Newswise — An Elizabethtown College English professor has written a companion volume to C.S. Lewis’s Narnia series just in time for the December release of the Walt Disney film “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.” David Downing’s book, “Into the Wardrobe: C.S. Lewis and the Narnia Chronicles” tells of the genesis of “The Chronicles of Narnia,” a seven-book series written by Lewis. The first book in the series, “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe,” introduces readers to four London children who are sent to a professor’s country home for protection during World War II. There they find a magic wardrobe that leads to a mystical land called Narnia, which is being ruled by an evil witch. To defeat the witch, they must join forces with Aslan, the lion God of Narnia, and fight the great battle between good and evil. [More]
