The Narnia Chronicles, first published in 1950, have been and remain some of the most enduringly popular ever published. The best known, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, has been translated into 29 languages! This slipcase holds all 7 titles. With Baynes' b/w illustrations and Heller's fantasy covers these books are very appealing. The cvoers have been enhanced with a new fantasy look and the insides have had new type treatment.
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 Carnegic Award, the highest mark of excellence in children's literature.
