Series: Chronicles of Narnia
A mass-market paperback edition of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, book two in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. This edition features black-and-white illustrations by the original illustrator, Pauline Baynes, and eight pages of stills from the epic motion picture.
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.
Step through the wardrobe and into The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been enchanting readers of all ages for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you want to return to Narnia, read 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.
nymomNew York, NYAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5highly recommend this little book...November 10, 2010nymomNew York, NYAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Of 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
Heidi Jordan4 Stars Out Of 5August 22, 2009Heidi JordanThis is a simpler version for young children that seems to stay true to the meaning and intent of C.S. Lewis. My 4 year-old daughter loved it and she loved the illustrations.
Mrs. Terry LaFrance1 Stars Out Of 5July 8, 2009Mrs. Terry LaFranceBefore 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.
