick up The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.
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.

Kathy5 Stars Out Of 5Through the Wardrobe and Into the Land of NarniaJanuary 25, 2013KathyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is the first book C.S. Lewis wrote in the Chronicles of Narnia series in the early 1950's. The story is of the four Pevensie children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. The children are sent into the country during the bombing raids on London in World War II. The children arrive at the estate of the eccentric Professor Kirke. On a rainy day with nothing to do the children decide to play a game of hide and seek. As the children are hiding Lucy stumbles upon a room whose only contents are a blueglass bottle and and old wardrobe. Lucy chooses the wardrobe for a hiding place however as she manuevers through it she is magically transported to the land of Narnia, where it is always winter but never Christmas. In Narnia she meets the faun, Mr. Tumnus who tells her of the White Witches magical enchantment over Narnia and of the prophecy of Cair Parivel/Aslan's return which will bring the reign of the White Witch to its end. This is as far as I am going to go in giving away the plot of the book. This book is Number 2 in the series the Chronicles of Narnia. I would suggest when reading the books to read them in the order which Lewis wrote them. This story will delight both young and old alike. It is a classic to read over and over again with your family.
Leslie5 Stars Out Of 5January 16, 2006LeslieThis book is fabulous. What I found is, to make it a better read, constantly compare Aslan to Jesus. It makes the story really come to life.
