The sixth and penultimate book in the Narnia series.The sixth novel of C.S. Lewis' Narnia Chronicles, first published in 1955. The Magician's Nephew takes place before The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, and acts as a prequel to the series. Although it again follows the adventures of a group of interlopers into a magical - and dangerous - fantasy world, and shares Lewis' focus on the Christian values of sin and redemption, the tone of the book is actually much funnier and more lighthearted than the rest of the volumes in the series. The Chronicles of Narnia are, of course, immensely popular. The books have been published in over 40 languages, and sold over 100 million copies. "I'm happy to report that Narnia has now produced one of its best crops." (Contemporary New York Times Review). about Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
