Short Passage
Then everyone looked in and pulled the coats apart; and the all saw -- Lucy herself saw -- a perfectly ordinary wardrobe.There was no wood and no snow, only the back of the wardrobe, with hooks on it. Peter went in and rapped his knukles on it to make sure that it was solid.
"A jolly good hoax, Lu," he said as he came out again; "you have really taken us in, I must admit. We half-believed you.
"But it wasn't a hoax at all," said Lucy, "really and trully. It was all different a moment ago. Honestly it was. I promise."
"Come Lu," said Peter, "that's going a bit far. You've had your joke. Hadn't you better drop it now?"

Falling Action
On the other hand, Aslan is restored to life and brings Lucy and Susan to the Witch's castle and saves people who are turned into statues. Aslan arrives with the former statues as reinforcements. Aslan's army rout the witch's army, and Aslan kills the White Witch.
The Pevensie children are named kings and queens of Narnia: King Peter the Magnificent, Queen Susan the Gentle, King Edmund the Just, and Queen Lucy the Valiant.
Fifteen years later, the siblings are hunting for a white stag when they find the lamppost in the forest. Beyond it, the branches become coats. They come through the wardrobe in Digory's house and are children again.
When I was a child, I told my mom about fairies and castles I've seen. I know there weren't any fairies nor castles, but I just want my mom to pay attention to me. In the story, Peter, Susan, and Edmund didn't believe Lucy at first. They thought Lucy just wanted their attention, so she came up with the crazy idea of the other world in the wardrobe.
This book is all surrounding the word "brave". I think being brave is a very important thing in the community. There will be a lot of problems and difficulties, but you can't hide from it. You need to face it bravely. Like how Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy did. They didn't go back and left Narnia in danger, they faced the White queen, and defeated her.
My Opinion
I think this book is a very good book, I would love to recommend it to other student.

1. It's a very good story with a nice plot. It also contains a lot of personification. Every animal is like a person, they can talk, fight, and dance. It's very interesting.

2.There are a lot of qualities we can learn from the characters. For example, they are very brave. They are not afraid they will die, and use their lives to protect Narnia.

3.There's a movie with it. After you finish the book, you can make yourself some popcorn and enjoy the movie. And see the difference between the book and the movie.
1. If you were Edmund, will you feel guity? Why?
2. Who is your favorit character? Why?
3. Why do you think the four kids decided to save Narnia at the end?
