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 Mere Christianity, 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 one hundred million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

The stories in these books are wonderful, full of adventure and magic.
This book is second in a series called "The Chronicles of Narnia", which happens to be one of the only children's stories written by C.S. Lewis.
I read these books as a child and now my 12 year old daughter is reading the series for the 3rd time.
I guess this is just what I wanted, since it is a Christmas present for my granddaughter. I'll know the impact (good or bad) when she starts reading it.Published 1 day ago by patton

As a theologian (Ph.D. in Biblical Studies), I'm continually impressed at just how subtle Lewis's theology is in the Chronicles series. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Clint Cozier

Books are extra small, adding that pages are not really white makes it hard to read with quality or forcing your eyes.Published 5 days ago by Pen Name
