C. S. Lewis, or Jack Lewis, as he preferred to be called, was born in Belfast, Ireland (now Northern Ireland) on
November 29, 1898. He was the second son of Albert Lewis, a lawyer, and Flora Hamilton Lewis. His older
brother, Warren Hamilton Lewis, who was known as Warnie, had been born three years earlier in 1895. When
Lewis turned to writing children's books, his publisher and some of his friends tried to dissuade him; they
thought it would hurt his reputation as writer of serious works. J.R.R. Tolkien in particular criticized Lewis's first
Narnia book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. He thought that there were too many elements that
clashed—a Father Christmas and an evil witch, talking animals and children. Thankfully, Lewis didn't listen to
any of them.
Following the publication of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in 1950, Lewis quickly wrote 6 more Narnia
books, publishing the final one, The Last Battle, in 1956. Although they were not well received at first by critics
and reviewers, the books gained in popularity through word of mouth. The Narnia books have since sold more
than 100 million copies and are among the most beloved books of classic children's literature.
Book 7: A false Aslan is roaming
Narnia, commanding everyone to
work for the cruel Calormemes.
Can Eustace and Jill find the true
Aslan and restore peace to the
land? The last battle is the
greatest of all and the final
struggle between good and evil.
