Like a lot of other bloggers I have been to see The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. It was great. It has been a few years since I read the book but I was surprised how closely the film followed the book. The kids were great actors especially Lucy. I also really like the professor and I had been worried the producers might leave him out.

Of course if you want to know why there is a lamp post in Narnia you need to read the first in the series Magician’s Nephew though interestingly enough C.S. Lewis didn’t write this first.(But surely he must have known he was going to? The writer in me wants to know, how did Lewis do that-write a series of books out of order?)Anyway the Magician’s Nephew also explains why the wardrobe leads to Narnia. So I hope I have excited your curiosity if you haven’t already read the whole series.
