The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Categories: Fiction

I have read a wonderful, adventure novel. It is "The Chronicles of Narnia": "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" by famous writer, C.S. Lewis. The story is mainly about four siblings - Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter who entered Narnia through the door of a big wardrobe, fought and overcame the White Witch's power. They finally saved Narnia from being winter.

The major characters -- Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter were hero of the novel. They helped the animals and saved Narnia.

But my favourite character is a minor character. He is one of the animals of Narnia. The book described him like that: "He was only a little taller than Lucy and he carried over his head an umbrella, white with snow. From the waist upwards he was like a man, but his legs were shaped like goat's and instead if feet he had goat's hoofs. He also had a tail". Yes, my favourite character is Mr.Tumnus.

Mr. Tumnus was the first person Lucy met. He was kind-hearted, honest, sacrifice and introspective. Mr. Tumnus was kind-hearted. When he first met Lucy, he greeted her kindly and invited her home to have some tea.

Actually Mr. Tumnus worked with the White Witch, he brought out a strange little flute which was mage of straw and he played it. The book quoted that, "The tune he played made Lucy want to cry and laugh and dance and go to sleep all the same time." Originally Mr. Tumnus wanted to make Lucy sleep.

But it seemed that Mr. Tumnus was very nervous as his tune made Lucy cry and dance and laugh and go to sleep at the same time. 

That showed that Mr. Tumnus was shamed of being worked with White Witch. He started to feel sorry for his behavior. So he admitted his wrongs. He said, "Oh- oh-oh! I am such a bad Faun. Taken service under the White Witch. That's what I am. I'm in the pay of the White Witch. I had orders from the White Witch that if ever I saw a Son of Adam or a Daughter of Eve in the wood, I was to catch them and hand them over to her......" He felt sorry for himself. I admired his braveness to tell the truth and admit the wrongs.

Mr. Tumnus said that, "If I don't obey the White Witch, she's sure to find out. And she'll have my tail cut off, and my horns sawn off, and my beard plucked out, and she'll wave over my beautiful, cloven hoofs and turn them into horrid solid hoofs like a wretched horse's. And if she is extra and specially angry she'll turn me into stone and I shall be only a statue of a Faun..." Mr. Tumnus definitely knew that if he didn't give Lucy out, he would be a stone statue and even lost his whole life. 

If he gave out Lucy, he could get a huge pay. But he had a kind and sacrificing heart. He told Lucy, "Of course I will let you go home and be off home as quickly as you can and can you ever forgive me for what I meant to do?" Mr. Tumnus showed her the way to the door of the wardrobe himself although there were spies of the White Witch in the forest. He still helped Lucy and asked her for forgiveness bravely. I really admired Mr. Tumnus.

I admired Mr. Tumnus for his highly behaviors. He was brave for admitting and facing his wrongs and asking for forgiveness. Nowadays, most of the teenagers won't have a sorry heart when they did something wrong. They always think that they are right. They won't try to evaluate themselves. Sometime I am not polite, always don't admit my wrongs. So I think we should be placed Mr. Tumnus as a model, always warning ourselves to be a good child.
