I am reading the first book in the Narnia series named The Magicians Nephew by C.S. Lewis. In this story two children and their uncle traveled to a strange unknown world called Narnia. When they arrived, the world appeared to have nothing in it, not even light. There was the sound of singing. It appeared that the singing was Aslan the lion using special magic. Slowly the world became Narnia.

“Narnia, Narnia, Narnia, awake. Love. Think. Speak. Be walking trees. Be talking beasts. Be divine waters.” (p. 136)

This quote stands out to me because it describes the creation and qualities of Narnia. Aslan summoned animals and enchanted them so they became talking animals. This way the beasts could use speech to keep a fair and serene world. The water he creates are divine which helps Narnia stay nurtured. Everything within is filled with magnificence and harmony.
