The Magician's Nephew

The events in The Magician's Nephew take place in 1900.
Chronologically, this is the first book of the series because it
describes how Narnia was created. The whole adventure begins one day
in England when a 12 year old boy named Digory peers over a wall and
meets a little girl named Polly Plummer. One day, they accidently
find themselves in the secret attic study of Digory's eccentric
Uncle Andrew, a dabbler in magic. By tricking Polly into touching a
special ring he has created out of magic dust, Uncle Andrew sends
Polly off into a place called the Wood Between the Worlds. Bravely
deciding to rescue her, Digory follows with another magic ring, and
two different ones to bring them back. The two children discover
that through dozens of small pools in this drowsy, quiet woodland
they can enter various other worlds. Diving into one of the pools
they find themselves in Charn, a dead world where everyone,
including Jadis the Witch, is frozen into immobility by means of an
enchantment. Digory, insatiably curious, strikes a tiny bell which
wakes the Witch. By grabbing hold of Digory, she comes back with
them to England-much to the children's dismay!

After causing havoc with Uncle Andrew and his sister, as well as the
police and a cabby (English taxi driver), the Witch is yanked back
into still another world by Digory and a magic ring. Unfortunately,
Polly, Andrew, the Cabby and his horse Strawberry are also
transported into this new world of Nothing- nothing, that is, until
they hear the voice of a magnificent Lion who sings life into being
and gradually creates a world before their eyes: sun, flowers,
grass, beasts. Two of each animal are chosen by the Lion to be
Talking Beasts and set over all the other animals. The Cabby's wife,
Helen, is summoned into Narnia, soapsuds still on her arms, and she
and the Cabby become the first King and Queen of Narnia, for in that
land only humans can rule.

Meanwhile, Digory is sent on the task of getting an apple from a
hill far away in the Western Wilds. He is provided with aid from
Polly and Strawberry-who has now become Fledge, a Flying Horse. When
they arrive at the garden, Digory again encounters Jadis, who tempts
him convincingly to eat an apple as she is doing. Although Digory is
certainly hungry and also desperately wishes to take an apple back
to his mother to cure her of her illness, he does not submit to the
witch's enticement but obediently returns with an apple to Aslan the
Lion. From this apple comes the Tree of Protection which guards
Narnia against the Witch for many years. Aslan rewards Digory's
obedience and patience by presenting him with an apple which
wonderfully cures his mother. The seed of this apple grows into a
tree in England, from the wood of which Digory later builds a magic

During the years that follow, 41 earth years and 1000 Narnian years
pass before humans return to Narnia, and, according to Lewis's
outline, several events occur involving surrounding countries. King
Frank and Queen Helen's youngest son, Col, leads followers into
Archenland, which lies just south of Narnia, and becomes its first
king. Then outlaws from Archenland set up a kingdom further south,
called Calormen. The Calormenes, in turn, colonize Telmar (to the
west of Narnia), but behave so wickedly that Aslan turns them into
dumb beasts. The Lone Islands in the Great Sea east of Narnia are
given to King Gale as his reward for delivering the inhabitants from
a dragon. Then, 898 Narnian years after its creation, Jadis returns
out of the North and the long winter begins.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The events in this book take place 1000 Narnian years after the
creation of Narnia, or the year 1940 in England. By now Digory is
old professor Kirke, and the four Pevensie children-Peter, Edmund,
Susan, and Lucy-come to stay with him to get away from the air-raids
in London. One day, Lucy, hiding in the professor's magic wardrobe,
accidentally discovers, not the expected back wall of the closet,
but the crunch of snow underfoot and lines of dark fir trees ahead
of her. She meets a faun, Mr. Tumnus, who explains that this is
Narnia, a land where it is always winter and never Christmas because
of the reign of the White Witch. When Lucy returns home, however, it
is not only the exact same moment as when she entered, but, worse,
none of her brothers and sisters believe her story of entering

Next, Edmund accidentally enters Narnia through the same wardrobe
and unfortunately encounters the Witch herself, who appears to him
exceedingly beautiful. Enticing him with Turkish Delight and the
promise of being King of Narnia, she convinces him to return,
bringing the others with him for her to destroy, for a prophecy says
that when four humans gain the throne, her reign will be ended.
Edmund returns to the professor's house but, having become
increasingly nasty from his contact with the Witch, refuses to admit
that Lucy was right about Narnia all along.

Finally, all four children enter the wardrobe one day. They discover
that Mr. Tumnus has been punished for disobeying the Witch, and a
robin leads them to Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, who help them. The Beavers
explain that Aslan, King of Narnia and of all the Beasts-the Great
Lion himself-is on the move and has returned to Narnia, and all four
children experience totally different reactions to his name. Peter,
Susan and Lucy decide to hurry to Aslan as soon as possible. Edmund,
however quietly slips off to find the Witch, only to discover that
she seems quite a different person than before. Horrified that Aslan
has returned, she wildly sets off in her sledge, dragging with her
poor, cold, hungry Edmund. All around them Springtime gradually but
steadily reverses the frozen enchantment which has paralyzed Narnia
for 100 years. Celandines, crocuses, primroses, laburnums, bluebells
all begin to bloom-and in the very same order as they bloom in our
own world!

The three children reach Aslan in time to be ensnared in a brief
battle in which Peter bravely kills the Witch's chief, Fenris Ulf,
and Edmund is rescued. He ashamedly asks forgiveness but, according
to the Deep Magic, the law of the Emperor-Over-Sea, he must be
killed as a traitor. Aslan offers to be sacrificed instead. Lucy and
Susan then watch that terrible scene when Aslan willingly submits
himself to the mockery and jests of the Witch's horrible lackeys and
is stabbed with a Stone Knife on the great Stone Table.

But Aslan knew that according to a Deeper Magic, if a willing and
perfect victim were sacrificed in a traitor's stead, the Witch would
not only lose her claim on the individual, but death would start
working backwards. While Lucy and Susan are mourning his death,
Aslan opens his eyes, leaps from the broken table and appears to the
girls more vibrant and alive than ever, romping joyously with them
to the castle. Aslan breathes on every statue of a creature frozen
by the Witch and frees them, leading them all in a victorious battle
against the Witch and her forces. Peter becomes High King of Narnia
and the three other children, Kings and Queens. They rule in Narnia
for 15 Narnian years. During their reign, the next story takes

The Horse and His Boy

A boy named Shasta, living in Calormen with Arsheesh the fisherman,
discovers one day that Arsheesh is not his real father. In fact, he
overhears him bargaining to sell him to a Tarkhan, or great lord. He
decides to fly to the north to Narnia with the Tarkhan's horse Bree,
a Narnian Talking Horse, who was stolen from his homeland. In an
effort to outrun what they believe are several lions pursuing them,
Shasta and Bree overtake Hwin, another Narnian Talking Horse, and
her rider Aravis. Aravis is a Calormen "princess" who is also
running away to escape a distasteful marriage to an old lord.

To get to Narnia, the group must pass in disguise through the
Calormen capital of Tashbaan. Shasta becomes separated from the
others when the visiting Narnian King Edmund and Queen Susan mistake
him for the Prince Corin. Shasta is taken to their quarters where he
overhears Susan's plot to secretly escape Calormen instead of
marrying Rabadash. Shasta comes face-to-face with his lookalike,
Corin, who helps him escape. He awaits the others at the designated
meeting place, the deserted Tombs of the Ancient Kings outside the
city. There a giant Cat comforts and protects him at night.

Meanwhile, Aravis is aided by an old but silly friend, Lasaraleen,
another Calormen "princess." By accident, the two girls overhear
Rabadash's plans to win Susan by conquering Archenland and later
Narnia. Lasaraleen helps Aravis escape the city, and she and Shasta
and their two horses are once again reunited. Quickly they begin the
tiring and lengthy journey north, over the mountains, the desert,
and a valley. During the ride, a Lion snaps at the horses and
scratches Aravis on the back. While a Hermit cares for Aravis and
the horses, a tired and disheartened Shasta must travel on alone to
Archenland and warn King Lune of Rabadash's plans.

He alerts Lune, but gets separated for a time from his army. That
night, lost on a mountain pass, Shasta is joined by a giant Shadow
in the darkness, who explains to him that all along there has been
but one Lion who has protected him, spurred him on to his duty, and
even helped a boat bring him to Calormen as a baby. Shasta
recognizes the glory of Aslan himself, and refreshed by a tiny
stream Aslan provides for him, Shasta sets off in the morning.

He rejoins the battle, though wounded during most of it. Rabadash's
army is soundly defeated and Aslan punishes Rabadash by turning him
into a donkey if he strays from Tash's temple. Shasta learns that he
is the twin brother of Corin, stolen as a baby because of a prophecy
that he would one day save Archenland. He eventually becomes King
Cor of Archenland.

One day after they have long been reigning in Narnia, the four Kings
and Queens set out to hunt for the White Stag. Upon discovering the
very same lamp- post where they entered Narnia, they return home
through the wardrobe to find that no time has elapsed since they

Many years after the children leave Narnia, the Telmarines invade
and conquer it and Caspian I becomes King. The Telmarines silence
the Talking Beasts and spread false rumors about Aslan and the "Old
Narnia." One of Caspian's descendants, Caspian IX, is murdered by
his own brother Miraz, who usurps the throne. Caspian X is born, and
the story of his attempts to defeat his wicked uncle and restore the
Old Narnia is told in the next book.

Prince Caspian

Young Caspian, raised by his uncle Miraz, is told the real story of
his past by his tutor, Dr. Cornelius, who is part Dwarf. Caspian
runs away in order to find the Old Narnian Talking Beasts. He meets
Trufflehunter the badger, the dwarfs Nikabrik and Trumpkin, and
eventually, many other Narnian beasts. At the Council of Dancing
Lawn, the small army of Narnian creatures plan to make war on Miraz.
After minor skirmishes and defeats, Caspian decides to blow the
magic horn that will send for help. Though skeptical, Trumpkin
offers to journey to Cair Paravel, once the Narnian capital, to
await the possible return of the four Kings and Queens.

Thus, just one year after the Pevensies had returned to England,
they find themselves "pulled" back into Narnia by the blast of
Caspian's horn. But they are horrified to find that 100 years have
passed since they were last in Narnia. Trumpkin, on the other hand,
cannot believe that these four children are the help they had been
awaiting and has to be convinced that they are indeed royal

As the group travels to the meeting place at Aslan's How, they find
that after all these years the landmarks and terrain of Narnia are
so altered that they get lost. Aslan appears to Lucy and points the
way, but the rest of the children stubbornly continue in the
opposite direction. Naturally, they reach a dead end, barely miss a
confrontation with Miraz's forces, and must re-track to where they
started. Aslan appears to Lucy once more and, though the others
cannot see him, this time they grudgingly follow his leading. One by
one, each child begins to see the Great Lion guiding them easily to
the How.

Arriving just in time to overhear Nikabrik's plan to call on the
Witch for aid, they defeat him and his evil cohorts, a werewolf and
a hag, in hand-to-hand combat. Next, Peter challenges Miraz to a
duel, and Sopespian and Glozelle, Miraz's lords, dupe their monarch
into accepting. The duel culminates in a battle between both armies;
Miraz is killed and his army defeated. Aslan leads a band of joyous
revellers (including Bacchus himself!) through the villages,
celebrating Caspian's restoration to the throne. Then Aslan prepares
a doorway in the sky for the Telmarines who wish to return to their
homeland in the South Seas. Peter and Susan sadly learn that they
are now too old ever to return to Narnia, and all four children step
through the doorway, back into their own world.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Three Narnian years and one earth year pass before Lucy and Edmund
are called back to Narnia. The two Pevensie children are staying
with their bumptious young cousin, Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and one
day all three are drawn into a picture on Eustace's wall into
Narnia's Eastern Sea and Caspian's ship, the Dawn Treader. Caspian,
they learn, is setting out for the Eastern Islands to find seven of
his father's lost lords who long before were sent off by his evil
uncle, Miraz, on a voyage of exploration. On the journey too is
Reepicheep, King of the Talking Mice and most valiant of the beasts
of Narnia. He is seeking Aslan's country at the End of the World.
Eustace is miserably seasick and indignant at the whole affair, but
the Pevensie children eagerly anticipate a new adventure.

Their first stop after several days of sailing is the island of
Felimath where they find the first lost lord, Lord Bern. Felimath is
one of the Lone Islands, and although Lewis hints that he would like
to tell their story in another book, we learn no more about them.
The children are captured by slave traders, but Caspian is bought by
Lord Bern, who, on learning Caspian is Narnia's king, helps them
plan their escape. Felimath is ruled by an incompetent and bumbling
man named Gumpas, the stereotyped politican who sticks solely to
statistics, graphs, and appointments on his calendar. By feigning to
have an entire fleet of forces, Caspian overthrows Gumpas and
declares Lord Bern ruler of the Lone Islands. After nearly three
weeks on Felimath, the little company leaves to continue its
mission. Twenty six days later, badly damaged by a storm, the ship
and its crew find haven on an island which they dub Dragon Island.
In order to escape work, Eustace wanders off and comes upon a dying
dragon. But Eustace, who has read all the wrong books, has no idea
what the creature is. Taking shelter in the dragon's cave, Eustace
discovers a cache of magnificent treasures and, after slipping a
bracelet on his arm and cramming his pockets full of precious
things, he falls asleep. But when he awakens, feeling not quite
himself, he finds he is walking on all fours and breathing smoke.
Peering into a stream, he discovers he has turned into a dragon!

When the others figure out what has happened, they find their
cousin's plight has much improved him, causing him to become more
helpful and reasonable. Then one night Aslan appears and orders
Eustace to follow him. After Eustace unsuccessfully attempts to
remove his skin by shedding it like a banana peel, Aslan tears off
the last layer of painful scales and bathes him in a clear pool,
restoring him to true boyhood. Thereafter, Eustace's behavior is
markedly changed. The children deduce that Lord Octesian was
probably the other dragon or had been destroyed by the dragon.

After the Dawn Treader visits Burnt Island (which has been ravaged
by fire) the crew battles a fearful Sea Serpent who almost engulfs
the ship. Five days of sailing bring them to Deathwater Island,
where the crew discovers a pool which turns anything dropped in it
to gold. Lord Restimar, they realize, must have bathed in this water
and been turned into a gold "statue." When they begin to quarrel
over the great possibilities of capitalizing on the wealth this
magic pool would give, Aslan sternly appears to bring them to their
senses. On the next island, the Island of the Voices, Lucy is asked
by the Dufflepuds, strange creatures who hop around on one
umbrella-like foot, to find a spell to "de-uglify" them. To
accomplish this, she must go into a Magician's House and read his
Magic Book. Among other things, Lucy finds a spell to make herself
beautiful, a wonderful story about a cup, sword and green hill, as
well as a spell to let her know what her friends think of her. When
Lucy says this spell, Aslan appears to her. He introduces her to the
Magician, who turns the invisible Dufflepuds into visible Monopods.

Then, for thirteen days they sail for the Dark Island where
nightmarish dreams come true. There, the group discovers haggard and
white-haired Lord Rhoop, and Aslan appears as an albatross to guide
them out. At World's End Island, the group finds the last three of
the lost lords- Revilian, Argoz and Mavramorn-sleeping at a
sumptuous banquet table. There they also meet Ramandu, a "retired"
star, and his beautiful daughter. This is Aslan's Table where the
food, renewed daily, is served for those who travel this far. The
three lords had quarreled over the sacred Stone Knife (once used by
the White Witch to stab Aslan). At the moment they touched it they
had been cast into an enchanted sleep.

All but one sailor set off for the End of the World. The light grows
brighter and brighter, the sea smoother and white with lilies, and
the water, clear and luminous like "drinkable light," keeps the
group nourished and unwearied. Quivering with excitement, Reepicheep
sails off alone to Aslan's Country. Now, after a year of travelling,
Caspian regretfully decides to turn back with the ship to Narnia.
The three children meet Aslan who appears to them first as a Lamb,
then a Lion, and promises them that they can come to his land from
all worlds and will know him even better in their own. Through a rip
in the sky, they return to Cambridge. Thus ends Lucy's and Edmund's
last adventure in Narnia. Caspian returns to Narnia to marry
Ramandu's daughter three years after his voyage. Fifteen years later
a son, Rilian, is born. One day, as Ramandu's daughter is riding in
Narnia she stops to rest. A Green Serpent stings her, and she dies.
Twenty year old Rilian sets off to avenge her death and, entranced
by a beautiful lady dressed in green, is not heard from again,
though many seek for him. Ten years later, Eustace and his
schoolmate Jill Pole are called into Narnia to find Rilian.

The Silver Chair

Although it is still 1942, the year of the Dawn Treader voyage, 70
Narnian years have now passed since Eustace visited Narnia.
Miserably unhappy and desperate to leave their school, Experiment
House, Jill and Eustace enter Narnia through a gate in the wall.
They find themselves high on a precipice in Aslan's country,
overlooking all of Narnia. After Eustace accidently tumbles off the
cliff and floats away, Jill finds herself alone with Aslan. Their
task, she learns, is to find the lost Rilian, which they will
accomplish only if they obey four "signs": First, they will meet an
old, dear friend whom they must greet if they are to receive help,
then they must journey from Narnia north to a ruined giant city
where they will find writing on a stone. They must do what it says.
Prince Rilian will be recognized by the fact that he will be the
first person who asks them to do something in Aslan's name. Jill is
then blown softly on Aslan's sweet breath to Narnia where she
rejoins Eustace.

Caspian, now 66 and thus unrecognizable by Eustace, is preparing to
sail to Terebinthia in hopes of finding Aslan and seeking his
advice. Glimfeather the Owl carries the children first to Cair
Paravel, then to a Parliament of Owls where they are briefed on
Rilian's story, then North to the swampy home of a gloomy, lanky,
frog-like creature named Puddleglum, a Marshwiggle who becomes a
member of their team.

On their mission of search and rescue the three head north to
Ettinsmoor, the land of the giants. A lovely lady, the Lady of the
Green Kirtle who is accompanied by an armored knight, advises them
to press on to the giant city of Harfang where they will receive
food and shelter. Against Puddleglum's better judgment, the children
desperately insist on finding the city to get relief from the
bitter, snowy cold. Through a series of ruins and trenches, they
reach the castle where they are welcomed, fed and bathed. Aslan
appears to Jill in a dream and shows her the inscription UNDER ME
written outside on the ruins. When the three discover that the
giants mean to have them as the main course of their Autumn Feast,
they slip through a crack in the ruins-the third sign. They now
realize they have muffed the first three signs.

Beneath the earth, they descend through tunnel after dark tunnel
into a strange land where the varied faces of Earthmen sadly and
silently labor in the city. Among a variety of creatures, they even
see Father Time himself sleeping until the world's end. They are
taken to the castle of a Green Witch, who boasts: "Though under
Earth and throneless now I be, Yet, while I lived, all Earth was
under me." She is the cruel ruler of this country called the
ShallowLands. In her castle also lives a knight (Rilian himself) who
the witch has promised will be King of Overland once the Earthmen
dig through to the surface. During one hour of every day, however,
he is under a spell by which he becomes enraged and is transformed
into a serpent. Daily, during this hour, the Witch binds him to a
silver chair. The children fearfully watch as the awful change comes
over him- and then he bids them in Aslan's name to free him!
Recognizing the last sign as well as the danger of obeying it, the
three nevertheless unbind the Prince, who destroys the awful chair.

The Witch returns to discover what has been done and causes a drowsy
smoke and music to fill the room, enchanting them into believing
there is no other world but hers. But stout-hearted Puddleglum
stamps out the fire and, after renouncing her world, leads Caspian
into killing the Witch as she turns into a snake. Noisy fireworks
signal the Earthmen's glee at the end of the Witch's hold over them.
Golg, a gnome, explains that beneath the Witch's land is the Really
Deep Land of Bism, inhabited by gnomes and salamanders-a fiery world
of live gems and a delicious smell. The gnomes dive into that realm
through a crack before a shift in the earth closes it forever.

Through one of the tunnels to the Overworld, the four escape the
Witch's Realm to discover that they are back in Narnia itself! They
are rescued by Dwarfs performing the Great Snow Dance. Riding on
centaurs, the children arrive in time to see Rilian greeting his
sick father's returning ship. Although Caspian dies, the children
are taken to Aslan's country where, on Aslan's Mountain, they
witness Caspian's restoration to life with a drop of blood from the
great Lion's paw. Promising that some day they too will return to
stay forever, Aslan leads them triumphantly back to their school,
where he terrifies the children and Headmistress so badly that there
is a grand shake-up and Experiment House ends up as a much better
school! Other than the uprising of outlaws in Lantern Waste and the
building of towers to guard the region, we know little of the 199
years of Narnian history between The Silver Chair and the final

The Last Battle

During the final days of Narnia, Shift the Ape who lives near
Lantern Waste finds a lion's skin in the water. He convinces his
poor, gullible donkey follower Puzzle to put it on and pose as
Aslan. Then he spreads false rumors that Aslan has returned and
aggressively demanded changes in Narnia-trees felled, Talking
Animals driven to work, Dwarfs and animals sold as slaves to the
Calormenes. The Narnians begin to believe that Aslan is not at all
like the Lion they have heard about in stories and legends.

Meanwhile, King Tirian of Narnia, seventh in descent from Rilian,
and his dear friend Jewel the Unicorn hear of all these changes and
believe them to be lies. Tirian angrily murders two Calormenes and
is captured. Desperate and only half- believing that the changes are
from Aslan, he calls for help from the past Kings and Queens. In a
dream he sees all seven "friends" of Narnia-Digory and Polly (now in
their sixties), Peter, Edmund, Lucy, Jill and Eustace -eating around
a table. Immediately, Jill and Eustace (now teen-agers) appear
before him rescuing not only Tirian, but Jewel and Puzzle as well.

During this time much has happened on earth: Digory and Polly,
feeling that they are somehow "needed" in Narnia, hold a sort of
"reunion" for all who have been to Narnia. Peter and Edmund are sent
to London to dig up the magic rings Digory used many years ago to
first enter Narnia and are scheduled to meet the train to hand them
over. Jill, Eustace, Digory, Polly, Lucy, and, it so happens, Mr.
and Mrs. Pevensie, all go on the same train which crashes at the
station, killing all of them, as well as Peter and Edmund. At that
moment (nearly one earth week after seeing Tirian), Aslan brings
Jill and Eustace into Narnia "in his own way."

Tirian and the children optimistically determine to explain the
ape's deception to the Narnians and restore the old order. However,
all Dwarfs except Poggin bitterly refuse to believe in anything but
themselves. After Tirian's group sees the nightmarish, birdlike
Calormen god, Tash, flying toward Shift's camp, they join forces
with a meager band of loyal Narnians led by Roonwit, the centaur.
Cair Paravel, he reports, has been taken over by the enemy. Thus
they hurry to Shift's camp, hoping to reveal the truth to the

They find that Shift has set up a stable where the Narnians gather
at night by a giant bonfire. His new cohorts, Rishda the Calormen
captain and Ginger the Cat, have now convinced the Narnians that
Aslan and Tash are the same. Ginger and the Ape frustrate all their
hopes of unmasking the imposter by telling the Narnians that there
is a donkey loose, masquerading as Aslan. Ginger the Cat cockily
enters the Stable expecting to find nothing, but instead finds Tash
and shoots out again, terrified out of speech. This of course
fulfills Aslan's prophecy (given many years earlier when Narnia was
created) that Talking Beasts would return to dumb beasts if they
chose evil. A Calormen named Emeth bravely goes in next in hopes of
meeting Tash and never returns.

The real battle then begins. While the dogs and moles join Tirian's
side, the Dwarfs fight for themselves. In vast confusion as the
enemy presses in on them, Eustace is hurled into the Stable,
followed by all eleven dwarfs, Rishda (taken by Tash), and Tirian.
But instead of finding the fearful god Tash in the Stable, as he had
feared, Tirian sees the seven glorious Kings and Queens of Narnia
and Aslan himself standing before him. Beyond the Stable door he has
entered a luscious, green and fragrant country. The Dwarfs, however,
see only darkness, hear Aslan's voice as an angry snarl, and taste
rotten food instead of the sumptuous banquet he spreads for them.

Aslan shows all the Kings and Queens that Narnia on the other side
of the Stable Door is ending. First, Father Time is called to blow
his horn, and the living stars fall gleaming to the ground. Next,
all the animals stream to Aslan and either pass through the Door if
they love him, or to his left and into his Shadow if they fear him.
Giant dragons and lizards then devour the vegetation, and the sea
rises to cover it all. The sun and moon turn red, flame into each
other, and Father Time squeezes the burning ball like an orange
until all is dark. Finally, Peter locks the door on Narnia-icy, cold
and void.

Aslan then leads them "further up and further in" through the Stable
Door to his own country. There they find not only the fragrant,
green land they had always longed for, and discover their own bodies
to be full of life and vigor, but they see all the old friends they
had ever known or heard about. Susan, however, is not among them for
she is "no longer a friend of Narnia." On the other hand, Emeth the
Calormen is there, for he had always sought the truth. They scale
the Great Waterfall and enter the golden gates of a garden with a
tree at its center. Far below, Narnia and England stretch out like
spurs jutting off from the mountains of Aslan's country. But they
are the real Narnia and England-those which they had known before
were only imitations. The children are now ready to begin the Great
Story Lucy had once read about in the Magician's Magic Book, a story
which goes on forever!
