Subsequent American editions had significantly fewer; the most popular edition which was published between 1970 and 1994 by HarperCollins had only 17 severely cropped illustrations. But I argue that as Lewis only wrote this story based on the story of the crucifixion in many ways that it was not intended as a preachy book. Say ‘ Chronicles of Narnia’ or ‘ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ and many people will say, ‘Oh, the C. S.
