The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Fantastical Stories - Students will learn that even in the most fantastical settings, literature can teach us real lessons about life. Students will explore the opposition of good versus evil, the value in courage, adventure, forgiveness, and honesty, and the importance of maintaining the natural world. They will begin to consider how authors convince readers to believe the impossible and discuss the history and use of special effects in movies to begin to see how imagination and creativity can inspire progress and change.
