Did You Know? (68 Across) C. S. Lewis was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1898. Educated at the University of Oxford, he went on to teach there as professor of Medieval and Renaissance English literature. He is best remembered today, not for the scholarly works he wrote but for a series of children's books, The Chronicles of Narnia, which began publication in 1950 with the first volume: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The series of seven volumes have been adapted to the cinema, radio, stage, and television in various forms over the years. In 2005 Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media released a new version of a film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, following in May 2008 with Prince Caspian, based on the second volume of The Chronicles. The third installment in the Walt Disney film adaptation, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, is scheduled for release in 2010. The remaining volumes in The Chronicles are The Silver Chair; The Horse and His Boy; The Magician's Nephew; and The Last Battle. Release of the film version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in 2005 sparked a surge of book sales of The Chronicles, which had already sold over 100 million copies.
