“With amazing characters and abundant magic, this series is impossible to forget.” (Brightly.com)
From the Back Cover
Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures, and epic battles between good and evil -- what more could any reader ask for in one book? The book that has it all is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, written in 1949 by Clive Staples Lewis. But Lewis did not stop there. Six more books followed, and together they became known as The Chronicles of Narnia.
For the past fifty years, The Chronicles of Narnia have transcended the fantasy genre to become part of the canon of classic literature. Each of the seven books is a masterpiece, drawing the reader into a land where magic meets reality, and the result is a fictional world whose scope has fascinated generations.
This edition presents all seven books -- unabridged -- in one impressive volume. The books are presented here according to Lewis' preferred order, each chapter graced with an illustration by the original artist, Pauline Baynes. Deceptively simple and direct, The Chronicles of Narnia continue to captivate fans with adventures, characters, and truths that speak to readers of all ages, even fifty years after they were first published.

It was described as being "Used - Good", but it arrived in excellent condition (no noticeable tears on the book itself with only slight page wear). This version came with a book jacket which is identical to the hard cover itself, so I threw away the jacket which was well worn. Also, the book description says "text only", which is strange, because this copy has tons of the original illustrations in full-color (I'll try to post pictures soon).
I feel like I hit the jackpot with this purchase and I highly encourage everyone to get this copy ASAP, because I've noticed the price of the "all-in-one" books skyrocketing lately (Barnes and Noble used to have a "leather"-bound copy for $20 three years ago which is $100 now). I sure hope these books don't go out of print, but if they do, you'll be glad you purchased this particular version, because it'll be passed down the family.
I have friends who are not Christians who LOVE these stories for their creativity and adventure. My Christian friends and I love the allegory, representative of Christ. We like to discuss that as a family, but it does NOT have to be pointed out at all, and not discussing it does not take away from the story. In fact, over-discussing it can take away from the story. I found it best for my children to discover the allegory themselves.
This is ONE large volume with all the books. It is NOT filled with photos. I think this is good...read the stories and allow the children to picture them in their minds. Kids nowadays spend too much time with videos/ visuals anyway.
Prince Caspian is told by his nurse stories of an old Narnia where there are talking beasts and Aslan is the high king. Miraz, Caspian's uncle, hears of this and quickly gets rid of the nurse and hires a tutor for Caspian. Miraz does not want anyone discussing the old Narnia; he likes it much better the way it is now with him as the ruler of Narnia. The new tutor teaches Caspian and helps him escape when it is learned that Caspian is to be killed so he will not take his rightful place as King of Narnia. Caspian flees his home and soon comes upon an unlikely group of animals; they are talking beasts. Trufflehunter (a badger) and Trumpkin (a red dwarf) turn out to be Caspian's strongest allies and assist him on his journey to evade Miraz's army. With the assistance of the talking beasts and the Pevensie's, Caspian must fight to take his rightful place in Narnia.
This installment of the Narnia series brought back more of the wonder that I was longing for and missed in The Horse and His Boy. I liked meeting the new characters in this book. Caspian is someone you can root for and I liked Reepicheep, the brave mouse.
