The series consists of seven books. In each, a group of children is transported from the real world in the fabulous world of Narnia, to save it from the forces of darkness. Here they discover magic and amazing creatures, inspired by the northern folklore and the classic mythology, and also terrible witches or evil demons. There are noticeable, also, the strong Christian influences that the story has, symbols appearing everywhere.

The style is very descriptive yet alert, the narration always keeping the reader’s attention. The chapters are short, and the books sometimes prove too short. Lewis manages to create a lively and exciting Narnia, both for adults and children. The Chronicles of Narnia form an unforgettable story and a world of the eternal childhood.
