 What she says: I'm fine
 What she means: I understand the Chronicles
 of Narnia was at its heart a fairytale with
 theological analogies for children. But why did
 Lewis never address how they had to adapted
 to life on Earth again. Why does no one talk
 about how the Pevensies had to grow up with
 a kingdom of responsibilities on their shoul-
 ders, only to return to Earth and be children
 Take Lucy, she was youngest and perhaps
 she adapted more quickly-but she had the
 memories and mind of a grown woman in
 an adolescent body. Edmund literally found
 himself in Narnia, he went from a selfish boy
 to mature and experienced man. He found a
 purpose and identity through his experiences
 to come back as just Edmund, Peter's younger
 brother. Did people wonder why the sullen,
 sour boy came back, carrying himself like a
 wisened king? Did his mother wonder why
 he and Peter suddenly got along so well, why
 they spent so much time together now? And
 Susan, the girl of logistics and reason came
 back with a difference in her. She learned how
 to be a diplomat and ambassador, Susan the
 Gentle had to live to endure not-so-gentle
 circumstances. She had the respect she
 wanted, only to be just another teen girl. And
 Peter, he entered the manhood and maturity
 he so wanted. He earned the responsibility

 belief, but walking around in the body of a
