Pauline Baynes illustrations for The Chronicles of Narnia span a remarkable career, beginning with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in 1949 and continuing with the hand-coloring of all seven books forty years later.From School Library Journal:
PreS Up-- This collection of 35 prayers represents 13 different countries and/or cultures. Although none of the choices is unusual--22 have been taken from other published sources, and others are traditional--the selection and presentation are effective and attractive. Most of the prayers are short and read aloud well. Only one specifically mentions God's "dear son." Although the collection ends with the Lord's Prayer, it is suitable to any monotheistic, ethical religion. The majority of the selections originated in England; however, France, Germany, Japan, India, Poland, Italy, and Spain are represented, as well as Moslem, Hebrew, and African prayers. The sumptuous, colorful illustrations are busy, yet elegant and delicately detailed, and filled with active, swirling lines. Paintings are formally arranged across the bottom of each page, with small, beautiful vignettes decorating and softening the text, which is printed in a large, readable typeface. The scenes of Japan and India show figures in gorgeous traditional costume. Other pictures are fantasias of flowers and animals, modern or medieval scenes. A fine beginning for a religion collection. --Patricia Pearl, First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
