The Power of Transformation

I finally realized what it is I think is special about the Narnia stories. I love how the characters in each of the books grow into people nobler than they were at the beginning of the book. In LWW, it’s Peter & Edmund. In PC, it’s Trumpkin and the beginnings of Caspian. In VDT, Caspian completes his transformation and Eustace begins his. In SC, Eustace completes his transformation, and Puddleglum & Jill grow as people. In HHB, pretty much all four of the main characters learn humility. In MN and LB, I’m not really sure if that’s the charm, though.
