Read in July, 2008 — I own a copy , read count: 4-5

Every time I read this wonderful story, it's like catching up with an old friend. I've read this particular Narnia book so many different times, but it never ever gets old. I love the fact that I can pick up this (or any of the other Narnia books, for that matter) and step into a whole other world. I also particularly enjoyed the fact that I found that I could relate with each one of the children, although I must say that I was partial to Lucy! Additionally, I love the role Aslan plays in this book because I think the ultimate sacrifice that he chooses to make shows how innately good he is. Even though this book is an easy read for me now at 18, this is one of those kinds of stories that you can never grow too old for. I really liked the line C.S. Lewis wrote in his dedication: "But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again." Isn't that the truth? Overall, I'd definitely have to call this a classic that everyone should read at some point or another.

Cheryl Knights Yes I adored these books, I used to use them as a real escape when I was little I would immerse myself in Narnia. I wanted to produce the same escape for others as I got older and have
written a book called The Cooper Chronicles. It is full of adventure and escapism. I wrote it for Harry Potter age group, but have had many positive responses from older adults enjoying it. If you get a chance Jess, I would love for you to read it and give me your feedback. I am currently writing a sequel. You can purchase it as
book or hardcover on
