Discovered this as an adult. I can't think how many times I've reread it over the past 40 years!

This is now one of my favorite books. This was an OUTSTANDING fantasy series by C.S. Lewis. The imagery that he used to describe Narnia was breathtaking, the battle scenes were described in vivid detail, and you could really connect with the characters. Forget the Harry Potter series! Pick up the Chronicles of Narnia if you want a story full of adventure, wonder, and humor.

One word. All you’ve been saying is quite right, I shouldn’t wonder. I’m a chap who always liked to know the worst and then put the best face I can on it, So I won’t deny any of what you said. But there’s one thing more to be said, even so. Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all of those things—trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that’s the funny thing, when you come to think of it. We’re just babies making up a game, if you’re right. But four babies paying a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That’s why I’m going to stand by the play world. I’m on Alsan’s side even if there isn’t any Alsan to lead it. I’m going to go on living as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn’t any Narnia.
