The Chronicles of Narnia Box Set: Full-Color Collectors Edition by C. S. Lewis

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the worlds earliest glimpse into the magical land of Narnia in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Pauline Baynes, the first illustrator of C.S. Lewiss enchanting creatures and remarkable landscapes, has hand painted her original black-and-white pictures for a beautiful new full-color collection of all seven volumes in the Chronicles of Narnia series. In keeping with the otherworldly, earthy nature of the stories, Bayness colors are muted yet rich, tending toward warm greens and golds, printed on lovely smooth, high-quality paper. This stunning gift box is truly a gem, containing, in addition to the best-loved classic, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Magicians Nephew, The Horse and His Boy, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, and The Last Battle. Each title also features Bayness original cover art from the 1950s. Whether entering Narnia for the first time (lucky you!) or the hundredth, visitors to the land beyond the Wardrobe will gasp in delight to see the fauns, lions, unicorns, and children of Narnia bloom with new life and delicate color.

A Must Read For Anyone, Especially Youth.
I first read these books at the age of 19 after watching an animated TV show from 1977, called The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The first book deals with the adventures of the Pevensie children–Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan, who come to stay with a professor at his country estate during WWII.

During a game of indoor hide-and-seek, Lucy hides herself in a wardrobe but realizes that her hiding place is actually a doorway into a magical world known as Narnia. Lucy meets a faun named Tumnus who takes her back to his place for tea and soon realizes that Narnia isnt such a nice place at all because it is under the rule of the White Witch, who has placed it under perpetual winter.

When Tumnus sees Lucy back to the portal, she promises that they will see each other again, but Tumnus is afraid that there may be reprecussions from the White Witch for entertaining a daughter of Eve. Back home, Lucy tells her brothers and sister about her adventure in Narnia, but nobody will believe her until they all find their way there by accident. With all four Pevensie children now in Narnia, the struggle against the White Witch begins and the children must brave adventures, hardships and betrayal within their very ranks.

The other books continue on the adventures of the Pevensie children with Prince Caspian and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and successive titles. New characters are introduced and the true identity of the great Aslan, friend of the Pevensies since book one, is finally revealed.

A magical adventure with deeper messages for readers of all ages.
