Reviews - What do customers think about The Lion and the Land of Narnia: Our Adventures in Aslan's World?
Great gift idea... May 11, 2008
C. S. Lewis's world of Narnia will long live in my heart. His portrait of Aslan (JesusChrist) is stunning and heart rendering. The Lion and The Land of Narnia is a tribute to beautiful story. Robert Cording's paintings are magnificent. He captures the true essence Narnia, especially of Aslan.
Accompanying the art work are letters and essays about the original story. My favorite parts were the letters from children to C. S. Lewis and his answers, he seemed to enjoy their letters. When I first picked up this book, I expected a children's story. This is not necessarily a children's book. While they would enjoy the pictures, this book is for fans of C.S. Lewis and his works. The Lion and The Land of Narnia will make a great addition to your home library or as a gift.
