LETTER: Narnia series sparks the imagination of young writer

I first picked it up because of its wonderful illustrations but put it down only after my thinking sprang to different ideas and thoughts.

Narnia taught me how to make an uplifting, progressive and well told story. It gave me rich and passionate ideas about story building craftsmanship. Narnia should be picked up first for all new and developing writers.
