r31 – Faun: Foe or Friend?
August 8, 2012
When Lucy visits Narnia for the first time she meets someone who initially might be her enemy. Do you know who it is?
Lucy Pevensie is a very trusting little girl who finds her way into Narnia and meets Mr. Tumnus (in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe). Although he had orders to take any human to the White Witch, once he actually meets Lucy he realizes what a heartless thing it would be to turn her in.
Later, during the Golden Age of Narnia (as told in The Horse and His Boy), he presents a plan that enables those in trouble to escape. Finally, in The Last Battle he helps explain a mystery by saying “The inside is larger than the outside.”
Do you know what the mystery was? Tell me and leave other comments or questions below.
