This is not the second book of the Chronicles of Narnia. Why is it labeled wrong?

Colin It is the order in which they were originally published, it was only later that publishers decided to order them in chronological order of events, claiming that this was Lewis' own recommendation, although this is disputed (eg. by CS Lewis expert Alister Mcgrath thinks it is misleading to claim Lewis wanted people to read them in that order).
Suhail Khaled The original publication order is:
1. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (1950)
2. Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia (1951)
3. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952)
4. The Silver Chair (1953)
5. The Horse and His Boy (1954)
6. The Magician's Nephew (1955)
7. The Last Battle (1956)
Heather I don't know why it's labeled incorrectly. It is the 3rd book in publication order and 4th in chronological order.
