Happy Birthday C.S. Lewis

The first time I was introduced to the magical world of Narnia was back in 1995, when my fifth grade teacher, Mr. Adams, read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe with us. Followed by a viewing of the BBC mini series.

Never had I heard of secret wardrobes, friendships with gentle and caring fauns or eating meals with talking beavers. I'd never been exposed to such wonder and enchantment before. I was amazed, fascinated and instantly fell in love with it. 

The genius behind this magical world was C.S. Lewis. It was only a few years ago that I discovered this book was part of a seven book series. I bought the entire series in a Special Edition version; one massive book with all seven stories in them. Fully equipped with a map of Narnia and it's surrounding countries. I've read the first three novels so far. They are written in an old fashioned style which can often make it a bit of a tedious read but they are still pretty awesome! 

So let's all grab our Turkish delight and celebrate this wondrous occasion! 

I close by saying: Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia!
