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.

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?
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.
