  • Tumnus’s bookshelf

    In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Lucy enters a magic wardrobe and goes through it into the land of Narnia. There she meets a faun named Tumnus and is invited to his home for tea. In his house is a shelf filled with books and we are told the names of four of them: Is Man a Myth?, Men, Monks, and Gamekeepers: A Study in Popular Legend, The Life and Letters of Silenus, and Nymphs and Their Ways. Have you ever wondered what the names of some of the other books might be? I never have but I found this site, Into the Wardrobe - a C. S. Lewis website | Home , which suggests possible titles and I am listing some of them below. (If you have never read The Chronicles of Narnia the names won’t make any sense but if you have you will probably enjoy this list.)
