Instead of hope and freedom Edmund runs to cruelty and fear.... ... middle of paper ... ...ong influence in the four children’s lives (145, 35-39).

No one really stood in her way but Aslan knew he needed to take back what was rightfully his.

The scarecrow claims he has no brain, yet when Dorothy is captured, he is the one who creates the plan to help her escape. The lion says he has no courage, yet he is remarkably brave when he must fight off the witches’ guards to save Dorothy. Dorothy was so eager to return home to Kansas she went through desperate measures to satisfy the wizard enough for him to help her, when she had the power to go home by herself the entire time. “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” has brought joy to people all over the world for many generations. As we grow older, the story enhances its meaning from a story about a girl wanting to return home, to a political, informal, brilliant novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the story unfold, meeting all of the characters and learning for myself just how far the imagination can be stretched. The story revolves around a grandmother and her grandson who have been unfortunate enough to stumble upon an annual meeting of witches at a hotel, hosted by the ever terrifying, Grand High Witch'. She catches the child ear wigging and turns him into a mouse, with the help of a secret potion; he did however hear their plans to destroy all the children of England before this cruel incident. Even though he is a mouse for the last three quarters of the book, a plan is concocted with his grandmother to destroy all of the witches and save the British children from extinction. To describe the story as powerful may be an exaggeration in terms, the story however is extremely enjoyable, and I do believe that all sorts of children of different ages would agree.
My favorite and most influential factor in my love for literature, was “The Box Car Children” by Gertrude Warner. Despite the somewhat depressing backstory of the children's lives they still appeared to go on adventures in which I envied. I needed to read more about these characters. To this day I can recall the mental images the books gave me, even though it was at least a decade ago when I last read
The exact replicas of Holmes’s home, and the 3-D renderings of Nero Wolfe’s house, are perfect examples of readers/fans becoming totally engrossed with theses stories. Because readers became familiar, and enjoyed these characters so much, they continue to read stories about the characters. &n... ... middle of paper ... ...t-out and cunning crime will not go unpunished. This notion plays on the idea that good always wins. An idea this simple is easy to overlook, but can have profound results.
Role of Symbolism in C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia It has always been amazing to realize how well the literature I read as a child has stayed with me through the years. It takes an exceptional writer to compose a narrative that maintains a storyline on the same level of a child's understanding; it takes everything short of a miracle to keep a child's interest. However, that undertaking has been accomplished by many skilled authors, and continues to be an area of growth in the literary world. Only this year the New York Times has given the genre of children's literature the credit it deserves by creating a separate best-sellers list just for outstanding children's books. Yet, on another level, children's literature is not only for the young.
The way that he develops the characters makes the reader care about them and makes them want to know what will happen to them throughout the story. I am a huge fan of this book even though John Green kind of angered me with all the emotional plot twists he kept throwing in the story but that was what made me love the book even more. Miles “Pudge” Halter, the protagonist, is fascinated and obsessed with people’s last words. He decides to go to a boarding school called Culver Creek Preparatory High School in search of the Great Perhaps. There, he meets his roommate Chip “the Colonel” Martin who introduces him to Alaska Young, the most beautiful girl he ever met.
