Information on The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe Book and CD from the publisher:
The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe introduced readers to the wonders and enchantment of Narnia when it was first published almost fifty years ago. Since then the hearts and imaginations of millions of readers have been captured by the story of Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, who step through a magic wardrobe into Narnia, once the peaceful land of Talking Beasts, Dwarfs, Giants, and Fauns, but now frozen into winter by the evil White Witch.
Now, in this special gift-book edition of C.S. Lewis's timeless classic, the orignal illustrator of The Chronicles of Narnia, Pauline Baynes, has created beautiful new full-color plates for each chapter. Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy; Mr. and Mrs. Beaver; Mr. Tumnus, the Faun; the White Witch; and, of course, Aslan the Great Lion, guardian of Narnia -- all spring vividly to life in these richly detailed paintings. This glorious, finely wrought book makes the perfect introduction to all the wonders of Narnia and will be a keepsake to treasure forever.
About C. S. Lewis:
C. S. Lewis, Oxford University don and prolific writer, was one of the most brilliant Christian philosophers and apologists of the 20th century. At the same time, Lewis had the uncanny ability to speak clearly to even the very young. Since his death in the early 1960's, his books - which range from fiction to non-fiction and from juvenile to adult audiences - have created a lasting legacy for him.
