Description
Illustrated with more than 50 photographs, this is the story of C.S. Lewis's life and work for readers 12 and up, from his boyhood in Belfast, Ireland, where he and his brother created their first imaginary world in an attic hideaway, to Lewis's adult years as a renowned scholar and the creator of the Chronicles of Narnia.

"[Beatrice] Gormley does an excellent job of introducing Lewis, a Christian philosopher and author, to the many young people who have enjoyed his Chronicles of Narnia.... She focuses on how Lewis's early life, including the death of his mother and his uneasy relationship with his father, had a continuing impact on his adult life and his writings. Most central to her story, however, is Lewis's personal journey from atheist to committed Christian, and Gormley frames this inner conflict in a way readers will not only understand but also identify with."Booklist
