It may not be as intense as The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia spin a fantastical tale of magic and wonder. The second book in the series, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe has been made into a feature film by Disney. Get the scoop on the book the movie is based on!


The Land of Narnia

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is the tale of the four Pevensie children, sent to the country to live with their uncle during the second world war. London is being bombed by the Nazis and to keep the children safe they are shipped out of the city. While living with their uncle, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy explore their uncle's giant, old house. One day, while playing a game of hide and seek, they all stumble upon a magical land called Narnia hidden at the back of an old wardrobe.


Family Ties

Lucy Pevensie is actually the first one to find Narnia, but her siblings don't believe her magical story. One night, when she can't sleep, she decides to return to Narnia and is followed by her brother Edmund. Edmund loses Lucy's trail but quickly runs into the White Witch, who claims she is the queen of the land. She offers Edmund the chance to be king, if he will just bring the rest of his siblings to her. When all four Pevensie children wind up in Narnia, Edmund forgets his loyalties fast and ditches his brother and sisters to set off for the witch's castle. He'd rather outshine his older brother than help save a world inhabited by talking animals.


Battle of the Century

Peter, Susan and Lucy have many obstacles to overcome before they can even come close to saving Edmund. Luckily, they meet the great Aslan, who has come back to Narnia to help them on their quest to defeat the White Witch. Aslan is a giant, talking Lion who originally created Narnia. Aslan sends some of his followers to take save Edmund from the grips of the witch's henchmen. When the four Pevensie children are reunited, a battle to end the 100-year winter begins, with Peter leading the way!


The Bottom Line

People of all ages - from your little sister to your grandpa - will enjoy the story of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. There's magic, adventure and a heart-warming lesson. The perfect story to read as a family or on your own, curled up by the fire in the cold winter months!

Regardless of her "I am speeking what I truly think" bit, Im sure she'd agree that some on her side of the debate also model their views on the subject from their parents.   It is not stated in the post directly, it is implied based on the context of the post, considering every post that wasn't theirs since the thread was revived, save one, was disagreeing with them. If I was in a thread, and everybody was disagreeing with me, and then I made a post saying that "You know, I bet most of you are just repeating what your parents said" I think it would be rather obvious what my intentions were.  I was not trying to be rude i was speaking my mind and again if you think i'm lying when i say i'm not just copying what my parents said than again fine i truly don't care. But i was not trying to accuse or be rude in any way shape or form. My intentions were that maybe all us kids are not gonna help our world in the future cause if you noticed we're kind of going down hill. My intentions were that you should have your own opinion not say or think what another person told you you should. Speak your own minds instead of copying what another person told you.Tell me how many people would believe one of those stupid weight loss commercials if the person in the commercial was not say a famous or fairly wealthy person. So my intentions were apparently not clear or you took it the wrong way. So tell me what you think and i'll answer your rude comment or just comment that i was wrong and your right. Your intent did not get across, surely I am not the only one who interpreted it the way I did. I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt that you did not in fact intend to offend anyone, but, it is easily interpreted as deliberately offensive.  I'm worried this is getting off topic now, I think we're done here anyways. I think my point has been made.  As am i.
