《納尼亞傳奇》是一套七冊的奇幻兒童文學,由著名的英國作家克利夫·史戴普·路易斯在1950年代所著,為英美兒童文學經典之一。

故事的開始講述一個小男孩偶然進入了一個異世界,並在那裡經歷過一連串的冒險,及看到那個世界的創造。之後,他將一顆從異世界帶來的種子埋在花園裡,還長成了一顆大樹。這棵大樹後來被颶風颳倒,又被造成了衣櫥,然後又引領了四個小孩子進入這個神奇國度的不同時期,每一本互有關連,但亦可獨立閱讀。

作者利用故事內不同的人物和動物角色,使用比喻或隱喻來向小朋友講述聖經的道理。相對於當時嚴肅的主日學課程來說,路易斯的故事可以說是一個很大的突破。

The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven fantasy novels for children written by C. S. Lewis. It is considered a classic of children’s literature and is the author’s best-known work, having sold over 100 million copies in 41 languages. Written by Lewis between 1949 and 1954 and illustrated by Pauline Baynes, The Chronicles of Narnia have been adapted several times, complete or in part, for radio, television, stage, and cinema. In addition to numerous allusions to traditional Christian ideas, the series borrows characters and ideas from Greek and Roman mythology, as well as from traditional British and Irish fairy tales.

The Chronicles of Narnia present the adventures of children who play central roles in the unfolding history of the fictional realm of Narnia, a place where animals talk, magic is common, and good battles evil. Each of the books (with the exception of The Horse and His Boy) features as its protagonists children from our world who are magically transported to Narnia, where they are called upon to help the lion Aslan right some wrong.
