The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe - C.S.Lewis
Some people will say that there's a problem when Peter gets to kill a villainous wolf, stabbing it with his sword so that it is covered with blood and hairs. Susan and Lucy, meanwhile, get to weep over a dead Aslan, or play nurse to wounded soldiers. Such anachronisms aside, however - and there are others who will argue that men should not kill either, should rather take on some peace-time nurturing qualities - this is a delicious book, teaching us how important it is to be honest and kind and fun-loving. I recommend it then; and now that I am out of the wardrobe, I might try to get back in sometime.
