The book was dedicated to C.S Lewis' niece, I think, Lucy. The dedication said something like this "I started this book when you were young enough to read fairy tales, but someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
I used to sit in my closet as a kid, and just wait for the day to come! Clearly it was the wrong closet haha and I had an old wardrobe in my room, no lie. Can't tell you how many times I tried to find Narnia.
I honestly don't know where I'd be without Narnia, but it would be in a place with little to no hope. This series got me threw a lot of heavy stuff and it gave me a hopeful imagination and I could not ask for anything more.
