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!

"Capitalism can be summed up in three words: Power from profit, while this isn't always the intention of capitalism, it is always the result. Communism can be summed up in one statement: Poverty for everyone. I think Socialism - In an authoritarian, conservative sense of course, is a good middle ground. The socialism you see liberals pushing for is not the socialism we want, we want an authoritarian, nationalist, militaristic, state. We want a strong leader, we want conservative and right-wing values instilled in children, we want a religion for the people to follow, we want strong morales, we want a high living standard for the people and a government that will help them when times are hard. We most importantly want to preserve mother nature and our beautiful lands. We need borders, when the world has borders everyone is happier, this is our land that is their land. You see my friend, totalitarianism is the evil you speak of, we are certainly against the red regime and anyone who supports Marxist tyrants. Our racial and cultural identity must be protected from the beast that lurks in the east."
