I had the chance to read Patti Callahan’s Once Upon A Wardrobe prior to it’s release today. I didn’t read any of the blurbs going in so I was not expecting a charming romp through Oxford with CS Lewis. Megs is a student at Oxford and frequently visits her dying younger brother. He has one request, that she find CS Lewis and ask him where Narnia came from. Her conversations with CS and his brother become antidotes about his life and how reality can create fiction. The journey will change both Megs and her brother, George. If you love The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, you have to pick this up now! Even if you didn’t, this story will enchant you and maybe have you also reaching for that old classic.
I received a free galley of this book from NetGalley in exchange for this review.
