From dust jacket notes: "...Today's readers can now meet the creator of the magical world of Narnia, who described himself as a 'tall, fat, rather bald, red-faced, double-chinned, black-haired' man with a deep voice and reading glasses. Through his letters Lewis shared with his young correspondents his feelings about school (he hated math), writing, and animals. And of course, he talked about Narnia, explaining why there are only seven books in the Chronicles, how to pronounce Aslan's name, and whether Susan will be able to return to Narnia. What emerges from this captivating collection are Lewis's clear understanding of childhood and the respect he felt for his young readers. As he once said: 'I don't think age matters so much as people think. Parts of me are still 12, and I think other parts were already 50 when I was 12.'..."

Grade 6 Up A collection of letters to children from C. S. Lewis that will enthrall Narnia lovers. Most children will skip the foreword by Lewis' stepson and the brief sketch of Lewis' childhood (although both are accessible to young readers) and go straight to the letters themselvesa selection arranged chronologically, with some deletions to promote clarity and eliminate repetition. Most of the letters concern Narnia, but there are also touching letters to Lewis' godchild. Some letters offer encouragement and advice to young writers. Often correspondence was carried on with the same children over a number of years, and the letters answer questions that children might still have. Some letters are preceded by explanations in brackets, and there are plenty of explanatory footnotes. Lewis' few theological discussions are not overwhelming and, except for a few instances, are quite clear. The bibliography includes books and other media and is divided into two sections, one of interest to children, the other for advanced readers, parents and teachers.
