Chronologically first in beloved author C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was selected as one of America’s 100 most-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. Four adventurous siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie—step through a wardrobe door and into Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change … and a great sacrifice.
This paperback edition features lovely black-and-white illustrations by the series’s original illustrator, Pauline Baynes, and captivating cover art by artist Cliff Neilson. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe pairs with Patti Callahan’s companion novel, Once Upon a Wardrobe, as the first quarter selections for the 2023 Victoria Classics Book Club. (Sold Separately)
