9780060290115: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (C. Birmingham edition) (The Chronicles of Narnia)

When Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are sent to stay with a kind Professor who lives in the country, they can hardly imagine the extraordinary adventure that awaits them.

It all begins one rainy summer day when the children explore the Professor's rambling old house. When they come across a room with an old wardrobe in the corner, Lucy immediately opens the door and gets inside it. To her amazement, she suddenly finds herself standing in the clearing of a wood on a winter afternoon, with snowflakes falling through the air. Lucy has found Narnia, a magical land of fauns and centaurs, nymphs and talking animals-and the beautiful but evil White Witch, who has held the country in eternal winter for a hundred years.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe has enchanted readers for fifty years and now, for the first time, will delight younger children as a picture book. With Christian Birmingham's illustrations providing an exquisite setting for the carefully abridged text, this book is set to become a classic in its own right.

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.
