A Readerís Guide through the Wardrobe Ė Exploring C.S. Lewisís Classic Story
Authors: Leland Ryken and Marjorie Lamp Mead 
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
Length: 192 Pages
If you have visited a bookstore recently you have likely seen a large display featuring stacks of C.S. Lewis and Narnia books. It may take some digging to find, but A Readerís Guide through the Wardrobe would be a nice pick for serious students of Narnia and C.S. Lewisí classic works wishing to dig deeper. The gateway is the magic wardrobe, and Lewis Scholar Marjorie Lamp Mead and literary expert Leland Ryken open the doors and invite you to join them as they explore the literary forms used by Lewis and look with wonder on his creation. Authorís Mead and Ryken guide the reader through a tour of Narnia seen through the eyes of C.S. Lewis and the characters in the beloved Chronicles. 
A Readerís Guide through the Wardrobe features two partsÖa "Guided Tour of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" with an in-depth and exciting examination of the book, the author, characters and subject matter; and "Narnian Backgrounds" with information on the creation of the Chronicles and the literary works of C.S. Lewis. +A Readerís Guide through the Wardrobe+ also features questions for reflection and discussion, a recommended reading list, detailed notes, and a thorough index. The most pleasant surprise is that A Readerís Guide through the Wardrobe does not read like a dry, scholarly reference book but as a memorable Sunday afternoon friendly discussion as Lewisí magic world is explored by friends and fans. Recommended.
