Horn Book Guide Reviews 2005 Fall
The handsome, detailed illustrations are what chiefly recommend this retelling of Lewis's classic fantasy. The artist is particularly adept at contrasting the White Witch and her icy environs with Aslan and his golden aura. While Oram's retelling retains the crucial plot elements and sets a brisk pace, readers who can appreciate this book aren't far from appreciating the original--so why not wait?
