The Chronicles of Narnia - 31 CDs Unabridged - Audio Book -C.S. Lewis
Brand New (still shrink wrapped): On CD - Unabridged -31 hours on 31 CDs Over 50 years ago, C.S. Lewis created a land of wonder and enchantment called
Narnia, and since then over 60 million readers have discovered the wondrous world that exists beyond the back of the wardrobe.
C.S. Lewis once wrote that the idea for the Narnia books came to him from images: "a faun carrying an umbrella, a queen in a sledge, a magnificent lion." From these mental pictures he created the Land of
Narnia, a land populated with a rich diversity of beings, some very like their counterparts in our world, some derived from his knowledge and love of myth and fairy tale, and some, like
Puddleglum, purely his own invention. Here you can meet them all!This collection includes programs of seven titles in C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of
Narnia: THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW; THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE; THE HORSE AND HIS BOY; PRINCE CASPIAN; THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER; THE SILVER CHAIR; and THE LAST BATTLE. Stunning packaging and a classic cast of narrators complement this special listening experience. The great British voices of Ian Richardson, Claire Bloom, Sir Anthony Quail, and Michael York weave Lewis's web of stories and adventures.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, published in 1950, tells the story of
four ordinary children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie. They discover
that a professor's wardrobe leads to the magical land of Narnia, and help to

Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia

Pevensie children's second trip to Narnia where they discover that an evil king
from Telmar has taken control of Narnia
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Published in 1952, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader returns Edmund and Lucy
Pevensie, along with their priggish cousin, Eustace Scrubb, to Narnia. Once
there they accompany King Caspian on a voyage to find the seven lords who were
banished when Caspian's evil uncle Miraz stole the throne. This perilous
journey brings them face to face with many wonders and dangers as they sail
toward Aslan's country at the end of the world.
The Silver Chair
Published in 1953, The Silver Chair is the first book without the Pevensie
children. Instead, Aslan calls Eustace back to Narnia together with his fellow
student Jill Pole. There they are given four clues to find Prince Rilian who is
missing. Eustace and Jill, with the help of Puddleglum the Marsh-wiggle and
others, face danger before finding Rilian and breaking him free from the spell
of the Emerald Witch.

the South of Narnia. By chance, one day they meet and plan their return to
Narnia and freedom. On their journey they discover that the Calormenes are
about to invade Narnia and sound the alarm. This chronicle is set during the
reign of the Pevensie Children as Kings and Queens of Narnia.
The Magician's Nephew
Published in 1955, the prequel The Magician's Nephew brings us back to the very
beginning of Narnia where we learn how Aslan created the world and how evil
first entered it. Many mysteries of Narnia are revealed as another group of
children stumble into Narnia via an entirely different route. This is,
chronologically, the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia.
The Last Battle
Published in 1956 and awarded the Carnegie Medal, The Last Battle chronicles
the end of the world of Narnia. Jill and Eustace return to save Narnia from
Shift, an ape, who tricks Puzzle, a donkey, into impersonating Aslan. The
treacherous Carlormenes make a deal with Shift to take over Narnia. This is the
seventh and last book in the Chronicles of Narnia.
