Passport to Narnia: A Newcomer’s Guide

“Since you might not be able to read all the books before seeing the movie, this guide (by the same author who has written guides to the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books) is a good way to get up to speed if, for example, you don’t know the significance of a lamppost in the middle of a snowy forest.
“The guide has short chapters and is well organized, so if questions occur to you after reading (or watching), you will be able to find the answers quickly. Our favorite: Where you can get Turkish Delight!”
Millions of moviegoers will “visit” Narnia for the first time when The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is released nationally in theatres on December 9, but what primer is available to explain the world of C.S. Lewis and Narnia to the newcomer?
George Beahm’s recently released PASSPORT TO NARNIA: A NEWCOMER”S GUIDE is an accessible, reader-friendly introduction to the man who imagined Narnia and, for a half century, has delighted and enchanted 85 million readers since the publication of the first Narnia book, THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE.
An experienced tour guide, Beahm–the author of several books about fantasy writers, including J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K. Rowling, Anne Rice and Stephen King–provides a fun and fact-filled look at C.S. Lewis, the seven Narnia novels, and the growing Narnia phenomenon.
Profusely illustrated by former Disney Imagineer Tim Kirk, Passport to Narnia is every reader’s round-trip ticket to Narnia–and back through the Enchanted Wardrobe.
“C.S. Lewis’s Narnia books have stood the test of time — for over a half century,” said Beahm. “My new book was specifically written to appeal to a general audience, to secular readers and Christian readers as well.”
