The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

By C.S Lewis

I love this book; it’s my favourite of the seven books in the Narnia series. It was first published in 1950.

It was a boring, rainy day and Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie were stuck inside exploring their caretaker’s house when they decide to play hide and seek. Lucy hid deep in the back of a beautiful old wardrobe and suddenly found herself in the unknown land of Narnia. It’s a place where Trees go into battle, Dwarves can be henchmen, and Fauns (satyrs), like Mr. Tumnus, dance with Tree Nymphs. However, Narnia’s equivalent of an hour is mere seconds in our time! Eventually, all the Pevensie kids found out that the evil White Witch was making it, in Mr. Tumnus’s opinion, “Always winter. Always winter and never Christmas; think of that!”. They also learned that four “daughters of Eve and sons of Adam” were to rule the land . . . if they could defeat the evil White Witch. I liked this book because it has action and lots of fight scenes.

This is a really good series for Christians because in each book there is a hidden biblical story. It was a lot of fun to guess the stories, in my opinion. My favourite character is Lucy. It was originally Susan but something happened in The Last Battle that really did shock me. I didn’t like her much after that.

PS: I was Lucy for Hallowe’en!
