HarperCollins is proud to present a celebration of C.S. Lewis' timeless classic, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, lovingly brought to life in the original design and with the original illustrations. The most loved of all the Chronicles, this wonderful tale can be enjoyed again and again. "This is the land of Narnia," said the Faun, "where we are now. And you - you have come from the wild woods of the west?" "I - I got in through the wardrobe in the spare room," said Lucy. Lucy steps into the Professor's wardrobe - but steps out again into a snowy forest. She's stumbled upon the magical world of Narnia, land of unicorns, centaurs, fauns...and the wicked White Witch, who terrorises all. Lucy soon realises that Narnia, and in particular Aslan, the great Lion, needs her help if the country's creatures are ever going to be free again.
