Product Description

From the Back Cover

The second of C. S. Lewis’s novels to be produced in graphic novel style, 'The Magician’s Nephew' is actually the first in the Chronicles of Narnia series of seven titles.

Polly and Digory meet one day over their garden wall. They decide to explore the attics above their houses one wet summer afternoon, and by mistake come across Digory’s mad Uncle Andrew in the middle of an experiment. First Polly, then Digory, touch the magic rings which take them out of our world and into another one, where they encounter the evil Empress Jadis and by mistake bring her back to England. In a desperate attempt to get her away from the havoc she causes in London, the two children magic her and several others into a totally different world – the world of Narnia.

About the Author

Born to a coal-mining family in 1945, Robin Lawrie emigrated to Canada in 1953 and lived in Vancouver till 1968. Returning then to Britain, his freelance career as an illustrator and occasional author has continued until the present day.
He now lives in the Shropshire hills with his wife and two children, and tries to divide his time between the demands of freelance work, a young family, and restoring an ancient timber-framed farmhouse.

Format: Paperback
This is my favourite Narnia story and has so much to offer: a secret passageway in the attic that links a grand terrace of houses, a pathetic but dangerous inventor, Uncle Andrew, complete with a foppish mop of grey hair, a box of magic rings "that looked so delicious that Polly, had she been a small child, might have popped one into her mouth", the ability to step from one world to the next via magic ponds, the witnessing of the creation of a new world - Narnia - by Aslan the lion-God figure, and a force of evil - the witch - who has learnt the "deplorable word" that can end civilisations when it is spoken. Like the story itself, the illustrations are surreal and majestic, with art deco style borders that really set the events in the Victorian era. The composition and the detail of the illustrations are of superior quality and each page is quite remarkable. Particularly dramatic are the illustrations of the fading world with the dying sun, the ruined, once majestic buildings now cast in watery orange sunlight. For a child who finds novels a bit much, this is definitely inspiring.

Beautiful illustrations, wonderful adaption 28 May 2014
By Peter Pevensie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed looking through this adaption of The Magician's Nephew. Normally I do not care to bother with adapted or abridged books, but this is an exception. The many beautiful illustrations capture the spirit of Narnia.

If you enjoyed this book, check out The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe version as well. It's sad that only these two were made.
Beautiful and inspiring! 24 Feb. 2008

Format: Paperback
This beautifully illustrated version of the Magician's Nephew brings the classic book to life even for young children who can't take on the chapter book. My 5 and 3 year olds are enchanted by this story.

"The Magician's Nephew - Chronicles of Narnia" illustrated by Robin Lawrie 12 Jan. 2011
By Gloria Thomas - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This item was supposedly shipped on December 16th, but I'm still waiting to get it. The last message said it would arrive between December 23rd and January 10th. This is January 12th, and it's still not here. What is the status of this order?

Thank you.
Gloria Thomas
