The World of Narnia Collection - Illustrated by Deborah Maze

This collection is adapted for the younger reader (ages 5-9) from The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. Four great books in one: Lucy Steps Through the Wardrobe; Edmund and the White Witch; Aslan; and Aslan's Triumph.

My daughter is reading the Narnia Series and I thought this book would be a quick intro for her. It has a large font and plenty of detailed pictures illustrated by Deborah Maze (a devoted C.S. Lewis reader).

Excerpt From Christian Book Distributors:

Experience wondrous adventures in the land of Narnia! This captivating picture book collection is based on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and gathers four individual picture books, Lucy Steps Through the Wardrobe, Edmund and the White Witch, Aslan, and Aslan's Triumph, into one volume.

In Lucy Steps Through the Wardrobe, Lucy finds her way into the magical land of Narnia. Her brother, Edmund, follows her, and in Edmund and the White Witch, he is enchanted by the Witch. She promises him the throne of Narnia (as well as all the Turkish Delight he could eat!) in exchange for his brother and sisters. In Aslan, all of the children find themselves in Narnia and are taken to meet Aslan, the Great Lion. Together, in Aslan's Triumph, they set off to fight the White Witch and reverse her evil spell.
