To commemorate the 50th anniversary of"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", all seven titles of "The Chronicles of Narnia" are packaged in deluxe paperback editions. Each book features the original, color illustrations by award-winning illustrator Pauline Baynes.

From the Publisher
Enter C. S. Lewis's magical world of Narnia, where enchanted creatures live and fierce battles are fought between good and evil. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the most incredible lands ever created, these new digest-sized paperback editions of the seven titles of The Chronicles of Narnia "RM" feature full-color art by Pauline Baynes, the original illustrator of this universally loved classic series. These editions also feature full-color covers from the original books first published in the United Kingdom. Each book stands alone as a work of genius, but together all seven tell the entire history of a fantastic world that becomes as real as our own. These full-color editions, perfect for collectors and fans, join the immensely popular black-and-white hardcover, digest-sized, and rack-sized formats of The Chronicles of Narnia "RM" and are available individually or in handsome boxed sets.

Annotation:
This set includes all seven volumes of the classic, allegorical, and greatly beloved children's fantasy series, the Chronicles of Narnia: THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW; THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE; THE HORSE AND HIS BOY; PRINCE CASPIAN; THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER; THE SILVER CHAIR; and THE LAST BATTLE. Children of England (Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie; Eustace Scrubb; Jill Pole; Digory Kirke; and Polly Plummer) find their way into Narnia, a magical land with talking animals, stupid giants, friendly fauns, and evil witches, watched over by the wise and noble lion Aslan, son of the Emperor-over-sea. Once there, the children take part in the battle between good and evil, experiencing many adventures and making profound moral choices that alter both the country and themselves forever. ||There is some dispute about the correct reading order of the books. The first published book was THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE, in which young Lucy Pevensie walks through a wardrobe to discover a snow-bound Narnia. THE HORSE AND HIS BOY, about a poor boy with a mysterious heritage, two enslaved talking horses, and a young noblewoman escaping an arranged marriage who prevent an invasion, actually overlaps in time with THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE but was published fifth. Meanwhile, the book published sixth, THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW, is the earliest in the series timeline; it features Digory Kirke, the elderly owner of the magic wardrobe, as a young boy and concerns the creation of Narnia. Regardless of the order in which the novels are read, the series is considered a landmark in the genre.
Author Bio
C. S. Lewis
Clive Staples Lewis was educated in England, attending Oxford in 1917. World War I interrupted his studies and Lewis served in the trenches for two years. In 1919 he returned to Oxford, where he remained until 1954. An atheist, Lewis converted to Christianity in 1929, and spent his life pursuing many interests: his acclaimed Narnia books and a trilogy of space travel novels; books concerning religion; and an academic career in medieval and renaissance literature. In 1955, Lewis moved on to Magdalen College, Cambridge University; in 1956 he married Joy Davidman Gresham, who died in 1960. Lewis survived her by three years.
