On the Second Day of Christmas, Place of Reads Reviews The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

On the Second Day of Christmas, Place of Reads Reviews 
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

We all have those books that we were read as children that we love.  Some we end up re-reading as adults, and others we just fondly remember.  Today, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite books that I remember my mother reading to me.  


When Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy took their first steps into the world behind the magic wardrobe, little do they realise what adventures are about to unfold. And as the story of Narnia begins to unfold, so to does a classic tale that has enchanted readers of all ages for over half a century.

My Review:

If you have never read this book, you are missing out on a classic.  Narnia is a beautiful, fantastical land that is trapped in perpetual winter, with NO CHRISTMAS!  But there is a prophecy about 2 sons of Adam and 2 daughters of Eve coming and breaking the curse laid on Narnia by the White Witch.  When little Lucy accidentally finds the way into Narnia, she kick starts the prophecy towards completion.  

I have always loved this book.  Personally, I've always loved Lucy's character. She is sweet and gentle, but has the heart of a lion.  She is the one that leads her older brothers and sister into Narnia, and even saves Edward.  

In this story, you will meet every fantastical beast and mythological character that you could possibly expect to meet.  This does include meeting Father Christmas (the children save Christmas by allowing Father Christmas back into Narnia).  Another plus to this story is the loving Aslan, the King of Narnia. He is a great Lion who is absolutely fierce and wild, but is willing to sacrifice himself to his betrayer.  

Even though you might like the movies, whether the American version or the BBC version, I highly recommend that you actually read the book!  

Happy Reading,
