The book we will be discussing today is, you guessed it, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. This book has been loved by all for almost 75 years! Back in 1950, well-renowned author, CS Lewis, wrote this novel. The person responsible for the original fun pictures and illustrations is Pauline Baynes. The genre this novel falls under is fantasy fiction!
In this novel, there are several main characters. The story begins with introducing the main four siblings: Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter Pevensie.
Other characters that play a great role in the outcomes of the Pevensie lives include the White Witch, Mr Tumnus, the Professor, Mr and Mrs Beaver, Dwarf, and Maugrim.
By far the greatest character in this novel is Aslan, the great lion. He is, in fact, a lion but not just any lion. He is the true ruler of the land of Narnia. He has the power of life and death in his very breath. Unlike others who try to rule Narnia, he rules only with nobility, mercy, and justice.

One of the more profound settings in the novel is Cair Paravel. This was where the rulers of Narnia would be found. This could be considered the capital of Narnia. It is pictured as the top image on the next page.
