The Magic of the Wardrobe
Without the wardrobe, there wouldn’t be a story. But how did it end up in the Professor’s house?
That is a much longer story than what we can fit in a simple e-news, but we’ll give you a hint: Digory Kirk, or the Professor – as he’s called in the LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE – has been to Narnia before.
During his trip to Narnia in the prequel book, the Magician’s Nephew, he received a magic apple. After using the apple to cure his mother’s illness, he planted the core in his backyard. This apple would grow into a tall tree, which would later fall during a storm, and be made into a wardrobe by the Professor.
Of course, to the Professor, it is an ordinary wardrobe, but to Lucy, and later all the other Pevensie siblings…it still carries the magic of that apple from so long ago—the magic of Narnia.
In THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, they will all experience that magic firsthand…
Join the Pevensies on this unforgettable adventure…
