Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
From the illustrator of C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia comes an enchanting full-color book featuring the exotic Narnian characters. Those familiar with Baynes' black and white line artwork in the original series will delight in these new color illustrations. She captures the magical feel of her original delicate pen drawings. The individual profiles, which accompany each illustration, set the character in the context of the whole Narnian history. This is also a wonderful way to introduce a young reader to the whole Narnia series. In the back is an additional cast of characters and a synopsis of the each book in the series. Next to C. S. Lewis' outline of Narnian history (to chronicle Narnian years versus English years), Baynes has lovingly drawn a detailed map of Narnia. It is interesting to note that some of the fantastical creatures who appear in this book were not illustrated in the original. For all lovers of Narnia as well as those just beginning to explore C. S. Lewis' magical world, this is a real treat.
School Library Journal
Gr 3 UpThis who's who presents 33 mostly nonhuman characters or groups that appear in Lewis's classic series. They are briefly described and some of their stories related. The words are largely Lewis's own, though plucked selectively, and omitting much, from the originals. The selection is skillfully done, but transitions between description and storytelling are sometimes awkward. The full-color paintings retain the liveliness and expression of the originals, but their scale and perspective make them grander all around. Whereas the original pen-and-ink drawings were often seen from a distance and punctuated the text only occasionally, these bordered and decorative landscapes and closeups present constant and considerably fleshed-out vistas and creatures. Though the new art is impressive, and often lovely, readers may miss the smaller-scale charm and sharply etched detail of the black-and-white originals. Those who've read the books will find the most to enjoy here, seeing old friends and enemies in fuller garb. The sheer numbers will confuse Narnia neophytes, and despite the attempt to provide context in the descriptions, some knowledge of characters is assumed. Lewis's outline of Narnian history appears, as does a succinct annotation of each title. Brian Sibley's Land of Narnia (HarperCollins, 1990) also includes a few new paintings by Baynes (different from these), but, with its biographical and literary angles, adds new information. The art is the draw in the Book of Narnians, and it is fascinating to see the artist take on things these many years later, but the originals are still quite wonderful enough.Nancy Palmer, The Little School, Bellevue, WA
From Barnes & Noble
The seven books that comprise C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia are beloved by children all over the world. This volume collects some of the wonderful creatures from the Kingdom of Narnia, depicting them in full-color paintings by Pauline Baynes, the artist whose black-and-white drawings were used in many editions of the stories. Text woven largely from Lewis's own words accompanies each illustration, placing each character -- from the White Witch to Mr. Tumnus and the wondrous Aslan--in the context of the stories. The book also includes paintings of some animal characters that have never been illustrated before. Ages 8 and up.

    a wonderful series

    this is a really outstanding addition to english literature, written by the highly respectable author, C.S. Lewis, a great friend of J.R.R. Tolkein. LWW is actually the 2nd chronological book in the 7 part series but the 1st written and by far the most popular. My advice is to read the entire series, starting with the Magician's Nephew, the beginning of the story. As you can tell from my title this is really an amazing series, right up there with Harry potter and the Lord of the Rings. It's full of beauty and every single book in the chronicles of narnia, as the series is entitled, brings tears to my eyes and newfound guidance in my life.
