The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

The Lion, the Witch and the WardrobeThe Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a book that my parents read to each other while I was in utero and which has been a regular feature of my life ever since. I have enjoyed it in primary school and high school and it continues to delight into adulthood. It is great read out loud and I’ve enjoyed it with family, housemate C and , most recently, college friends during our once-a-week ‘Storytime’! The story of four siblings who step into a wardrobe and so into the land of Narnia, where animals speak and a wicked witch makes it always winter and never Christmas, it is delightful both as a story and as an allegory of the gospel.  It deals with betrayal, redemption and sacrifice, as the lion Aslan, the true ruler of Narnia, gives his life to rescue Narnia from the witch’s rule.
