    This book reveals information not written about before – like the complex and long-term relationship with Janie Moore and those previously unexplored links for C.S. Lewis between Salterstown, Annagassan, Drogheda and Louth. It also brings back memories of the Chronicles of Narnia, beloved by children. In this year the 60th year of his death this excellent book gives us lots of information, pictures and enjoyable reading. It is a well produced book and I highly recommend it.
