The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
I love the idea of doorways into other worlds. I particularly love the idea of finding another world inside a wardrobe. We don’t have wardrobes in the States, but a lot of people in Thailand have them (though they’re usually rattan, not thick wood). I think a wardrobe is such a unique, magical piece of furniture anyway – what a great hiding place! I would love to be Lucy, backing up as far as I can to make sure my siblings can’t see me even if they open the door . . . suddenly there’s a gust of cold air, a crunch beneath my feet, and the scratch of a pine tree against my skin . . . and I’m in Narnia! I would enjoy tea and conversation with the nice old Mr. Tumnus (and it wouldn’t matter that he betrayed me because it all works out in the end). I would love to meet Aslan, though I know I’d be a little scared of him. It would be one of those love-fear things. If I weren’t one of the Pevensie children, I think I would want to be a dryad – a tree nymph or spirit who loves to dance and can sometimes take human-like form.
What book do you wish you could live in?
Check out Karla’s post here.
This one’s so hard… but I’m going with Harry Potter.
I thought about that, too. I would LOVE to live in the HP world!!!! Would you want to be one of the main characters, or just any random wizard? 🙂
PS Sometimes Steven’s students call him “Snape” because he’s mean to them . . . but he’s always good in the end. 🙂
No sooner did I post that I would like to live in the world of “Madeline” by Ludwig Bemelmans, than the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse at Walt Disney World popped into my mind!
I love the thought of living in Paris as a little girl, cared for by caring nuns and having adventures, but I like even more the story of the courageous family Robinson who must work together on what sounds like a beautiful island. (And I love to walk through the treehouse in Disney!)
Thank you so much for continuing to keep ptntiug smiles on the thousands & hundreds of thousands of people’s faces across the world! I’ve only started doing missions this year, but I’m already hooked on the fact that I am part of something so much bigger that can elicit so much joy from people around me. =)keep up the great work the interview was awesome.
