living in: the lion, the witch and the wardrobe

by amym

The holidays have come and gone. No more presents, no more cookies, no more twinkly lights — just an endless abyss of winter ahead. No story captures the magic of the never-ending cold months quite like The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, where after all, it’s been winter for a hundred years. The book held me spellbound as an elementary schooler, but I hadn’t revisited it since my school bus days. Unsurprisingly, the magic still holds. — Amy Merrick

The second roundup and set of stills continue after the jump . . .

A perfect blend of grown-up English countryside and little-girl kooky animal houses, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe scratches all my stylistic itches. A stately manor, a beaver dam — I’d be happy in either. As long as there are fur coats and fistfuls of Turkish delight.
