The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis

From The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis:

Polly was just beginning to cry, not with fear, and not even because he had hurt her wrist quite badly, but with furious anger. Within two seconds, however, they had something to think about that drove their own quarrels quite out of their minds.
I am reading this book with my students right now. It will probably be next week before we get here.

Grab a book and join the fun.

  1. I still haven’t read anything by C.S. Lewis which I’m slightly ashamed about! I wonder what exactly happened to Polly but also what got their attention! I will have to start reading the Narnia books!! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I hope you enjoy your weekend!

    Great quote! You’ve got me yearning for more. I read this book when I was much younger (maybe the age of your students?) and it’s such a great story. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s my Friday 56.

  3. When I reread this series as an adult this was absolutely my favorite! I loved how it showed without emphasis how all the details in Narnia happened – like the lamp post and the wardrobe. Thanks for sharing and reminding me! I’ll have to reread this one.
