The new Narnia movie, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, is being advertised and merchandised in all the stores, and people are talking. While I was out shopping today, I first heard a clerk at the Christian bookstore rehearsing the entire plot line of the book for an attentive customer who wondered what all the Narnia stuff was. Then I went to Half-Price Books where I saw more Narnia posters, calendars, and paraphernalia, and the two college age guys next to me in the children’s section were looking for “some witch book by C.S. . . . uh . . . uh. . . ”
“Lewis,” I said helpfully. But the books were all gone.
