I’ve a massive treat for you all, to mark World Book Day. Which is today – so if you happen to have seen many strange and magical creatures running around today – it’s not just 2022 throwing another curve ball! It is in fact, our younger humans celebrating literature and the wonders that it brings!
One of my favourite people – he goes by B – yesterday surprised me with a book review of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis. This happens to be one of those books that showed me that I was a reader many many moons ago and I’m thrilled to see that B has similarly enjoyed it!
In fact, he loved it so much, that he dressed up as one of the most important Narnian characters and has very kindly allowed me to share his costume below!
Thanks very much to B for this review!
Book review by: B. – an 8 year old reader and reviewer
Title: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Author: C.S. Lewis
Four siblings are sent to stay with the Professor in the country. They are refugees. Their names are Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy.
What is the book about?
A land called Narnia which the children found in a magic wardrobe. Narnia is a woodland covered in snow. The white witch made it always winter and never Christmas 😦
Narnia is full of creatures that in our world would be called mutant creatures like fauns and talking animals. Mr Tumnus the faun called our world the land of Spare Oom.
There is a prophecy that “when Adam’s flesh and Adam’s bone sit at Cair Paravel in the throne, the evil time will be over and done.”
Aslan is a huge talking lion. He returns to Narnia and so does Father Christmas.
Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy join the battle between Aslan’s forces and the White Witch’s army and Aslan makes them the Kings and Queens of Narnia.
Who would this book be suitable for?
Children that are around my age group (7-39)
I am 8 and I like video games and cars and basically any type of transport. And cats. I know I love lots of things deep down. I like swimming and martial arts. I love reading, music and documentaries.
Would you recommend this book?
Because of all the adventures and battles. It made me feel excited and I didn’t want the book to end. I would love to visit Narnia but I don’t want to live there as it would be lonely as there wouldn’t be many people like me that lived there.
Rating: 5 stars
Huge thanks to B for sharing his thoughts on the book and also his fantastic World Book Day costume – you make an excellent Aslan, my friend!
