The adventure begins
Narnia ... where Talking Beasts walk ... where a witch waits ... where a new world is about to be born.
On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into
another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But then
the lion Aslan's song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a
land that will be known as Narnia. And in Narnia, all things are
This large, deluxe hardcover edition of the first title in the classic Chronicles of Narnia series, The Magician's Nephew, is a gorgeous introduction to the magical land of Narnia. The many readers who discovered C.S. Lewis's Chronicles through The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
will be delighted to find that the next volume in the series is
actually the first in the sequence--and a step back in time. In this
unforgettable story, British schoolchildren Polly and Digory
inadvertently tumble into the Wood Between the Worlds, where they meet
the evil Queen Jadis and, ultimately, the great, mysterious King Aslan.
We witness the birth of Narnia and discover the legendary source of all
the adventures that are to follow in the seven books that comprise the
series. Rich, heavy pages, a gold-embossed cover, and Pauline
Baynes's original illustrations (hand-colored by the illustrator
herself 40 years later) make this special edition of a classic a bona
fide treasure. (Ages 9 and older)
