The lion, the writer, and the search for joy.

Not every author can write about theology, literature, and a talking lion and end up delighting readers for generations. But not every author is C.S. Lewis. This biographical picture book welcomes readers to get to know the man behind Aslan and the magical wardrobe and to experience the joy that fueled his imagination.

Young Clive Staples Lewis once loved wonder and play but was unable to trust God after the death of his mother. He left behind his belief in God and became a soldier and a professor. But he never stopped hoping to find true joy. This unique picture book, narrated by a bespectacled owl, tells the tale of how the man known as Jack embraced Christianity, was surprised by joy, and then used his words and writings to share that joy with the world. 

C.S. Lewis: The Writer Who Found Joy is the second book in the Here I Am! biography series for kids, which highlights fascinating and faithful Christians in history.

“Lewis’s life was like a storybook, and now thanks to Daniel DeWitt, it reads like one, too. Every kid ought to know about Narnia. But knowing more about Lewis himself means knowing more about the God who rescued him—which is how he would have wanted it.”
Andrew Peterson, singer/songwriter, author of The Wingfeather Saga

“C.S. Lewis has captivated me ever since he welcomed me into Narnia as a little girl. Now, Daniel DeWitt has captured the essence of Lewis in an engaging way that welcomes young readers to know the man behind the wonder. I love how Daniel humanizes Jack and so beautifully encapsulates Lewis’s story with such clarity, simplicity, and accuracy. This delightful book is a must have for every young reader and the grown-ups who love them.”
