A stunning new edition of this timeless classic. This is the best loved of all the Chronicles of Narnia - the first one ever written, and the one everybody remembers reading as a child. 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 eternal winter by the evil White Witch. Christian Birmingham's beautiful illustrations , accompanied by a sensitively abridged text, introduce this wonderful story to a younger audience.
