The Last Battle

by C. S. Lewis and Pauline Baynes

Narnia . . . where lies breed fear . . . where loyalty is tested . . . where all hope seems lost

Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, a series that has become part of the canon of classic literature, drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over fifty years. A complete stand-alone read, but if you want to relive the adventures and find out how it began, pick up The Magician’s Nephew, the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
