What is Narnia?
The quote in Final Jeopardy! was spoken by the Faun in the great C. S. Lewis work The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
While The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe was the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia, it was not first chronologically; The Magician’s Nephew came first. This has led to a long-standing debate as to which book should be read first!
Which order do you prefer reading The Chronicles of Narnia in, publication order (starting with The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe), or Narian historical order, starting with The Magician’s Nephew? Leave a comment!
Another fun fact: My elementary school librarian, when I was in grade 3, adapted The Magician’s Nephew into a school play. I was Aslan. That librarian, Bev Matson, was such an inspiration for myself and so many others when it came to literature. I’ll expand on this point a little bit more in a post tomorrow.
Needless to say, I got tonight’s Final Jeopardy! instantly.
