This is a children’s classic.The recommended reading level is ages 9-12, but the set is truly for all ages. “Just as Lucy steps into the enchanted and frozen world of Narnia in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, so will you be drawn into this world, where a witch decrees eternal winter; where there are more talking animals than people; and where battles are fought by Centaurs, Giants, and Fauns.”
“One of the very few sets of books that should be read three times: In childhood, early adulthood, and late in life. In brief, for children travel repeatedly to a world in which they are far more than mere children and everything is far more than it seems. Richly told, populated with fascinating characters, perfectly realized in detail of word and pacing of plot, and profoundly allegorical, the story is infused throughout, with the timeless issues of good and evil, faith and hope.”
Clive Staples Lewis, was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends recounted to him by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was sixteen. Many years later, the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificent lion. Their story became The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, was awarded the United Kingdom’s prestigious Carnegie Award.” ISBN 0-064-40537-0 Soft Covers /
