On this fascinating trip you will also meet some of Lewiss family members his father Albert, the police court lawyer, his brilliant mother Flora and his funloving brother Warren.

We will travel with the Lewis brothers numerous times by steamship across the Irish Sea, back and forth to England where they were educated. We will join Jack atop a red, doubledecker bus where he meets, of all people, God. And we will bump along in Warrens sidecar as he takes his brother Jack to Whipsnade Zoo, the place where Jack will begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Last but not least, we will even fly with Jack and Joy on an airplane to Greece where they will climb to the top of the Acropolis in Athens only months before Joys death

Lewis tour to England and he was one of the few people in the world who actually lived in The Narnia Cottage in Ireland along with his family. Will stepped through the wardrobe door for the first time when he was 9 years old and he has been studying Lewis?'s life and work for over 35 years. Along the way, he has met a number of people who knew C. S. Lewis as family member, friend, teacher and colleague; from them Will has gleaned fascinating insights into what has made Lewis the bestselling Christian author of all time, outside of the Bible. Will has shared those insights with numerous audiences around the United States and in the Republic of Ireland. Now, in this book, Will relates each of the chapters of Lewis?'s life to one of the Narnia stories themselves and reveals how Lewis?'s life imitated art.Will and his wife, Becky, have been married since 1988 and they have three sons: James, Jonathan and Joshua. Will?'s sons have traveled with him to Narnia on numerous occasions and in many ways; in fact, he read The Professor of Narnia aloud to his boys as it was being written and got their seal of approval. Having read the Narnia stories as a child and talked to countless other children who love Lewis?'s fairy tales, Will knows how much every young person who reads the Narnia books or has seen the blockbuster movies wants to know more about C.S. Lewis, the author of these delightful stories. This book is perfect for reading aloud, as Will did to his boys or you can read it by yourself in a cozy corner with a hot cup of tea or cocoa. The reading level is ideal for older children and teenagers. Will makes the life of the awesomely intellectual C. S. Lewis accessible to young people without ever talking down to his readers. Every child, teenager, family or class of students who reads this book will enjoy traveling in the footsteps of Jack, with Will as a fatherly friend leading the way. So come along for the ride and you may even get to meet the great lion Aslan himself.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Adolescent Biography for All Ages  Aug 11, 2009
I'm usually skeptical of books written with a younger audience in mind because they sometimes have a tendency to sound patronizing or condescending. However, Will Vaus wholly succeeds in The Professor of Narnia. His prose is so fluid and the biographical anecdotes are so interesting that it is very easy to read this book in one sitting. I have read Sayer's biography on Lewis as well as Green and Hooper's. I think the most surprising thing about The Professor of Narnia is Vaus provides a more complete picture of Lewis rather than simply repeating what previous biographers have said, which is by no means an easy task. This book is especially good for American readers who are often not as familiar with the British academic system or often times do not have a good grasp of British culture in general. This book should appeal to anyone between the ages of 9 and 99; that is to say, that although it is intended for a young audience, anyone interested in learning about the life of Lewis will find this book thoroughly entertaining. Lewis puts it best in his essay "On Stories," "No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty." This is one of those books.

"This is the perfect biography of C.S. Lewis for children... The boys and girls who read this biography will not only know how Lewis spent his time, but will know in their bones what it felt like to be the man whose dreams of lions led to the creation of Narnia."
-Walter Hooper, Former Secretary of C.S. Lewis-

"Will Vaus has crafted a wise and winsome book sure to delight readers of all ages; Professor Lewis would be pleased indeed."
-Bruce Edwards, Editor of C.S. Lewis: Life, Works and Legacy-

"Finally there is a definitive biography of C.S. Lewis that will appeal to all the young fans of The Narnia Chronicles. Will Vaus has written Lewis's story interspersed with incidents from The Chronicles with just the right touch to answer all their youthful curiosity, and that includes the young in heart also."
-Dr. Clara Sarrocco, Secretary of The New York C.S. Lewis Society-

"A true Narnian and C.S. Lewis scholar, Will Vaus will delight everyone who reads The Professor of Narnia."
-Robert Velarde, Author of Conversations with C.S. Lewis-
