From the Back Cover
This peerless guide has served as an adventurer's passport to the land of Narnia for twenty-five years. From Aslan, the Great Lion, to Zardeenah, the mysterious lady of the night, this comprehensive and accessible companion contains hundreds of alphabetically arranged entries covering all the characters, events, places, and themes that Lewis magically wove into his timeless and magical world. We are giving this comprehensive handbook a facelift just in time to be the perfect companion to the Narnia movie coming out in Christmas 2005. We are updating all the references, adding a new foreword in addition to Madeleine L'Engle's original invitation to the book, simplifying the reference system, lowering the price, and creating a new package that will help tie it to the movie. These improvements should help this standby sell for the next twenty-five years.
