This book is like its own Narnia, a transport into something magical
The real world is boring; it’s mundane, unimaginative, and dry. So humans create fantasy as a means of escape. We watch movies or go to the theatre to see something more interesting than the standard realities of the everyday. We paint pictures and gaze up at the stars. We play video games and roleplay. We dream. Authors like C.S Lewis and J.K Rowling show us this miserable world; they show us its tones of grey. Then underneath it all, they reveal something spectacular: they reveal fantasy.

So we have four rather ordinary children about to embark on an extraordinary adventure. As a child, I used to always daydream. I’ve always been somewhat introverted and would prefer imagining faraway places than existing in the now. I still do this as an adult.

And this is why I love fantasy so much because it is so immersive; it takes my mind away. Lucy, Susan, Edward, and Peter are the lucky ones. When they stumble across the wardrobe, the gateway into a more interesting realm, they experience something spectacular.
