Tumnus is the faun in the snowy wood: Various aspects of characters and events in the novel reflect biblical ideas from Christianity. In the battle at the end of the film, visually a great epic treat, the child crusaders are crowned kings and queens for no particular reason.

However, not many British children these days will get the message.


Well, it is hard to say why. He is also the only character to appear in all seven books. He is named King Edmund the Just. She is a classmate and neighbour of Eustace Scrubb. A Talking Horse of Narnia, he wandered into Calormen as a foal and was captured. Yet it is common to hear people say they do not enjoy them as much in adulthood.

The others I enjoyed most were The Voyager of the Dawn Treader, with its plot structure borrowed from The Odyssey, and The Silver Chair, where events go less according to plan and are more unexpected, than elsewhere.

In DecemberBles showed Lewis the first drawings for the novel, and Lewis sent Baynes a note congratulating her, particularly on the level of detail. Narnia is full of secret police and spies, much like Nazi Germany and Russia.

The ape Shift preaches a strange heresy on Stable Hill; the creatures of Narnia have been decieved and frightened by his lies; then the mighty Calormenes strike Cair Paravel. The questionable moral lessons? The Focus on the Family version is also longer, with a full orchestra score, narration, a larger cast of actors, and introductions by Douglas GreshamC.

In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader his role is greatly expanded; he becomes a visionary as well as a warrior, and ultimately his willing self-exile to Aslan's Country breaks the enchantment on the last three of the Lost Lords, thus achieving the final goal of the quest.

Be warned, the film lingers long and lovingly over all this. They go back to being children once they get back to their own world, but feature as adults in The Horse and His Boy during their Narnian reign. Get full reviews, ratings, and advice delivered weekly to your inbox.

Within The Chronicles of Narnia, we have children who enjoy exploring hidden spaces, children tormented by bullies, the youngest child not taken seriously by their elder siblings, the middle-child denied both the attention of younger siblings and the power of older siblings and children wronged by adults in various ways and seeking liberation and self-importance.

Caspian is also a central character in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and appears briefly at the beginning and end of The Silver Chair.

He is an emblem for everything an atheist objects to in religion. Utterly fearless, infallibly courteous, obsessed with honour, he is badly wounded in the final battle but healed by Lucy and Aslan.
