The Chronicles of Narnia is one of the most popular fantasy series and has been translated into over forty languages and been adapted for radio, TV, the stage and cinema many times, and sold over 100 million copies.


C.S. Lewis has been a nominee and a winner of several awards for his novels. He has been a finalist for the Gandalf Awards for grandmaster of science fiction in 1975, 1976, and 1977. The novel “That Hideous Strength” was the finalist for the Prometheus Awards in 2003, and 2008.

He was awarded the Carnegie Award, the UK’s most prestigious honor for children’s literature for the novel “The Last Battle” of the Narnia Chronicles. In 1951, he was offered one of Britain’s highest civilian honors, the Commander of the British Empire (CBE). One of his earliest works, the 1936 published “The Allegory of Love” won the Hawthornden Prize.


Lewis works have been made into many TV series and movie adaptations over the years. The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe was the first to be adapted for TV in 1967. The 10-episode series was directed by Helen Standage, with Trevor Preston writing the screenplay. In 1979, the novel was adapted for TV for the second time, this time as an animated cartoon produced by Children’s Television Workshop in conjunction with Bill Melendez. Between 1988 and 1990, the first four of the Narnia Chronicles were made into TV serials by the BBC, and also aired in the US on Disney’s Wonderworks show. The adaptations were later made into three feature length movies that were released on DVD and VHS. In 2005, the first novel was adapted for the big screen and starred Liam Neeson as the Voice of Aslan, and Tilda Swinton as the witch Jadis. This was followed by Prince Caspian in 2008 and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in 2010, both of which went on to become major commercial successes.


The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: It is not surprising that the novel is one of the most popular given that it was made into a movie, cartoon, and TV series. The series begins with rumors that Aslan is on the move or that he has already landed, which sends different emotions through the main characters. Lucy gets the feeling that when one realizes that summer is at hand, Susan felt a delightful musical strain, Peter felt adventurous and brave, while Edmund is full of a mysterious sense of terror. Entering the bewitched lands of Narnia the four friends walk into a enchanted country only accessible to Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter. Lucy is the first to find the mysterious land after stumbling into it behind the professor’s enormous wardrobe in his ancient country house. At first, she is the object of derision from her friends. Soon Susan, Peter, and Edmund enter the magical land and meet its ruler, the Great Lion Aslan, who changes their lives forever.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: Another novel in the Chronicles of Narnia series that was adapted into a film. Edmund and Lucy ,together with their Eustace their dreadful cousin find themselves sucked into the painting of a ship that is sailing the high seas. Caspian, The King of Narnia, captains the Dawn Treader. Together with his companions, they seek seven lost noblemen of Narnia in a voyage that will see them travel to the ends of the earth.
