040 – Mouse of Courage

March 14, 2012

    Listen to as PODCAST: LM0040-Mouse of Courage 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you voted on the most courageous in Narnia, this character would be the big cheese!


If you found a Narnian dictionary I think you would likely discover a picture of Reepicheep under the definition of courage. What this mouse lacks in stature he more than makes up for with his bravery. Reepicheep is quick to seek adventure and is well known (almost too well known) for defending his honor.

In Prince Caspian he leads a group of other fearless mice in the Second Battle of Beruna. During this time he near dies. After his recovery he becomes overly concerned of his honor by worrying too much about having lost his tail. In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Reepicheep befriends Eustace and helps him learn what it means to have courage.

    Reepicheep is my favorite. One of my favorite Reepicheep moments is when Ramandu’s daughter tells the travelers they must choose to believe or not whether the food at Aslan’s table is safe to eat. Reepicheep raises his glass (after asking someone to fill it–the flagon is too heavy for him) and says, “Lady, I pledge you.” This moment sort of sums up Reepicheep’s character of destiny and nobility.
