The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe-A must have for your collection

Updated on January 1, 2018

I first read this book when I was a young child and I was hooked from that point on. It has all of the needed elements of a good fiction story, a plot that sweeps you up, the believable characters, and of course how can you say no to epic scenes of good versus evil.

The basic story arc behind the novel is the classic hero's journey. You follow Peter, Lucy, Susan and Edmund as they stumble into a great big world beyond their understanding. This world and its story sweeps them up into whirlwind of danger, adventure and challenges that force them to grow and change as people The main characters in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe are easy to connect with as they exemplify what I feel are the three stages of growing up. Depending on when you first read the story you will feel for one character more than others. Maybe you are like Lucy, a child in reality or maybe just a child at heart that gets lost in the wonder of Narnia and goes on a great adventure with her friend Mr. Tumnus. I once was able to identify with Lucy and she guided me through the magical world of Narnia.

Alas as time has passed and as I have grown older I have begun to identify more with Edmund, the boy who is enchanted by the White Witch. You see how he enters into Narnia a sullen, teenage boy and is captivated by the White Witches beauty and the easy riches she promises him. But you also see how by the end of the story he frees himself from her promises and temptations and become a better person because of it.

But as much as I identify with Edmund now I hope one day that when I read the book once again that I will find that Susan or Peter will be my guide through the story.

As a book to give to your children when they first enter the world of chapter books The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the first on my list and you can be sure that it will be the first one that I give to my children one day. If you have never read the book then add it your collection, you will not regret it.

Guess what goes great with the first book in a series.
