The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the first and best-known in C.S. Lewis fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia. A morality tale, written at least in part, according to the author, to teach children good manners, it is a blend of Christian allegory and classical western mythology, a mix that seems to work for most people, but others, like Lewis' good friend J.R.R. Tolkien dislike the combination intensely. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe has been in continual publication since it first appeared in 1950.
