VOYADisney'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.
