It Helps Reflect On Our Inner Conflicts
The magic of this book isn’t merely the story of an epic quest, rather the reader’s own personal discovery through the lens of its protagonists in a fantasy parallel universe. What at first feels to be the stuff of brain candy with dynamic and delightful personas like Mr. Tumnas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, and of course the Pevensie siblings becomes a transportive device for readers to inwardly journey and challenge our own darkest corners without the indictment of siding with the cold and heartless Jadis the White Witch.
C.S. Lewis was a prolific author and teacher whose writing style provokes individual reflection without condescension; whose art transcends one-dimensional concepts of philosophy and dogma through this wholly satisfying adventurous allegory for all ages.

It Teaches a Good Lesson on Making Choices
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe shows that there are clear lines between good and evil, but that doesn’t mean you’re lost if you make a bad choice. When Edmund betrays his siblings to the White Witch for the promise of sweets, it’s clear he’s made a selfish decision that leads to the suffering of his family. But that doesn’t mean Edmund has lost all chance for redemption. In fact, by his selfless efforts to do right by his siblings, he becomes one of the greatest heroes by the end.
