Favorite Quotes: (1) "'And now we know what it feels like...,' said Edmund with a chuckle. 'Golly it's a bit uncomfortable to know that we can be whistled for like that. It's worse than what Father says about living at the mercy of the telephone.'" (2) "This cheered the boys more than anything. You can't help feeling stronger when you look at a place where you won a glorious victory not to mention a kingdom, hundreds of years ago." (3) "'Aslan,' said Lucy, 'you're bigger.' 'That is because you are older, little one,' answered he. 'Not because you are?' 'I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger.'" (4) "'I do indeed, Sir,' said Caspian. 'I was wishing that I came of a more honorable lineage.' 'You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve,' said Aslan. 'And that is both ho or enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth. Be concern.'"

Why I Chose It: I'm continuing to read through the Chronicles of Narnia.

Other Notes: I think this book is a little more tedious than the others although I like the structure of the story telling. Lucy's initial interaction with Aslan is wonderful and I love the scenes with the Bulgy Bears and the Telmarine lords. Also, the inclusion of Greek mythological figures is interesting.
