This is an amazing book series for both adults and kids. I remember reading my very first Chronicle of Narnia (The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, the 2nd book) and it really just opened up a whole new world for me. These books made reading so magical for me. Even today I read these books every once in a while just to experience the same joy I did as a kid. I've also given this series to my nephew, because I know he will like it as much as I did. The intelligence of this series does not hurt either (the allegories, etc.). A must read for everyone.

Author Info
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.

In the blink of an eye, their lives are changed forever.The Horse and His BoyAn orphaned boy and a kidnapped horse|gallop for Narnia ... and freedom.NARNIA . . . where horses talk and hermits like company, where evil men turn into donkeys, where boys go into battle ... and where the adventure begins.During the Golden Age of Narnia, when Peter is High King, a boy named Shasta discovers he is not the son of Arsheesh, the Calormene fisherman, and decides to run far away to the North-to Narnia.

It leads to the open moor . . . or does it? Once again Aslan has a task for the children, and Narnia needs them. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, they pursue the quest that brings them face to face with the evil Witch. She must be defeated if Prince Rilian is to be saved.The Last Battle The conclusion of the saga that beganwith The Magician's Nephew.NARNIA ... where dwarfs are loyal and tough and strong-or are they? . . . where you must say goodbye ... and where the adventure begins again.The Unicorn says that humans are brought to Narnia when Narnia is stirred and upset. And Narnia is in trouble now: A false Aslan roams the land. Narnia's only hope is that Eustace and Jill, old friends to Narnia, will be able to find the true Aslan and restore peace to the land. Their task is a difficult one because, as the Centaur says, "The stars never lie, but Men and Beasts do." Who is the real Aslan and who is the imposter?
