The Chronicles of Narnia Reading Guide

Source: HarperCollins Children's Books

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was first published in 1950, but C. S. Lewis began piecing together the story long before that. The tales and ancient myths his Irish nurse told always fascinated him, and when he was sixteen, a picture of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in the snowy woods popped into his head. Years later, during World War II, four children stayed with Mr. Lewis at his country house and stirred his imagination again. Not long afterward, he began writing the story that would become The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This reading guide from HarperCollins provides discussion questions for each of the books in the Chronicles of Narnia.
