Narnia Fan Fiction: Letters to Polly (Part 2)

Here’s my second attempt at Narnian fan fiction. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go on with this, given that Swanwhite already did something quite similar before. However, I noticed that I have a bad habit of not finishing things that I’ve begun, so I decided to finish this off so that I can…

The Lamb in the Last Battle

In The Last Battle, there is an important scene in Chapter 3 where the animals were gathered at the stable. They have just heard the frightening news from Shift (the Ape) who told them that “Aslan” had sold all the Talking Beasts of Narnia to slavery. Of course, if you know the entire story, the…

Like Edmund

Among the four Pevensies, I’ve always liked Edmund the most because it is very easy to relate to his story.

While listening to the Harper-Collins audiobook of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe this morning, I noticed…

Jumbly Quotes from The BFG

If you have no idea who the BFG is, you should check out my previous blog entry here. The BFG is a nice, jumbly giant who “kidsnatched” the orphan Sophie because she saw him by accident.

I is the Big, Friendly Giant! I is the BFG!
