Lewis won one award. You can find this in the FAQ section: "The Last Battle won the Carnegie Award, the highest honor for children's literature in the United Kingdom. Also, Winston Churchill offered Lewis a knighthood, but he turned it down."

Lewis made speeches a great deal, since he was a professor and it was his job to lecture.

As for the differences in the book and movie, you can decide that for yourself. Or you can look at the many threads on the subject in the CON forum.

Not only did Lewis lecture to his students, but he was also asked to speak to many groups. For example, during World War II, he gave speeches to the personnel at many Royal Air Force bases.

Read the book and watch the movie. :smile: Then you will know the answer to your question!

But it was no good trying to throttle this hope. It might - really, really, it just might be true. So many odd things had happened already." - from the magician's nephew

A lot of it is the same but a lot was left out due to time constraints. They also added some bits that were not in the book - some of which were good, some not so.
