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.

It was a bit overwhelming for a 9 year old to receive such a large book. It contains all the chapters. I thought I was ordering each book in a nice sleeve. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Jackie S
