We saw the movie last week and I remarked that I had never read any of the Chronicles of Narnia books, so Emma dug out her copies.

The book is old-fashioned and innocent. It reminds of some of the British books that I read in my childhood, such as the Famous Five.

By way of an enchanted wardrobe, four plucky human children fall into a parallel world, where they are acclaimed as saviors, fulfilling a prophecy. They quickly fall afoul of the evil tyrant, the White Witch, but make their way to Aslan, the noble lion, who eventually saves the day after a noble sacrifice.

Indeed a classic children’s tale.
