AESTHETICS:
The site is well designed and user friendly with soft colors and beautiful illustrations.
ORGANIZATION:
The content is organized into five main areas. The areas are available from a front-page image map. Subsequent pages have a bottom navigation bar.
REVIEW:
Bring the Chronicles of Narnia to life in your classroom by exploring the resources at this site. Biographical information about C. S. Lewis as well as information on how Narnia was created and the illustrators of the Narnia books is available. A discussion of each of the seven books is presented with an online chapter of each. Visitors can also test their Narnia knowledge or become an official Narnia Reader and take a quiz after reading each of the first six books to win the Last Battle as a prize. Interactive maps give users the opportunity to travel the Narnia lands and listen to audio files. Additionally, the Narnians are introduced through illustrations, character sketches and an interactive game, "Who Am I?"
