Narnia - Mr. Tumnus


Lucy meets Mr. Tumnus when she stumbles through the back of the wardrobe into Narnia.

Mr. Tumnus is a Faun. A Faun is a man from the waist up. The lower portion is like a goat. The legs are shaped like a goat. Instead of feet, he has goat's hoofs. Glossy black hair covers his legs. He has a tail.

Tumnus he also has a short pointed beard with a head full of curls and two horns sticking out through the curls - one on each side of his head. His skin has a reddish color and his appearance is a bit unusual!

Lucy is the first human he has ever seen. When they meet, Mr. Tumnus is carrying an umbrella and a load of parcels. His only clothing is a red wool muffler around his neck. Another unusual thing about him!

In the valley in Narnia there is a cave in some reddish stone - this is where Mr. Tumnus lives. Not sure if this plays any importance in his reddish skin color - reddish stone / reddish skin? Unusual!

Tumnus plays the flute. He tells wonderful stories of dancing with Nymphs and Dryads. Unfortunately, he is a pawn as an employee of the White Witch. He is a kidnapper, but he lets Lucy return home.

The White Witch learns Mr. Tumnus' part in Lucy's escape. She captures him. Mr. Tumnus is turned into a stone statue.

Read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to find out more details of the story. Learn about Lucy, her sister Susan, and her brothers Peter and Edmund. Find out why they are living in a large castle like home in the English countryside instead of with their parents in London. What is "Turkish Delight"? What is the wardrobe? What happens when Lucy first discovers the wardrobe and do her siblings even believe her when she tells them what happened to her and what she saw? Are they brave enough to follow her through the back of the wardrobe into Narnia? Who is the White Witch? Who is Queen Jadis? Who is Professor Digory Kirke? Who is Mrs. Macready? Who is Prince Caspian? What is the history of the wardrobe? Do Lucy, Susan, Peter and Edmund ever get to return to London to be with their parents?

Note: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and all Narnia books are from my personal library.
