相較於細節考究驚人的魔戒, Chronicles of Narnia系列顯得樸素許多，無論是在故事、格局、版圖,、角色數量、還有許許多多的細節上,，Chronicles of Narnia都如書中作者提獻所說的，是部為孩童而寫的”童書”。 但事實上, Chronicles of Narnia不只寫給孩童，除了引人入勝的背景，緊湊動人的故事外，作者把許許多多隱含的驚喜，用簡明易懂的語言表達出來，在童話裡加入那們一分反思的意味，讓讀者知道，原來除了中土世界外，奇幻文學還有這麼多角落，這麼多值得一讀的好書。改編的電影將於今年年底上映。 這本全彩珍藏版的納尼亞傳奇第二集 - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe，不但所有圖片都是彩色印刷，連書籍的內頁也全部採用銅板紙的材質，也因此不管是書籍的紙質與觸感或是印刷品質，都是讀者珍藏的上上之選。書裡所有的彩色插畫都出自於第一位與作者C.
