This novel, Once Upon a Wardrobe, is a story that grew out of many other stories, and I hope you love it. I have often wondered about the time in C. S. Lewis’ life when he decided to start The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. What was the origin story? What made him start and then stop and then start again? While I thought about these questions, a young boy named George Devonshire and his sister, Megs visited my imagination. Living in Worcester, England in 1950, seven-year-old George is dying and his seventeen-year old beloved sister can’t save him; she loves him fiercely and will do anything for him. This young boy asks his sister to find the answer to his most pressing question, “Where did Narnia come from?” And she set off to find out -- and I hope you'll enjoy their adventures!
