The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is now a major motion picture from Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media. 'Like his fellow genius, Tolkien, C. S. Lewis has redefined the nature of fantasy, adding richness, beauty, and dimension.... In our times, every fantasy realm must be measured in comparison with Narnia.' -Lloyd Alexander. Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures and epic battles between good and evil -- the book that has it all is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, written in 1949 by C. S. Lewis. But Lewis did not stop there. Six more books followed, and together they became known as The Chronicles of Narnia. For over 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.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the world's earliest glimpse into the magical land of Narnia in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Pauline Baynes, the first illustrator of C.S. Lewis's enchanting creatures and remarkable landscapes, has hand painted her original black-and-white pictures for a beautiful new full-color collection of all seven volumes in the Chronicles of Narnia series. In keeping with the otherworldly, earthy nature of the stories, Baynes's colors are muted yet rich, tending toward warm greens and golds, printed on lovely smooth, high-quality paper. This stunning gift box is truly a gem, containing, in addition to the best-loved classic, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Magician's Nephew, The Horse and His Boy, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, and The Last Battle. Each title also features Baynes's original cover art from the 1950s. Whether entering Narnia for the first time (lucky you!) or the hundredth, visitors to the land beyond the Wardrobe will gasp in delight to see the fauns, lions, unicorns, and children of Narnia bloom with new life and delicate color. (Ages 8 and older) --Emilie CoulterFrom the Back Cover:
