Don't do it Lucy!

I've started reading the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and I'm a bit concerned.

When Lucy discovers Narnia the first person she meets is a faun named Mr. Tumnus. Mr. Tumnus is wearing no shirt, a red scarf and carrying parcels. He invites Lucy back to his cave for tea, toast, sardines and cake. I don't think the sardines sound very tempting but to each his own.

Stranger Danger! Stranger Danger! Apparently Lucy never learned the danger of going to a strangers' house. I especially would be weary of a stranger in the woods with no shirt on offering sardines and cake. Luckily for Lucy Mr. Tumnus feels guilty for luring her into a trap and lets her go. I mean this is a children's book guys!


  1. This is so obvious and yet... I would be as dumb as Lucy. I mean, c'mon, Mr. Tumnus is adorable!
