Author information

C.S. Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898. In 1917 he went to Oxford University, but his studies were interrupted by the First World War, from which he was sent home wounded. One of his friends at Oxford was J.R.R. Tolkien. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was published in 1950. Fascinated by the difference in time between our own world and Narnia, Lewis wrote some of the books in a different order to the events which they portrayed. An example of this is The Magician's Nephew, which details the early history of Narnia and is intended to be read before the others. C.S. Lewis died in 1963.

Editorial reviews

A sequel to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952) takes Eustace Scrubb who went with the Pevensia?? children on their last voyage to the make believe land of Narnia, on a return trip- this time with a school friend Jill. In Narnia, Aslan the friendly lion, commission them to hunt for lost prince Rilian. After adventures with enchantresses and monzters, they find the prince, return to their hated school (which by way of sounding off against "progressive education" Mr. Lewis has described as a place full of trumped-up psychological problems) and as if by magic change it for the better. English fantasy we hope some young Americans may fancy. (Kirkus Reviews)
