The Chronicles of Narnia, C. S. Lewis’s seven-part fantasy masterpiece, has been transporting young readers to the land of Narnia for over 50 years. Complete with the series’ original illustrations by Pauline Baynes, this Harper Collins hardcover edition is a wonderful way of introducing these beloved sagas to a younger generation. An academic, poet, and lay-theologian (among other things), Lewis’s use of religious themes intertwined with classic mythology and fairy tales has made the series popular with adults as well as children, much like Lewis’s good friend, J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Juniper Books’ custom jackets feature an original painting by the artist Detour (Thomas Evans) of Aslan, the Great Lion; a central figure in the works who is said to have created the land of Narnia and is the only character to appear in all 7 volumes.
