  • For the first time, an edition of Lewiss classic fantasy fiction packaged specifically for adults. Complementing the look of the authors non-fiction books, and anticipating the forthcoming Narnia feature films, this edition contains an exclusive "P.S." section about the history of the book, plus a sample chapter from its sequel. In 2003, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was ninth in the BBCs Big Read, the biggest ever survey among adults of popular fiction. That a childrens book should be in the top 10 proved to any doubters that C.S. Lewiss fantasy stories have the magic to engage even the most hardened adults. On 9 December 2005, Andrew (Shrek) Adamsons live-action film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will be released by Disney, and it is already being hailed as the biggest film franchise of all time, guaranteed to appeal to adults and children across the globe. The second film is already in development. Sporting breathtaking new photographic covers, these new adult editions of the seven Chronicles of Narnia
    now give everyone an opportunity to experience the adventures in their original form.
