Step inside the wardrobe. . . . You may be surprised at what you find. In C. S. Lewis’s classic, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Lucy, Peter, Susan, and Edmund discover Narnia for the first time, precariously navigating their way through the unpredictable, enchanted world where beavers talk, a Witch turns people to stone, and a Lion rules as King. For decades their adventure has captivated the imagination of both children and adults. Yet this first story in the Chronicles – and the story behind the story – still hold many surprises and unpredictable twists and turns. In this interactive, informative book, literary expert Leland Ryken and Lewis scholar Marjorie Lamp Mead unlock the door to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, inviting you to step inside – deeper and deeper, past the musty fur coats – and gaze in wide-eyed wonder once again at the magical, wintery world Lucy first found.
A Reader’s Guide Through the Wardrobe helps you examine the story from Lewis’s point of view, shedding light on his imagination and use of literary forms. Even further, Mead and Ryken serve as your guides through this first Narnia adventure, providing an inside look at characters, setting, and framework. Here is a book that will help you see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as Lucy first saw Narnia – with fresh, new eyes, childlike wonder, and anticipation for the adventure that lies ahead.
