- Author C. S. Lewis
I’ve read this before but had to zip through it again as part of the Big Read list I’m working through. It’s a super quick read, aimed at adventurous young children, and it tells a pretty good story. It’s in the same vein as Enid Blyton - a group of kids end up on an adventure that they hadn’t really planned for, and often end up thinking how hungry they are along the way.
But it’s got quite a serious side to it as well: the betrayal by Edmund (far too soon forgiven, if you ask me), Aslan’s sacrifice (so vividly described) and an overall war. The kids are very quick to accept the throne, forgetting all about their family back home, but still it’s a fun story overall.
