Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.
― C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

I am sad to say that I have never read The Chronicles of Narnia until now.  I started with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and have fallen in love with this story.  I have long been a fan of C.S. Lewis and appreciate his imagination and his desire to help people see the love of Christ through excellent and engaging literature.  I didn’t highlight anything while reading this book and have no notes to post below.  I simply read the story for what it is and enjoyed watching the way that Aslan (the character representing Christ) came in to right what was wrong.  The faithfulness of God and redemption are clear themes in this story.  I’m grateful for the chance to experience the truth of God’s word woven creatively into an engaging children’s story that I can share with my kids!
