Happy Birthday, Narnia!

Happy 59th birthday to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, first published October 16, 1950.

A reviewer in The Guardian (February 23, 1951) remarked of the book, "The whole air of the story is rich and strange and coherent; there is something of Hans Andersen's power to move and George MacDonald's power to create strange worlds, and it is, naturally, beautifully written."
