The Narnia Chronicles, first published in 1950, have been and remain some of the most enduringly popular children’s books ever published. The best known, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, has been translated into 29 languages!
“It’s a magic wardrobe. There’s a wood inside it, and it’s snowing! Come and see,” begged Lucy.
Lucy has stumbled upon a marvellous land of fauns and centaurs, nymphs and talking animals. But soon she discovers that it is ruled by the cruel White Witch, and can only be freed by Aslan, the great Lion, and four children…
This is the second adventure in the exciting Chronicles of Narnia.
“Forget Simba. There’s a new lion in the Magic Kingdom… Long before J.K. Rowling dreamed up Harry Potter, Lewis was busy with his seven book series.”
“Like the ‘Rings’ cycle… the seven Narnia books have a long and loyal following.”
The Herald (U.K.)
“Narnia offers huge scope for a profitable film franchise… fantasy is currently the toast of Hollywood.”
The Guardian (U.K.)
“…a big, live action movie franchise to help spark new merchandising lines and theme-park attractions.”

About the author
Clive Staples Lewis, born in 1898, wrote many books for adults but the Narnia stories were his only works for children. The final title, The Last Battle, published in 1956, won the Carnegie Award, the highest mark of excellence in children’s literature.
Excellent narration (overall) from Michael York.
It’s always nice to take a trip to the other side of the wardrobe door.
One of my favorite book but It was only half the book
