Any lover of books will know The Chronicles of Narnia series. It is a classic in children’s literature, and is considered C.S Lewis’ best works. The Chronicles of Narnia series has been translated into 47 languages and has sold over 100 million copies. All the illustrations were done by Pauline Baynes.

The novels were all originally published between 1950 and 1956, in London. ‘Narnia’ came from a town in Italy – Narni. Narni is written in Latin as Narnia.books

Lewis borrowed themes and ideas liberally from various ancient sources. From christian stories, to Greek and Roman mythology, to Irish and British mythology. Lewis’ books differed from children’s literature up until that time in that he explored themes such as religion, race and gender. He did not write the books in the order they were published, and they were not published in the chronological order of the series. Aslan – the talking lion – is the only character to feature in all 7 books. He first appears in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and his character is further developed throughout the books.
