Have you seen the film The Lion, the Witch and the
Wardrobe’? Read the e-mail with the beginning of the film
review and say what Alice promises to give Christie.
How are you? Are you still in bed with a high temperature?
I hope you are much better now and we’ll meet up soon.
Yesterday, I went to the cinema with Brett and his classmates. The film
was wonderful! I liked it very much. Would you like to know what the
film is about? I am going to give you a short review.
During the Second World War, four children, Peter, Susan, Edmund
and Lucy, came from London to the country house of Professor Digory
Kirke, their mother’s relative. He had no wife and he lived in a very
large house with a housekeeper.
While the children were playing hide-and-seek, Lucy discovered a
wardrobe and suddenly entered a fantasy world called Narnia. She
spent a few hours in the home of the faun1 1 1 1 1 2, Mr Tumnus. They had tea
with cakes. He explained that the White Witch had conquered3 Narnia
and winter had lasted for one hundred years there. If a human ever
came to Narnia, he or she must be brought to the White Witch’s castle.
Tumnus was very kind and he liked Lucy very much. They became
friends. He couldn’t kidnap her, so he sent her home.
When she got back, only a few minutes had passed in the normal
world. She told Peter, Edmund and Susan about her adventure, but
they didn’t believe her story. When the other children checked the
wardrobe, all they saw was a normal wooden back.
A few days later, Edmund followed Lucy into the wardrobe and met the
White Witch. She offered him delicious sweets called Turkish Delight
and promised him he would become the King of Narnia if he brought
his brother and sisters to her castle.
While running away from the housekeeper after breaking a window, the
four children ran into the wardrobe and entered Narnia.
That was how their adventures began...
So, Christie, it is interesting, isn’t it? I suggest you read the book first
and then watch the film. “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is a
book which is worth reading and the film is also worth watching.
Tomorrow, I'll bring you the book to read.
See you soon.
All the best,
