9780007202287: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (The Chronicles of Narnia)

For the first time, an edition of Lewis's classic fantasy fiction packaged specifically for adults. Complementing the look of the author's non-fiction books, and anticipating the forthcoming Narnia feature films, this edition contains an exclusive "P.S." section about the history of the book, plus a sample chapter from its sequel. In 2003, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was ninth in the BBC's Big Read, the biggest ever survey among adults of popular fiction. That a 'children's book' should be in the top 10 proved to any doubters that C.S. Lewis's fantasy stories have the magic to engage even the most hardened adults. On 9 December 2005, Andrew (Shrek) Adamson's live-action film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will be released by Disney, and it is already being hailed as the biggest film franchise of all time, guaranteed to appeal to adults and children across the globe. The second film is already in development. Sporting breathtaking new photographic covers, these new adult editions of the seven Chronicles of Narnia now give everyone an opportunity to experience the adventures in their original form. Re-live your childhood fantasies or discover for the first time what everyone will be talking about by Christmas and savour some of the best-loved stories ever written.

From the Back Cover:

In 2000, we celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the book that first introduced millions of readers—young and old—to the magical land of Narnia. Now the timeless story of four English schoolchildren and their magnificent discovery is presented here in a special large-print edition, perfect for reading aloud. Parents who grew up with Narnia will now be able to read about Aslan, the Pevensie children, and the others with their own children in an easy-to-share format.

The land of Narnia is now available to a whole new generation of readers to treasure, enjoy, and pass on yet again.

From the Back Cover:

Narnia … the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy … the place where adventure begins. Lucy is the first to find the secret wardrobe in the professor's mysterious old house. At first, no one believes her when she tells of her adventures in the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund and then Peter and Susan discover the Magic and meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. In blink of an eye, their lives are changed forever.
