Overview


New to Narnia? Don't feel lost—or alone! This accessible, illustrated guide is your passport to C. S. Lewis's enchanting world of Narnia and all its wonders. Written especially for newcomers, Passport to Narnia tells you everything you need to know about Narnia and its creator, C. S. Lewis. Fun, fact-filled, and entertaining, it also features the art of award-winning fantasy illustrator Tim Kirk, whose map of Narnia and delightful drawings lend just the right touch.

Written by a seasoned traveler who has taken his readers in previous books to J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth and J. K. Rowling's wizarding world of Harry Potter, author George Beahm is your guide to the wonders of Narnia.

What's the story behind Lewis's writing The Chronicles of Narnia? What is its geography and who are its people? Who are the principal characters in each book, and what challenges await them? These, and many more, questions are answered.

From Lewis's Narnia novels to early coverage of Disney's adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and the wealth of related products (audiobooks, dramatizations, other books by Lewis, and books about him), this companion book is a reader's delight.

Through the wardrobe, to the lamppost in the Lantern Waste, and to the very edges of the Eastern Ocean, Beahm's Passport to Narnia is your first-class ticket to C. S. Lewis's enduring children's classic that has enthralled and entertained readers for more than half a century.

Beahm has chronicled Narnia in a reader-friendly way that will charm both the young and old, the new and seasoned readers: This is your ticket to Lewis's world beyondthe wardrobe.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Disney's film version of perennial fantasy favorite The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will pique interest in C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia. This title provides readers with excellent information about all seven books in the series. Beahm, author of books about the Harry Potter series, provides an accessible guide to Narnia with illustrations by a former Disney Imagineer. The book is divided into four parts: The first gives information about Lewis, the second looks at the books, the third explores the Disney film, and the fourth provides further resources such as books and Web sites. Photographs of jewelry and movie tie-in merchandise are included as well. Light in tone but not frivolous, Beahm's book is a clear, informational guide to the world of Narnia. Illustrations, lists, and font size will attract those in middle school and older. VOYA CODES: 4Q 2P M J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2005, Hampton Roads, 200p.; Illus.
