Description

This article is from the Children's Books FAQ, by Hilary Morrison, morrison@evol1.mbl.edu with numerous contributions by others.

What order is the Narnia series supposed to be in?

The order that the series was written in is not the same as the order the
books are set in. Lewis himself suggested (in his book "Letters to
Children") that they be read in the order that they happen rather than the
order they were written. The two orders are given below:

Written Order:

1. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
2. Prince Caspian
3. The Voyage of the "Dawn Treader"
4. The Silver Chair
5. The Horse and His Boy
6. The Magician's Nephew
7. The Last Battle

Order of Events:

1. The Magician's Nephew
2. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
3. The Horse and His Boy
4. Prince Caspian
5. The Voyage of the "Dawn Treader"
6. The Silver Chair
7. The Last Battle
