About the Book

Are you traveling to Narnia? No matter if this is your first visit to C. S. Lewis's wonderful fantasy world or if you've been there many times, you'll want to bring along this handy companion to the landscape and inhabitants of Narnia, including an A-to-Z guide to characters, places, objects and events. From Narnia expert Colin Duriez you'll learn: more about the mind behind Narnia; how Narnia relates to other imaginative worlds and childrens literature; about the history within the stories of Narnia; how Narnia fits into Lewis's other work. Duriez also takes up some the sticky questions that you may be left wondering about, such as the destiny of Susan. His book will help you dig deeper into the series and its implications for understanding the Christian life. - Publisher.
